DON'T SAY NEVER

You say we'll be here for ever

And we'll never leave this place

But when the sun has finished its journey

There'll be nothing in this space

 

Don't say never never Nothing can last forever

 

You can see the trees of the forests

Feel the cool cool spray of the rain

But when the clouds come after the felling

It will wash the earth away

And you hear the tale of the sailors

And you see them dance from the shore

And they're dancing in the path of the whalers

And you'll hear their song no more

Never hear that song

 

Don't say never never Nothing can last forever

 

You can send a ship to the planets

You can send your voice to the stars

But you can't convince all of your countries

Not to send their sons to war

As you build your great global empire

You can plan ten thousand years

But when the stars are sending their answer

There'll be no one left to hear

There'll be no one left

 

Don't say never never Nothing can last forever

 

You say you'll love me for ever

And you'll never go away

But when this song folds back on its echo

There'll be nothing left to say

There'll be nothing left
