lyrics

Abide with me my love and let me set the scene
I'm watching celluloid of lives we couldn't dream
There they are in black and white
Let me know the colour of their hair

Abide with us a while and let us meet their eyes
A frozen eulogy of long forgotten lives
Let us paint the shadows in
Let us know the colour of their hair

Show me one more wall
Show me one more stream
Show me one more tree but make it evergreen
Evergreen

I see a lover there, a mother and a child
I know a war will come and take away their lives
Maybe we've the same to come
Maybe there'll be horror in our lives

Show me one more wall
Show me one more stream
Show me one more tree but make it evergreen
Evergreen

Come take my hand
Come take my hand
Over these walls, over these walls, over these walls
They've seen it all
They've seen it all
Over these walls, over these walls, over these walls
Come take my hand

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
