One By One (The New Seekers)

As the world was turning, long ago way back in time Not a star was burning, only darkness filled the sky Then the land was covered by the sun Flowers started growing one by one One by one came the leaves to the trees One by one came the waves on the seas Came a man and the wife, life had begun And they were blessed with little children One by one Everyone a brother, joining hands in songs of praise Helping one an other, through the dawning of the age But soon the bonds of friendship were undone Fighting for their places in the sun One by one came the boats to the shores One by one went the young men to the wars Many died in the fight and few returned One by one they told the leason they had learned One by one we must kneel we must pray One by one we must learn to love again Let our children walk out in the sun Through the land let's all join hands One by one One by one came the leaves to the trees One by one came the waves upon the seas. Came a man and the wife, life had begun Let us all join hands togeather one by one
