The Night Sky

One day I will be
Back in our old street
Safe from the noise that's
Falling around me
And we'll release this town from the people
Who are trying to knock it down
And then only city lights will brighten the night sky
And there will be no sound
Open the bars and
Open the markets
Open the banks and
Open the churches
And we'll release this town from the people
Who are trying to knock it down
And then only city lights will brighten the night sky
And there will be no sound
We've been cowering so long
Oh what I would give I ask so little
Oh what I would give
To stand at the bus stop
Or browse in a bookshop
To sleep and always be still
And we'll release this town from the people
Who are trying to knock it down
And then only city lights will brighten the night sky
And i will be set free from the people
Who are trying to bury me
And then only fireworks will light the sky at night
For all the world can see
(Keane)
