Voices in the Field

  • Running through fields of flowers and smoke
    Leaving behind all that we've built
    The garden now in ashes and the roof is caving in
    A broken hour glass
    Blood running thin

    (For your life) come to my side
    (For your life) take me from here

    (For your life) open up your heart
    Let me hear your voice
    Let me hear you sing

    I wasn't on my way down to the marketplace
    Wasn't at the schoolyard
    Where our children play
    I wasn't in our home standing in the living room
    Or writing you a note that
    I'll be back soon

    (For your life) come to my side
    (For your life) take me from here

    (For your life) open up your heart
    Let me hear your voice
    Let me hear you sing

    Oh, let me hear you sing
    Let me hear you sing

    I don't recognize myself that much anymore
    Memories in my pockets and coins on the floor

    All I smell is smoke and all I ever see
    Is the look in your eyes
    The look in you eyes

    (For your life) you'll come to my side
    (For your life) take me from here

    (For your life) open up your heart
    (For your life) let me hear your voice

    (For your life) open up your heart
    (For your life) let me hear your voice

    Oh, let me hear you sing
    Let me hear you sing Writer/s: John Burns, Joseph G Burns
