Peace In Our Time

Ray Davies, released on Working Man's Café (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2007

.

Hey girl let's begin again and try to help ourselves

We're like weary warriors who just came back from hell

You can keep your territory, I will stay in mine

Carefully negotiate and leave this battleground behind

.

All we deserve is some peace in our time

Unconditional love is better

Peace in our time

.

And it really doesn't matter

'Cause the world keeps going round

Just like a rollercoaster

If you let it, it will crush you down

.

All we deserve is some peace in our time

I don't need no sympathy

Just some peace of mind

.

The two of us can't take it

Gotta have a truce so we can start

To pull it back together

Otherwise we're gonna fall apart

.

I'm tearing up the bunch of angry letters that you sent

The living room's a wreck from all the rows

The atmosphere is stifled with aggression

Ultimatums, deadlines and depression

.

Oh we both deserve a better life

This friction's killing me

Don't want to be a Buddhist but I need some peace and harmony and

.

All that I ask is some peace in my time

A little bit of understanding peace in our time

.

And I know that we can make it

But we gotta compromise

Don't want no more division

So end this war and live our lives

.

'Cause all we deserve is peace in our time

Unconditional understanding peace in our time

I'm tearing up the bunch of angry letters that you sent

Peace in our time

Peace in our time
