It’s Always There

Words & Music by David & Shirley Faraday


Verse 1

Living life from day to day

I feel secure in my own way, it seems to last  

I’m carefree in the life I lead

Comforted by many things I need and believe 


Chorus 1

But it doesn’t go away, it doesn’t go away.

What I feel is right and wrong’s still there.

The image of people, I’ve never met

In a world I’d like to influence,

To make some kind of difference, someday

 

Verse 2

I pack my bags head on my way

A holiday to get way and relax  

Enjoying time with family,

My friends and those I simply meet, to share, without a care.

 

Chorus 1 (see above)

 

Verse 3

This consequential happenstance,

When and where we’re born by chance,

Not knowingly prepared for what we face.

Choices made by those in power,

Random acts, divisive mire.

I just don’t know, what do I, can I, say?

 

Chorus 2

But, don’t let go away, it mustn’t go away

What I feel is right and wrong’s still there

The image of people, I’ve never met

In a world I’d like to influence, to make some kind of difference,

I’m thinking now, but I haven’t made it yet.

 

Verse 4

I must recognise reality,

Banish thoughts of fealty,

To lords of hope that never, ever reign.

Challenge ignorance and those in power,

My choice is made, time to aspire

I’m thinking now, I’ll make a difference yet

My choice is made, time to inspire

I’m thinking now, I’ll make a difference yet
