Don Edwards Literary Memorial

May 21, 2006


LeRoy, here is an Loyd Webber song…lyrics by Jim Steinman… sung by the “boyzone” pop group. Love the song, but the lyrics are peculiar….I wonder what you think of them. You might want to hear the song sung by these kids. You and I have been talking about our early faith and how we progressed in our own more mature beliefs. These lyrics could reflect Nazi Germany or something more sublime. Interesting.

Andrew Lloyd Webber (music)/Jim Steinman(lyrics)

“No matter what they tell us
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach us
What we believe is true

No matter what they call us
However they attack
No matter where they take us
We’ll find our own way back

I can’t deny what I believe
I can’t be what I’m not
I know I’ll love forever
I know, no matter what

If only tears were laughter
If only night was day
If only prayers were answered
Then we would hear God say

No matter what they tell you
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach you
What you believe is true…”

…and so on.
