Istanbul

Album: World Peace Is None of Your Business (2014)
  • When he first cried his mother died
    I had tried to be his guide
    When he was born I was too young
    The father searches for the son
    In Istanbul, give him back to me
    Oh Istanbul, give me back my brown-eyed son

    Moonlight jumping through the trees
    Sunken eyes avoiding me,
    From dawn to dusk, the hunt is on,
    The father searches for the son
    In Istanbul, give him back to me
    In Istanbul give me back my brown-eyed son

    On secret streets in disbelief
    Little shadow shows the lead
    Prostitutes, stylish and glum
    In amongst them you are one

    Oh, what have I done?!

    Rolling breathless off the tongue
    The vicious street gang slang
    I lean into a box of pine
    Identify the kid as mine Writer/s: STEVEN MORRISSEY, MARTIN JAMES BOORER
