Sunday Bloody Sunday

Lyrics

playThis song is not a rebel song,
playThis song is 'Sunday Bloody Sunday

playI can't believe the news today
playOh, I can't close my eyes
playAnd make it go away

playHow long...
playHow long must we sing this song
playHow long, how long...
play'cause tonight...we can be as one
playTonight...

playBroken bottles under children's feet
playBodies strewn across the dead end street
playBut I won't heed the battle call
playIt puts my back up
playPuts my back up against the wall

playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday

playAnd the battle's just begun
playThere's many lost, but tell me who has won
playThe trench is dug within our hearts
playAnd mothers, children, brothers, sisters
playTorn apart

playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday

playHow long...
playHow long must we sing this song
playHow long, how long...
play'cause tonight...we can be as one
playTonight..
playTonight..
playTonight.., Tonight.., Tonight..

playWipe your tears away
playWipe your tears away
playWipe your blood shot eyes

playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday
playSunday, Bloody Sunday

playAnd it's true we are immune
playWhen fact is fiction and TV reality
playAnd today the millions cry
playWe eat and drink while tomorrow they die

play(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

playThe real battle just begun
playTo claim the victory Jesus won
playOn...

playSunday Bloody Sunday
playSunday Bloody Sunday
