Streets Of Glory

Album: Fall To Grace (2012)
  • There's no angels in the sea
    We both lend its own
    We're in between
    You can't teach 'cause you never learn
    There's nothing left
    There's no return

    The more you talk the less it means
    What I want's not what I need
    While with flesh and blood I still bleed
    I know you're bad for me

    But baby on the streets of glory
    I see you on the streets of glory

    It may hurt of grief but it's worse to hold your hand
    The shattered glass it falls upon where you stand
    I will be your momento mori
    While you hide behind your made up story

    The more you talk the less it means
    What I want's not what I need
    While with flesh and blood and I still bleed
    I know you're bad for me

    But baby on the streets of glory
    I see you on the streets of glory

    Maybe one day
    I see you on those streets
    All those glittering streets
    Streets of glory
    And you take my hand
    Take me down to the river
    Wash my sins away
    And you come with me
    Won't you take my hand
    Meet me on the streets of glory
    See you on the streets of glory Writer/s: STEPHEN PAUL ROBSON, PALOMA FAITH, WAYNE HECTOR
