Peace Like a River

ŠPaul Simon, released on Paul Simon (album) 1972

.

Ah, peace like a river ran through the city

Long past the midnight curfew

We sat starry-eyed

Ooh, oh, we were satisfied

O-o-oh, And I remember

Misinformation followed us like a plague

Nobody knew from time to time

If the plans were changed

Oh, oh, oh, if the plans were changed.

.

You can beat us with wires

You can beat us with chains

You can run out your rules

But you know you can't outrun the history train

I seen a glorious day, aiee

.

Ah, four in the morning

I woke up from out of my dreams

Nowhere to go but back to sleep

But I'm reconciled

Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while

Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while

.

Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while

.
