Big Big Train - Summoned By Bells Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Took a little time
  • to find the past
  • to walk the roads
  • we used to know
  • that lead us home.
  • Houses in terraced rows
  • that crowd around
  • the railway yard,
  • just sidings now,
  • all overgrown.
  • Above the high fields
  • clouds are grey and gold;
  • it’s as good a place as anywhere.
  • War came
  • and fires were seen
  • from 30 miles away;
  • a city burned,
  • they wait in line,
  • out in the high fields,
  • summoned by bells,
  • church; school; factory; home.
  • Along the London Road
  • across the park at Spinney Hill,
  • sledging in the snow,
  • we had our scrapes and our fights,
  • it was part of the deal.
  • Time moved quickly then
  • things were changing all around,
  • the world came
  • to this small world,
  • over the hillsides and rooftops,
  • different stories were heard.
  • We moved on
  • found a new place,
  • we remembered the days
  • of our younger lives,
  • we moved on.
  • Long years pass
  • we walk the roads
  • we used to know,
  • carried with the
  • rain that falls.
  • A stone’s throw from the line
  • some of the old places survive,
  • a golden thread in time,
  • a stream running down from the hills
  • into the heart of the high fields.
  • So come on now,
  • you know it’s alright,
  • those were the days of our younger lives.
  • Early evening, midweek
  • in a market town,
  • walking down those
  • same old roads
  • we know.
