lyrics

Somedays there is peace
When the birds hold their melodies
And the wind pesters not the leaves
And the March hare sleeps on

It's at times such as these
My spirit sinks as deep as the
Silver trickle water flows
From the fields and folds
To the echo of the old farmer's well

For when will the red fox bark?
When will the cuckoo call?

Somedays there is peace
When the men leave their factories
And the children have the dusty road
As a pallet for their heads to their toes

But when will the red fox bark?
When will the cuckoo call?
May it be the longest time
For I love the quiet and calm
Reflection of the corner
Where I am alone and free

But when will the red fox bark?
When will the cuckoo call?
When will the canons roar?
When will the forest fall?

Somedays there is peace
Somedays there is peace
Somedays there is peace
