looking back

Klaus J. Gerken

don’t you see
it wasn’t me
i wasn’t you
it wasn’t true

we lived together
through foul weather
the waves were lapping
and we were napping

it wasn’t much
there was no touch
a lost endeavour
shared together

the years passed slowly
you called me holy
it didn’t matter
our lives were shattered

there is no ending
just false beginnings
the road less travelled
is to be marvelled

Klaus J. Gerken

when the marching’s over
what will you do
what will you do
what will you do

marching is my special way
to get out there and have my say
burn the flag make lots of waves
time for us to save the world

but

when the marching’s over
what will you do
what will you do
what will you do

have a beer and watch the news
done my bit and need a rest
have to watch me on TV
ruined my shoes they were the best

when the marching’s over
that’s what we do
that’s what we do
that’s what we do!
