St. Adelaide

 

Lyrics/Music – David Storey – 2014 – Socan

There’s blood on the floor at city hall tonight.
The mayor and the press are fighting over money lies and pride.
You can hear the racket way out on the east side.
Where there’s kids running round with guns and death behind their eyes.

But there’s a candle burning In the Church of Saint Adelaide.
The lost and sick have washed up, they’re looking for a break.
They’re holding hands and singing songs of Love and hope and faith.
The candles are burn in Saint Adelaide

The moneys all north of Bloor and it ain’t trickling down.
The cabbies down on parliament are just barely holding ground.
The free way is crumbling, it’s hard to get around.
The shadows from those tall dark towers spread all over town.

But there’s a candle burning In the Church of Saint Adelaide.
The lost and sick have washed up, they’re looking for a break.
They’re holding hands and singing songs of Love and hope and faith.
The candles are burn in Saint Adelaide

Money sings and money laughs and money wants it all
Money knows just where to land after we take the fall
So here we sit from different worlds your body marked in ink.
Me I’m fed and scrubbed and uneasy as I ask you what you think.
Proud and sad you look at me voice soft as a dove.
You say those who have been forgiven know a lot about love.

But there’s a candle burning In the Church of Saint Adelaide.
The lost and sick have washed up, they’re looking for a break.
They’re holding hands and singing songs of Love and hope and faith.
The candles are burn in Saint Adelaide
