    "Once Upon A Time" Lyrics

    Simple Minds

    And you, yes you speak to me tonight
    And you say so, say so that once upon a time
    When love, love was a white dove
    And hope, long live hope, could spin the whole world 'round

    I'm talking east to west
    I'm talking lost and found
    Get up to the mountain top
    I'm going to drop unto the ground

    That's once upon a time
    You raise me up when I know you're around

    But God only knows, what God only knows
    You lift me up and you spin me around
    God only knows but God only knows

    That's time
    Time looked around herself
    Time got excited
    That's when we all got started

    Still I hear you, yes, still you speak to me tonight
    You say then how come out of love
    Is all this cruelty arising?
    Well, I said look, well, will you look at you?
    You're frightened

    I see that you smile through weariness
    But there is not much else enlightened
    Well, that's a question down to time

    You life me up when I know you're around
    God only knows, God only knows
    Still you raise me up when I know you're around
    God only knows, God only knows
    That's time
