lyrics

here a voice was raised
here a song was sang in the middle of the night

you didn't shoot me down
though i'm on the ground
there is choice in this life though sometimes that's forgotten

and in school we are taught
to obey our desires but they lead us astray

can we chase our own dreams
can we break from the liar
there are clouds in the sky but the rain isn't coming.

but the children are not listening to the words sung my the churchyard chorus

and it's true we've neglected to learn from the faults of the ones who came before us


I have laughed with you,
we have smiled and sang. does that make this alright?

my emotions roar
they're beyond my control
is there choice in this life? oh it seems i've forgotten

take the sextant of hope
we must measure our bearings for we mustn't get lost

now the sunset is red
let the sailor rejoice
there are clouds in the sky but the storm isn't coming

but the children are not listening to the words sung my the churchyard chorus

and it's true we've neglected to learn from the faults of the ones who came before us

Let us raise our voice
let us sing our song
there is light that breaks the night

we can chase our own dreams
we can break from the liar
there are clouds in the sky but the storm isn't coming.
