AND WHEN SHE SANG

You

you stand up on the stage

voice as clear as a bell

that tolls

for me

We

are on the same page

you tell the truth

no one can sleep safe

in their beds

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

is torn to shreds

       

And when she sang             true love never dies

it was then that the tears conquered me

and when she sang            that it’s never too late

then I knew

it was too late

for me

      

Losers

queue up to sing wer blues

jostling for a seat

I could never afford

You

you sing of winners

be they in the stocks

or on the rocks

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

is on the block

      

CHORUS

      

Outside

the bombs are raining down

the bombs we make so well

the bombs we have

to sell

He

is sleeping on the ground

best friend by his side

Momma

in his dreams

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

tests the seams

      

CHORUS

      

Play

play me a song

make it sweet

don’t make it too long

Say

say something true

and when we meet

let me sing with

You

you stand up on the stage

voice as clear as a bell

that tolls

for me
