Back to Neverland

Orleans 2013 275

Come back again, Peter
We could fly far away
Let’s use up all of our money
And blame a rainy day

Come back again, Peter
And we’ll never grow old
You and I forget the past
And leave those stories still untold

Come back again, Peter
I’ll forgive the whole Wendy thing
Even though you’ve kept in touch with her
Even if she wears your ring

Come back again, Peter
You did promise you’d never leave
Yes, perhaps that was another life
A life I no longer believe

Come back again, Peter
We were always more than friends
And though time cannot cure me of my youth
A broken heart it will mend

Fly back again, Peter
Fly home to me
Give my heart another chance
Another chance to bleed

But, please, whatever you do
Just don’t let me know
That there was no intention to stay
You were simply waiting to grow

As the man you’ve become
And the boy of my dreams
Were never in tandem
A split in the seams

Mandela died today

ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas

the news of his death was no surprise

to a world already dressed in black

a world already mourning

a man who changed the world

from a world coloured black and white

to a world so colourful

that not a single shade

could ever matter the most.

We lost a piece of history today

ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas,

Let’s hope we can hold onto the rainbow.
