Hearts On Fire
All around the world are young men,
Having songs of freedom sung them,
Every dog of war will have his day,
For the pride of all the Nations,
Are standing at their stations,
Smiling as they wave their lives away.
Hearts on fire, hearts on fire,
Hearts on fire, burning bright.
In the land of Davy Crockett,
They have built themselves a rocket,
That will bring a brand new morning, some day soon,
While in Africa they're crying,
For the want of food they're dying,
While others walk around upon the moon.
In a blind deserted alley,
In the broken Rhonda valley,
A man is sadly searching for his soul,
But his eyes were unforgiving,
When they took away his living,
His pride was buried deep beneath the coal.
As the Belfast evening thunders,
The Lord looks down and wonders,
Will my children ever live as one,
From the Church he hears them calling,
And as bitter tears are falling,
For this He said " I gave my only Son"
