8 One Child Listen by lords of irony
say you want a god to lift you o’er these roads
i say that that’s not odd they say that god will know
how to hold your heart and listen
reacquaint yourself with what’s been missing
how to hold you down and bring a smile
how to make everything seem all right for a while for a while

is this all there is then what to make of it
since we’re sitting ‘round i’ll write some stories down
of a magic man who feels us
of a woman that’ll only reveal us
of imagined places if you will
of another time can’t wait until wait until

is there a place is there a time for you

after all you’ve done all you’ve seen all you’ve known
there stands the one like a dream like your own
and when she smiles the rainbows collide
and she wants all of yours and you want all of mine
there’ll be one child listen
say you want a god to lift you o’er these roads
i say that that’s not odd they say that god will know
they say that god will know they say that god will know
they say that god’ll know

i know you’ll believe in things you cannot see like my little song
you cannot prove it wrong

it’s when you decide in the dead of the night
on a path that is clear by your side
it all reconciles down the ways and the miles
and the twists and the turns of your life

there’ll be one child listen
is there a place
is there a time
for you.
