A little baby born in his home
The scent of lavender and mother’s love the first to his nose
He takes a breath cries out, the warmth of the walls around him

At last it is the gift from the gods
A grin from one ear to the next a breath the midwife saw
So deep, at peace, a golden light surrounding everyone
She took her by the hand and said

We are the ones, who are having all of the fun
Because we take a deep breath and love in the moment
We are the ones, who are having all of the fun
Because we take a deep breath and love in the moment

A little boy he runs to his home
Sunk with tears upon his eyes a frightened story told
About the boys at school, who picked on him for playing with spiders

They pushed me and they shoved me, they tore off the legs
The darkness deep hidden inside, let out with the plague
I couldn’t help I was so afraid of trying
His mother held him close and said

We are the ones…

A young man he visits his home a sort of subtle sadness
A drip from his nose his canvass wet and cold
His message to the world forgotten
They would not even listen they all turned their heads
Some cogs inside a wheel of fear, consumption instead of listening
To all of us we’re trying you know
I know, I know I’m to remember that

We are the ones…

The boy he is a man now he visits his home
With a partner upon his shoulder a lover of his own
He stops, a racing heart is trying to catch him
His mother slows him down and she says,
Hello, where have you been?
It’s been to long my dear child, won’t you come in
Don’t be embarrassed or shy, I can see love in your eyes
You both are always welcome
And I’m sure you’ve already told him that

We are the ones…

The man he is a father now he visits his home
With a husband and a daughter, a family of his own
He stands in love and silence by his mother’s side
Releasing all his love to her in the look in his eyes
And then, his daughter began
She said, grandma I love you and when you’re in heaven
Please don’t loose sight, remember to kiss me goodnight
And with each and every story, I’ll remember how you told me that

We are the ones…
