Generation Away (Commentary)

If I was a summer, I'd wanna be '69
I'd be chillin, listening to Dylan
Holding up a peace sign

And if I was a prison, I'd wanna be Folsom
Johnny Cash be rocking that black, singing to the stripes
And kicking out all the lights

Chorus
Hey eh, what can I say
I hope they talk about us that way
There ain't no place I'd rather be
Than right here making history
Hey eh, what can we do, here we are, it's me and you
So let's take all the pictures we can take
For the generation away

Well if I was an old car, I'd wanna be a Mustang
American red with a white rag top
On a blue sky kinda day

And if I was a preacher, I'd wanna be Dr. King
I know he's up there smiling down
Cause we all still have a dream

Repeat Chorus

Lets make some memories while we can
Laugh and love, don't miss your chance
Cause He's still got the whole world in His hands, so baby let's dance

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Yeah singing hey eh, what can I say
I hope they talk about us that way
Raise your voice and have no fear
Let em know that you were here
Singing hey eh, what can we do, here we are, its me and you
So lets take all the pictures we can take
And lets make all the memories we can make
For the generation away

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
He's got the whole world in His hands (2x)
He's got the whole wide world right in His hands
So come on now everybody just dance
He's got the whole world in His hands (2x)
He's got the whole wide world right in His hands
So sing out loud and wave your hands

Got the whole world
Got the whole wide world
The whole wide world

Oh yeah
Everybody in the party
Everybody in the place
Come on and put your hands up
Come on and put your hands up
