“40 Summers”
Artist: Pressgang
Albums: Mappa Mundi (1997)

All the words that we have sung
And all the chapters that we've written
And all the singing and the fun
I hope they won't all get forgotten
Forty summers gone

Here's a song for a songbird
One whose tears I have heard
When choice
Is a meaningless word

And here's a song for a summer's day
One that should have been past
With wide blue skies
And glorious sun

But all the words that we have sung
And all the chapters that we've written
And all the singing and the fun
I hope they don't all get forgotten

And I can take my share of the pain
Because I took my share of pleasure
But for the song and all the games
I hope we both can spend together
Forty summers long

Here's a song for the songbird
That is blown by the wind
And caught in the current
Helpless as sin

And here's a song for the summer's day
One that's not long become
Where there's friends and there's singing
And glorious fun

But all the words that we have sung
And all the chapters that we've written
And all the singing and the fun
I hope they don't all get forgotten

And I can take my share of the pain
Because I took my share of pleasure
But for the song and for the games
I hope we both can live together

We have not always been
And will not always be
And all that's in between
Was made by you and me

All the words that we have done
And all the chapters that we've written
And all the singing and the fun
I hope they won't all get forgotten

And I can take my share of the pain
Because I took my share of pleasure
And for the song and for the games
I hope we all can live together
