Simple Minds - Belfast Child - 2001 Digital Remaster Lyrics

When my love said to me
Meet me down by the gallow tree
For it's sad news I bring
About this old town and all that it's offering
Some say troubles abound
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down

One day we'll return here
When the Belfast Child sings again

Brothers, sisters, where are you now?
As I look for you right through the crowd
All my life here I've spent
With my faith in God the Church and the Government
Some say troubles abound
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down

One day we'll return here
When the Belfast child sings again
When the Belfast child sings again

So come back Billy, won't you come on home?
Come back Mary, you've been away so long
The streets are empty, and your mother's gone
The girls are crying, it's been, oh, so long
And your father's calling, come on home
Won't you come on home? Come on home

Come back people, you've been gone a while
And the war is raging, through the Emerald Isle
That's flesh and blood man, that's flesh and blood
All the girls are crying but all's not lost

The streets are empty, the streets are cold
Won't you come on home? Come on home

The streets are empty
Life goes on

One day we'll return here
When the Belfast child sings again
When the Belfast child sings again
