lyrics

I'LL HOLD YOUR HAND

There’s a chill into the air
The evening’s coming in
I’m sitting in my chair and I am dreaming
The world is running riot
But I’m looking to the hills
Where everything is quiet
And love is with me still

I’ll hold your hand until it’s over
I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder

There’s so much more is needed
But the stage is closing down
I don’t know how to feel it
The death of every clown
And all the burned-out bridges
Are charcoal in the rain
No point in going back there
Just to break your heart again

I’ll hold your hand until it’s over
I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder

The flowers are declining
In a mass of stalks and leaves
The seeds on breezes flying
Hoping someone still believes
I search the one who stayed with me
And take hold of that hand
To find the rock from underneath
And reach the promised land

I’ll hold your hand until it’s over
I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder
I’ll hold your hand, we’re getting older

The time has come to count it
And I’m looking to the hills
No-one there must doubt it
‘cos love is with me still
and I am looking higher
and listening for the bells
reaching out one final time
for one who loves me well

RUNNING DOWN THE ROAD

The river runs
The river runs
And I am running down the road

There’s the sun
I see it come
And blood is running down the road

I believe
I am free
And I am running down the road

I can see
What it’ll be
And blood is running down the road

The river runs
The river runs
And I am running down the road

No-one comes
But no-one comes
And blood is running down the road

And with a kiss
And all of this
I am running down the road

I am loved
I am loved
And blood is running down the road

The river runs
The river runs
And I am running down the road

There’s the sun
I see it come
And blood is running down the road

And I am running down the road
And blood is running down the road
And I am running down the road
running down the road
