Cat Stevens - Ruins Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Its so quiet in the ruins walking though the old town
  • Stones crumbling under my feet I see smoke for miles around
  • Oh its enough to make you weep, all that remains of the main street
  • Up in the park on sunday, dogs chasing and the children played
  • Old man with his head down, cant see nothing more around...no
  • But he remembers how it used to be, back in the old days,
  • So nice to see you coming back in this town again
  • Its nice to see a friendly face come peeping through having tea
  • In the afternoon, so nice to see you coming back in this town again...
  • Ah but its all changed winter turned on a man
  • Came down on day when no-one was looking and it
  • Stole away the land, people running scared, losing hands
  • Dodging shadows of falling sand, buildings standing like empty shells
  • And nobody...helping no-one else
  • Young child with his hands high, aint able to see no reason why...no
  • But he remembers how it used to be, back in the old days,
  • So nice to see you coming back in this town again
  • Its nice to see a friendly face come peeping through
  • Youd better know what youre going through now
  • You came back here to find your home is a black horizon
  • That you dont recognize, evil destruction has taken everything
  • Youd better walk on the side while youre still walking
  • Just keep on walking on down the street keep your distance
  • From the people you meet. oh lord and youd better watch your eyes
  • cause if smoke gets in them, baby you wont rise again.
  • Wheres it leading to freedom at what cost
  • People needing more and more and its all getting lost
  • I want back, I want back
  • Back to the time when the earth was green
  • And there was no high walls and the sea was clean
  • Dont stop that sun to shine, its not yours or mine...no.
