Words and music by Tom Morley.

It’s on the tip of my tongue – there is a word for it
I’m askin’ everybody in Power ‘cos I think we could learn from it
It describes a commitment, to a cause
You’re a star but without the applause
How come they’ve never heard of it?

Whatever happened to – Dedication?
Whatever happened to – Transformation?
Whatever happened to – The Heart of the Nation?
Whatever happened to the Art of Conversation?

Speak to me of Visions and Dreams
Peace One Day – Now we’re talkin’
Walk the Talk and we’re gonna see
Peace One Daaaaay

We need more inverted commas – less parenthesis
The thesaurus arrives but we say – “We never sent for this!”
It’s somehow wrong now, to be clever
Curiosity’s met with “Whatever..”
Come on, people weren’t meant for this!

Whatever happened to – Inspiration?
Whatever happened to – Liberation?
Whatever happened to – The Heart of the Nation?
Whatever happened to the Art of Conversation?

Speak to me of Visions and Dreams
Peace One Day – Now we’re talkin’
Walk the Talk and we’re gonna see
Peace One Daaaaay

War, yes it’s time, to talk dirty
It’s a shambles, a mess, a disgrace and it’s dealings are murky.
But let’s go to the top and talk to the Leaders
Lookout for the words that they feed us
Collateral Damage? That’s us, and we’re hurtin’.

Whatever happened to – Arbitration?
Whatever happened to – Jubilation
Whatever happened to – The Heart of the Nation?
Whatever happened to the Art of Conversation?

Speak to me of Visions and Dreams
Peace One Day – Now we’re talkin’
Walk the Talk and we’re gonna see
Peace One Daaaaay

(REPEAT CHORUS)
