  • Vernon Maytone:
    "Speak the truth and speak it ever
    Cost it what it will,
    Cause he who hides the wrong he did
    Did the wrong thing still"

    Come back sweet St. Anne,
    Come love me again,
    Cause I broke again, yeah I broken man.
    And down on St. Andrew, I'll buy it back from you
    But you ain't no lover, no you're just a pusher
    And I've been down to St. Andrew
    To pay for my sins on you
    Love come save me, love come save me soon.

    Now I've sung midnight choirs
    With baseheads, drunks, and liars
    But there's never fire
    No we never get higher
    So lines I've rocked and rolled
    Amongst those midnight souls
    That we're only stealing
    Yeah stealing for feeling

    And I've been down to St. Andrew
    To pay for my sins on you
    Love come save me, love come save me soon.
    Ya, love come save me soon.
    Love come save me soon.
    Ya, love come save me, love come save me soon.

    One day my time will end
    And who I've been, I've been
    And the bells they are ringing
    And the band it is marching, marching, marching

    And I've been down to St. Andrew
    To pay for my sins on you
    Love come save me, love come save me soon.
    Ya, love come save me soon.
    Ya, love come save me soon.
    Ya, love come save me, love come save me soon.
    Soon. Writer/s: Carl Pengelly, Eon Sinclair, Jay Malinowski
