Moments Of The Soft Persuasion - Lyrics

Our moments of the soft persuasion
Chiming bells, the first occasion
Tell the rest a smile awaken
Till the last reminder shaken
From whatever rude and sorrow
Now, the time is now, tomorrow

In the instant of remaking
Just the giving of the taking
In the instant of the living
Just the taking of the giving

Nothing more than earth and water
Smiles of spring from barren daughter
Who at last in perfect motion
Turning ’round embrace the ocean
Gracious calf of mankind suffering
Sacrifice of old is ending

In the instant of remaking
Just the giving of the taking
In the instant of the living
Just the taking of the giving

Moments of the soft persuasion
Chiming bells, the first occasion
Tell the rest a smile awaken
Till the last reminder shaken
From whatever rude and sorrow
Now, the time is now, tomorrow

Writer(s): SIMON JOHN S, YARROW PETER
