Lyrics

Lost Time … R.F.K. Rick Demers

The moon rode high, in the Arlington sky
As they laid him down
The world spoke in whispers, as history took him
To her hallowed ground
Lost time is never found again
Gunned down, was a hope for change
I was young but I recall the pain


Out from a shadow, his own path he’d followed
A voice for the victimized
Finding the hungry, in a land of plenty
He opened a nation’s eyes
Lost time is never found again
Gunned down was a hope for change
It took years for me to understand

Close to the edge, on destiny’s thread
He fought against bigotry
Seeking the noble, in forgotten people
He saw their possibilities
Lost time is never found again
Like sand sifting through your hand
He was a great American

We all have the power to see
Things as they are and ask why
But he dreamt of things that were not
And paid for those dreams with his life

The moon rode high, in the Arlington sky
As they laid him down
