Sunday Bloody Sunday

Lyrics

play This song is not a rebel song,
play This song is 'Sunday Bloody Sunday

play I can't believe the news today
play Oh, I can't close my eyes
play And make it go away

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

play Broken bottles under children's feet
play Bodies strewn across the dead end street
play But I won't heed the battle call
play It puts my back up
play Puts my back up against the wall

play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday

play And the battle's just begun
play There's many lost, but tell me who has won
play The trench is dug within our hearts
play And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
play Torn apart

play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday

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

play Wipe your tears away
play Wipe your tears away
play Wipe your blood shot eyes

play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday
play Sunday, Bloody Sunday

play And it's true we are immune
play When fact is fiction and TV reality
play And today the millions cry
play We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

play (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

play The real battle just begun
play To claim the victory Jesus won
play On...

play Sunday Bloody Sunday
play Sunday Bloody Sunday
