  • A ghost of a mist was on the field
    The gray and the green together
    The noise of a distant farm machine
    Out of the first light came

    A tattered necklace of hedge end trees
    On the southern side of the hill
    Betrays where the border runs between
    Where Mary Dunoon's boy fell

    Easter here again, a time for the blind to see
    Easter, surely now, can all of your hearts be free

    Out of the port of Liverpool
    Bound for the North of Ireland
    The wash of the spray and horsetail waves
    The roll of the sea below

    And Easter here again, a time for the blind to see
    Easter, surely now, can all of your hearts be free

    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Oh you know

    What will you do
    Make a stone of your heart?
    Will you set things right
    When you tear them apart?
    Will you sleep at night
    With the plough and the stars alight?

    What will you do
    With the wire and the gun?
    That'll set things right
    When it's said and done?
    Will you sleep at night
    Is there so much love to hide?

    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Oh you know

    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Oh you know

    What will you do
    Make a stone of your heart?
    Will you set things right
    When you tear them apart?
    Will you sleep at night
    Is there so much love to hide?

    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tu
    Tu tu tu, tu tu tu tuWriter/s: MARK KELLY, IAN MOSLEY, STEVE ROTHERY, PETE TREWAVAS
