Artist/Band: Runrig
Lyrics for Song: Protect and Survive
Lyrics for Album: Essential [2011]



The red hot sun burns up the hill

The winter's bride,

The summer's king

I tramp these acres and I feel

Once upon a time

Then it seemed that everything

You saw and touched

And felt was real

You turned the tap

And you turned the wheel

Breathing free



Once in a lifetime

You live and love

Once in a lifetime

You die

Once in a moment

The sun goes down

Protect and survive



Now you search

The open evening sky

Trace the memory in your eyes

For the prophet's hard rain

And the deluge lie

In tears around your door

Once there were trees

And livestock here

A mother's love,

The warnings clear

But you chose to turn

Away from fear

Breathing free



Once in a lifetime

You live and love

Once in a lifetime

You die

Once in a moment

The sun goes down

Protect and survive



Protect and survive

Protect and survive



Now there's a faceless cross

On a distant hill

A wasted voice, a silent scream

Where the lovers love

And the dreamers dream

You stand and dream alone

You took your sacrifice

To the gods of war

Traded your children's lives

For a mess of gold

And you beat your plough-shares

Into swords

Breathing free



Once in a lifetime

You live and love

Once in a lifetime

You die

Once in a moment

The sun goes down

Protect and survive
