All the town’s asleep

16 November 06

The soldiers have gone, my child
The night may be quiet, but your dreams are wild
Wait for the sun, wave to the moon
Morning is coming, the owls sleep soon

There is hope, oh there is hope
For all who dream on below
There’ll be peace, yes there’ll be peace
When all the town’s asleep

Where are the church bells now?
Where is the farmer, where’s the plough?
What does the future hold
When all of our fathers could raise no gold?

There is hope, oh there is hope
For all who dream on below
There’ll be peace, yes there’ll be peace
When all the town’s asleep

If we have bread, my friend
Break it with me, we’ll mark the end
If we have wine, sweet wine
Drink to moonlight, drink to sunshine
