When the World Was Woken (Harvest Barclay James)

When the world was woken Save all unknowing eyes And thoughts that once were spoken Left only to despise And when the dawn is breaking Look upward to the sky If life is so hard to live Why not die? When the world has woken And shadows leave the air Then each spell will be broken For everyone who cares The day will then be endless The night will soon pass by If life is so hard to live Why not die? When the world has woken For all who see the sun And gentle words are spoken The dawning has begun Then man can live together With one triumphant cry If life is so hard to live Why not die?
