Sunday Bloody Sunday

 

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long,
How long must we sing
this song?
How long? Tonight we can be as one
Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has
 won?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mother's children brothers, sisters
 torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

How long,
How long must we sing this song?
How long? Tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your bloodshot eyes

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And it's true we are inmune
When fact is fiction and TV
 is reality
And today the millions cry

We eat and drink while tomorrow
they die
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On a Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

Seconds

 

It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye
It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, say bye bye where are you going to now?

Fall, rise and... Fall, rise and...
Lightning flashes across the sky
From east to west you do or die
Like a thief in the night
You see the world by candlelight

Fall, rise and... Fall, rise and...
In an apartment
On Times Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, hell to pay
A revolution every day
U.S.S.R., D.D.R., London, New York, Peking
It's the puppets, it's the puppets
Who pull the strings

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
It takes a second to say goodbye
Push the button and pull the plug, say goodbye

Fall, rise and... Fall, rise and...
They're doing the atomic bomb
Do they know where the dance comes from?
Yes they're doing the atomic bomb
They want you to sing along
Say goodbye, say goodbye

New Year's Day

 

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
And I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
I will be with you again
I will be with you again

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in
      black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
Newspapers say, it says it's true
     it's true
And we can break through
Though torn in two we can be one
I will begin again, I will begin again
Oh and maybe the time is right
Oh maybe tonight
I will be with you again
I will be with you again

And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars
     we wage
Though I want to be with you
To be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day

Like a Song

 

Like a song I have to sing
I sing it for you
Like the words I have to bring
I bring them to you
And in leather
Lace or chains
We stake our claim
Revolution once again
But I won't
I won't wear it on my sleeve
I can see through this expression,
And you know I don't believe
I'm too old to be told
Exactly who are you?
Tonight, tomorrow's too late

And we love to wear a badge,
     a uniform
And we love to fly a flag
But I won't let others live in hell
As we divide against each other
And we fight amongst ourselves
Too set in our ways to try to rearrange
Too right to be wrong,
in this rebel song
Let the bells ring out, is there
     nothing left?
Is honesty what you want?

A generation without name,
     ripped and torn
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain
Nothing at all
And if you can't help yourself
Well take a look around you
When others need your time

You say it's time to go it's your time
Angry words won't stop the fight
Two wrongs won't make it right
A new heart is what I need
Oh God, make it bleed
Is there nothing left?

Drowning Man

 

Take my hand
You know I'll be there
If you can I'll cross
The sky for your love
For I have promised for
To be with you tonight
And for the time that will come

Take my hand
You know I'll be there
If you can I'll cross
The sky for your love
And I understand
These winds and tides
This change of times
Won't drag you away
Hold on, hold on tightly
Hold on and don't let go
Of my love

The storms will pass
It won't be long now
The storms will pass
But my love last forever

And take my hand
You know I'll be there
If you can I'll cross the sky
For your love
Give you what I hold dear
Hold on, hold on tightly
Hold on, hold on tightly
Rise up, rise up, with wings
Like eagles you'll run, you'll run
You'll run and not grow weary

Take my hands, take my hand
Hold on, hold on tightly
Hold on, hold on tightly
This love lasts forever
This love lasts forever
Take my hand
Take my hand

The Refugee

 

War
She is a refugee, I see her face
I see her starin' back at me

War
She is a refugee, her momma say
One day she's gonna live in America

In the morning she is waiting
Waiting for her ship to sail
Sail away

Here
She's got a heart

War
Poppa go to war, he go to fight
But he don't know what for

War
Poppa go to war, her mama say
One day he's gonna come back from far away

Heartbeat
I can hear a heartbeat

In the evening, she is waiting
Waiting for her man tocome
And take her by the hand
And take her to this promised land

War
She is a pretty face
Born at the wrong time, and in the wrong
     place

War
She is a pretty face
Her mama say

One day she's gonna live in America
(Yeah, America)

War
She is a pretty face
Her mama say
One day she's gonna live in America

War
She is a refugee
She'll come and dance
She'll keep you company

War
She is a refugee
Her mama say
One day she's gonna live in America

Two Hearts Beat As One

 

I don't know
I don't know which side I'm on
I don't know my right from left
Or my right from wrong

They say I'm a fool
They say I'm nothing
But if I'm a fool for you
Oh, that is something

Two hearts beat as one
Two hearts beat as one
Two hearts

I can't stop to dance
This is my last chance
I said I can't stop to dance
Baby, this is my last chance

Two hearts beat as one
Two hearts beat as one
Two hearts

Beat on black, beat on white
Beat on everything, don't get it right
Beat on you, beat on me
Beat on love

I don't know how to say
What's got to be said
I don't know if it's black or white
There's others see it red

I don't get the answers right
I leave that to you
Is this love out of fashion
Or is it the time of year

Are these words distraction
To the words you want to hear
I try to spit it out
I try to explain
The way I feel
Oh yeah, two hearts

Red Light

I talk to you, ooh walkaway
You're still on the downbeat
you say you don't mind
But you get hurt scared
If you're running from yourself

I give you my love
I give you my love
Give you my love
And still you walkaway, well

It's your own late show
As you jump to the street below
But where can you go to leave yourself
     behind
Alone in the spotlight
Of this your own tragedy

Give my love
Love love love love
Love love love love
Love...

In the heart of the city, see me
Calling, calling, calling
See me calling
I spend my life just calling you

And I'll bring you
And I'll bring you
Night and day
I'll give you my love

Give you my love, give you my love
Give you my love, give you my love

Surrender

The city's alight
With lovers and lies
Bright blue eyes
The city is bright
Brighter than day tonight
Surrender, Surrender
Surrender, Surrender

Sadie said she couldn't
Work out what it was all about
And so she let go
Now Sadie's on the street
And the people she meets you know
She tried to be a good girl
And a good wife
Raise a good family
Lead a good life
It's not good enough
She got herself up on the 48th floor
Go to find out, find out
What she's living for
Surrender, Surrender
Surrender, Surrender

The city's a fire
A passionate flame
That knows me by name
The city's desire
To take me for more and more
It's in the street getting under my feet
It's in the air it's everywhere
     I look for you
It's in the things I do and say
If I want to live, I've got to die to myself
     someday

Papa sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my song

"40"

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing
Sting a new song
I will sing
Sting a new song

How long
To sing this song?
How long
To sing this song?

How long, how long
How long, how long
To sing this song?

Well he set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and hear

I will sing
Sting a new song
I will sing
Sting a new song

How long
To sing this song?
How long
To sing this song?
