Radio 57, side A, track 4: “Peace In Our Time” by Eddie Money

Eddie Money - Peace In Our TimeOh, Eddie Money, my god man, I love you so much!!!  I kinda remembered this song, but it wasn’t until I hit Play that I was immediately transported back to January 1, 1990, and I was groggy from staying up for a night and a day recording music off the radio and here was the first “new” song I’d recorded after I finished cleaning up all those songs from the countdown, and this song made me unbelievably happy.  I mean, I already knew that this was going to be a great year for music thanks to “Roam”, but I just loved your music so much already, Eddie Money, and this song just built on the already awesome music of yours I’d already recorded.  And what a great song to start off a new decade.  Not just a song by you, but a song about creating peace in our time.  And not just peace in our time, but peace in our time set to music by Eddie Money!  The only incentive I’d had for going to heaven before this song was NOT going to hell, but if heaven was going to be piping in music by you, Eddie Money, well then sign me up!  I was already excited about the great music I was sure to hear in 1990, but you’ve already set the bar really high, and we hadn’t even made it through one whole day of the new year!

“Peace In Our Time”

Oh, darlin’

How strong is love supposed ta be

Surrounded by fire’n magic
We long to be free

Cheatin’
Heatin’ up
Down on the streets’a shame

Ta be strong enough
Ta fly without love like a phoenix from the flame

Gotta have faith
(Faith)
To work it out, faith and hope
(Hope)
Without a doubt, give us strength
(Strength)
To make a start
Put a song in our heart

Then we’re gonna break down the walls
And build the prison with the stone

‘Cause you and I know what love is worth

Gonna build a heaven on Earth

Runnin’ in the wheels of fortune
Turnin’ water into wine

Gonna make love the bottom line

Gonna find peace in our time

Whoa ohhh

Peace in our time

Sweet, sweet darlin’

When there is lightnin’ in the sky

Come outta the storm

And into the warmth of the healin’ I’ll supply

Gotta have faith
(Faith)
And get it fast, faith and hope
(Hope)
If you let it last, give us strength
(Strength)
Ta reach the stars
Put a song in our heart

Then we’re gonna break down the walls
And build the prison with the stone

‘Cause you and I know what love is worth

Gonna build a heaven on Earth

Whoa ohhh

And the sign
(Sign)
Of the dove
(Dove)
Gonna shine (shine)
Shine (shine)
Shine

On the wing
(Sing)
And a prayer
(Yeah)
We’ll get by (by)
By (by)
Byyy

<awesome Eddie Money jam>

Keep on keepin’ on
As long as the dreams’a true

When cities are dust
It’s heaven or bust in the shape of me and you

Gotta have faith
(Faith)
Ta goad us along, now there’s hope
(Hope)
Ta carry us on
Give us strength
(Strength)
We’ll never go wrong
With this song in our hearts

Then we’re gonna break down the walls
And build the prison with the stone

‘Cause you and I know what love is worth

Gonna build a heaven on Earth

Runnin’ in the wheels of fortune
Turnin’ water into wine

Gonna make love the bottom line

Gonna find peace in our time

Whoa ohhh

Peace in our time

Then we’re gonna break down the walls
And build the prison with the stone

‘Cause you and I know what love is worth

Gonna build a heaven on Earth
