The Basics of Life
by Avalon

Album: Another Time, Another Place
by Avalon


We've turned the page for a new day has dawned
We've rearranged what is right and what's wrong
Somehow we've drifted so far from the truth
That we can't get back home

And where are the virtues that once gave us light
And where are the morals that governed our lives
Someday we all will awake and look back
Just to find what we've lost, yeah

We need to get back to the basics of life
A heart that is pure and a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
You see these are the basics, we need to get back to the basics of life

The newest rage is to reason it out
Oh, just meditate and you can overcome every doubt
After all man is a God
They say God is no longer alive

I still believe in the old rugged cross
And I still believe there is hope for the lost
And I know the rock of all ages will stand
Through the changes of time, through the changes of time

We need to get back to the basics of life
A heart that is pure and a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics, we need to get back to the basics of life

We've let the darkness invade us too long
We've got to turn the tide, yeah
Oh and we need the passion that burned long ago
To come and open our eyes
There's no room for compromise

We need to get back to the basics of life
With a heart that is pure and a love that is blind

We need to get back to the basics of life
A heart that is pure and a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics, we need to get back to the basics of life

And a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
See these are the basics, we need to get back to the basics of life

Get back, oh, I still believe in the basics of life
We gotta go back to the basics of life
