Belfast '71

Allan Taylor
Lingua: Inglese



I have listened to the prophets and I've listened to their news
And I've seen their marble statues and I've heard the faithful sing
But do they live by what they're singing, would they turn the other cheek

Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can
Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can

In the churches, God is holy, and the people hide their hate
But on the roadside, He's forgotten, and God will have to wait
And how long can he suffer, and how long must he wait

Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can
Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can

And they're fighting one another with a prayer book in their hand
But with the weapons in the other, they'll never understand
And each side claim you was their God, but they take your name in vain

Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can
Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can

Stop and listen to the children, they cannot understand
They are puzzled by the fire and the marching of the band
They've longer to remember, so they will suffer most

Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can
Lead on, I'll follow, I'll find you if I can
