Album: Face to Face (1992)

  • My friends it's not what you were famous for
    But now the whole world's watching you
    If we could help you then you know we would
    But we don't know just what to do
    Eye to eye our ways are not the same
    We never tried to understand
    But it could pass to each of us you name
    Then who's the one to take the blame

    Kiev, a candle with a flame
    You'll never be the same
    Our hearts go out to you
    And what you're going through
    They've thrown away your past
    Just like an empty glass
    Into the fire

    Someone wiser took the Steppe from you
    I'm sure with reason it was right
    But now it seems the whole world's blaming you
    And who's the one to put things right

    Kiev, a candle with a flame
    You'll never be the same
    Our hearts go out to you
    And what you're going through
    They've thrown away your past
    Just like an empty glass
    Into the fire

    Kiev, a candle with a flame
    You'll never be the same
    We all will understand
    You're really not to blame
    They've thrown away your past
    Just like an empty glass
    Into the fire Kiev Writer/s: LES HOLROYD
