This Sullen Welsh Heart

Album: Rewind The Film (2013)
  • I don't want my children to grow up like me
    It's just so destroying, it's a mocking disease
    A wasting disease

    I don't want my children to grow up like me
    It's just so destroying, it's a mocking disease
    A wasting disease

    Some times I wake up with love still alive
    I just want to go to sleep, but I can't, I close my eyes
    I can't, I close my eyes

    I can't fight this war any more
    Time to surrender, time to move on
    So line up the firing squads, kiss goodbye to what you want
    Go with the flow, go home
    You can keep on struggling when you're alone
    When you're alone
    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily

    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily
    The battle easily

    The act of creation saves us from despair
    A phrase that keeps repeating in my head
    In my head

    It's not enough to succeed others must fail
    My unhappy mantra I wish I could escape
    I wish I could escape

    I can't fight this war any more
    Time to surrender, time to move on
    So line up the firing squads, kiss goodbye to what you want
    Go with the flow, go home
    You can keep on struggling when you're alone
    When you're alone
    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily

    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily
    The battle easily

    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily
    The battle easily

    This sullen Welsh heart
    It won't leave, it won't give up
    The hating half of me
    Has won the battle easily
    The battle easily Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
