Movement Iii - Crypt Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Shanty
And so it was that I had grown
Into a youth uncertain, thrown
Amongst the lions and the lambs.
To pass the time we watched the children dance.

I used to come here when this place was a crypt.
Now the music plays.
Oh don't you sometimes wish they'd stick to the script
As the local preacher says.

Rain from heaven will blessings bring,
Behold the harvest grown. r
Ian from heaven falls down on you,
But me, I feel alone.

Preacher (sympathetically)
Alone.

Shanty
Alone.

Preacher
If they won't come to worship
God in a church
Something must be done.
We have to instigate a nationwide search
For a way to make it fun.
Rain from heaven will blessings bring,
Behold the harvest grown.

Shanty and preacher
Rain from heaven falls down on you,

Shanty
But me, I feel alone.
Alone.

Here now,
What am I doing here now?
Hear me,
Why do you never hear me?
Why do you never hear me?

Mary dee (as half-ghost)
I'll always be here.
I'll never leave you.
I'll always be in your mind.
Dreams of the future,
Ghosts of the past left behind.

Women's chorus
(ah)

Shanty
Thought I had a vision
Lying in a graveyard,
Thought I heard a melody inside.
Could it be the future,
Speaking with the voice of those who died?

Thought I saw a kingdom,
Happiness and laughter,
Somewhere for an innocent to play.
Is there any justice?
Do these things still happen in this way?

Mary dee
Don't tell him no,
It isn't fair.
For he was told by those who know
There was love everywhere.

Shanty
Love everywhere.

Mary dee
Now's the time to tell him,
While his mother's crying.
Break it to him gently as she weeps.
Let him know his father
Will be well looked after, where he sleeps.

Chorus (ghosts)
He's sleeping amongst us.
He's in our dreams.
Don't worry. he's with us now.

Shanty
Don't say it's so,
It isn't fair.
For I was told by those who know
There was love everywhere.

Alone.
