Lyrics

Echoes of Yesterday / Album Echoes Of Yesterday / June 01 2018
written by Paul Dempsey/California

(v1)
They left their marks on the walls of caves
In ancient footprints just beneath the waves
In monuments among the shifting sands
Monuments that to this day still stand

(v2)
They gave us religions, holy men and high priests
They started many wars but never a lasting peace
They built great castles with walls of stone
But their enemies’ and time cut to the bone

(chorus)
Like turning around and seeing the past
Or looking ahead knowing it won’t last
Listening for the questions never asked
Time moves on and all things slip away
But you can still hear the echoes of yesterday

(bridge)
They gave us governments with laws and rules
Many great people and a boatload of fools
They gave us medicine to ease our pain
Then cleansed the land of all the bloodstains

(v4)
They created many gods to destroy the beast
Started many wars but never a lasting peace
Left many cities consumed in flames
Carried many flags and had many names

(chorus)
Like turning around and seeing the past
Or looking ahead knowing it won’t last
Listening for the questions never asked
Time moves on and all things slip away
But you can still hear the echoes of yesterday
