#Music – The Byrds – “Turn, Turn, Turn”

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven


A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep


To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven


A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together


To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven


A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing


To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven


A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

The Byrds (/bɜːrdz/) were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1964. The band underwent multiple lineup changes throughout its existence, with frontman Roger McGuinn (known as Jim McGuinn until mid-1967) remaining the sole consistent member. Although their time as one of the most popular groups in the world only lasted for a short period in the mid-1960s, the Byrds are today considered by critics to be among the most influential rock acts of their era. Their signature blend of clear harmony singing and McGuinn’s jangly twelve-string Rickenbacker guitar was “absorbed into the vocabulary of rock” and has continued to be influential.
