Simple Minds Belfast Child songtekst

When my love said to meMeet me down by the gallow treeFor it’s sad news I bringAbout this old town and all that it’s offeringSome say troubles aboundSome day soon they’re gonna pull the old town downOne day we’ll return here,When the Belfast Child sings againBrothers sisters where are you nowAs I look for you right through the crowdAll my life here I’ve spentWith my faith in God the Church and the GovernmentBut there’s sadness aboundSome day soon they’re gonna pull the old town downOne day we’ll return here,When the Belfast Child sings againWhen the Belfast Child sings againSome come back Billy, won’t you come on homeCome back Mary, you’ve been away so longThe streets are empty, and your mother’s goneThe girls are crying, it’s been oh so longAnd your father’s calling, come on homeWon’t you come on home, won’t you come on homeCome back people, you’ve been gone a whileAnd the war is raging, in the Emerald IsleThat’s flesh and blood man, that’s flesh and bloodAll the girls are crying but all’s not lostThe streets are empty, the streets are coldWon’t you come on home, won’t you come on homeThe streets are emptyLife goes onOne day we’ll return hereWhen the Belfast Child sings again

When the Belfast Child sings again
