Thousand Year Prayer Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Here we all are at the end
Of this century of beauty and loss
Greedily ate what you gave us
The rest we tossed

We've trapped all your rivers, paved every pass
Pulled out your sky till we caused it to rip
But you've got Jimi Hendrix
So let's call it an even split

I've met a girl who has turned
My whole world upside down
The stars I once stretched for
Now, litter the ground

Cursed by too little lies
And too much belief
In the strength of another man's words
But I've got a girl, thank you, Lord

Here we all are at the start
Of another thousand year
All those love stories
Yet to be told

Ours is this river
Asleep at our feet
Blessed by this wet autumn day
Here we all are
