The Saints Are Coming

Album: Scared To Dance (1978)
Charted: 48
  • I cried to my daddy on the telephone
    how long now
    Until the clouds unroll and you come home
    the line went
    But the shadows still remain since your descent
    your descent

    The saints are coming, the saints are coming
    I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply

    A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief
    How long now
    Until a weather change condemns belief
    The stone says
    This paternal guide once had his day
    Once had his day Writer/s: Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson
