Song Lyrics

This is a song
A song I hope one day never to have to sing again

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes, make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one
Tonight

Broken bottles under children’s feet
And bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up, my back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
And this battle’s yet begun
There’s many lost but tell me, who has won?
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday / (1-2-3-4)

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one, tonight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight
Edge, go

How are you?
You heard of Amnesty International?
They’ve heard of you
And they know…they know all about you
Sing this…for Belfast, for Derry
For Beirut, for Nicaragua
After me, sing

No more, sing
No more
no more
no war
No more…no war, no more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your bloodshot eyes / Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away / Sunday bloody Sunday

Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
Shh
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
We’re so sick of it!

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

The real battle yet begun / Sunday bloody Sunday
We’ll claim the victory for Jesus’ sons, yeah / Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Thank you
(Marilyn)

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday…day
