Peace Like A River
by Paul Simon

Peace like a river ran through the city
Long past the midnight curfew
We sat starry-eyed
We were satisfied
And I remember
Misinformation followed us like a plague
Nobody knew from time to time
If the plans where changed
If the plans were changed.

You can beat us with wires
You can beat us with chains
You can run out your rules
But you know you can’t outrun the history train
I've seen a glorious day.

Four in the morning
I woke up from out of my dreams
Nowhere to go but back to sleep
But I’m reconciled
Oh, oh, oh, I’m gonna be up for a while

© Paul Simon

Great song reference! I'm really eager to stop being cynical about everything. I love it that America elected Obama. I thought the country was too racist for that to ever happen. I am so happy that I was wrong. So happy about Obama,just feeling so happy.
