lyrics and music by Lawrence
Each year as we travel round the sun
We go a billion kilometers,
Give or take some.
And after this long, long journey through Space,
Isn't it strange we end up in exactly the same place.
The earth weighs six septillion tons
I think that's in kilograms,
Give or take some
But nothing could weigh so heavy on me
If I never again, you would see.
And you've held our hands through all of our fears
And you carried us high with joy through our tears
And after so many times round the sun
Its sure been a long, long, long,
long, long, long
Walk to freedom
Now everyone needs some times to rest,
But we'll carry on,
We're going to try and really do our best
But I know that in just a few more turns round the sun,
We all be on that long long long
Walk to freedom.
Original song performed and written by Lawrence Hilton
Recorded at Theydon Studios London (work in progress)
