Herbert Kretzmer Turning Lyrics

Did you see them
Going off to fight?
Children of the barricade
Who didn't last the night?
Did you see them
Lying where they died?
Someone used to cradle them
And kiss them when they cried.
Did you see them lying side by side?

Who will wake them?
No one ever will.
No one ever told them
That a summer day can kill.
They were schoolboys.
Never held a gun...
Fighting for a new world
That would rise up with the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?

Nothing changes. Nothing ever will.
Every year another brat, another mouth to fill.
Same old story. What's the use of tears?
What's the use of praying
If there's nobody who hears?
Turning turning turning turning turning
Through the years.

Turning, turning, turning through the years.
Minutes into hours, and the hours into years.
Nothing changes. Nothing ever can.
Round about the roundabout, and back where you began.
Round and round and back where you began!
