​Spirits Past

This song is by Gil Scott-Heron and appears on the album Spirits (1994).

It's getting to be the time of year
When people once spoke of love and good cheer
Peace on Earth and good will to all men

And we all believed that there'd come a day
When peace would be much more than "on it's way"
Cause peace has been on it's way since I don't know when

And the folks who decide what will be
They haven't confided in me
And I don't think that everybody can wait till then

It makes me sad that my kids won't see
Christmas the way it used to be
I was so excited though we didn't have a dime

But that seems like such a long time ago
And I am still a child I know
But it seems like we've lost much more than the time

Cause the folks who decide what will be
They haven't confided in me
And I don't think that everybody can wait till then

No, I don't think that everybody can wait till then

No, I don't think that everybody can wait till then
