I Wish Wed All Been Ready
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Life was filled with guns and war Everyone got trampled on the floor I wish we'd all been ready. Children died, the days grew cold A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold I wish we'd all been ready. There's no time to change your mind The Son has come and you've been left behind A man and wife asleep in bed She hears a noise and turns her head, he's gone I wish we'd all been ready. And two friends walking up a hill One disappears and one's left standing still I hope we'll all be ready. There'll be no time to change your mind When the Son returns Don't be left behind. Life is filled with bombs and guns Heaven help the little ones I hope you'll all be ready. Children died, the days grow cold A piece of... Gold, that's all people... oil, gold There'll be no time to change your mind. There'll be no excuse for being blind And the Father will speak And the angels will come from high The chariot will come down Don't be left behind. Don't be left behind Don't be left behind Don't be left behind No! Don't be left behind Don't be left, don't be left.
