Song Lyrics

Hmm…

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
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
I won’t heed the battle call
Puts my back up, my back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

And this battle’s just begun,
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won
Trenches 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

The Edge, go

Have you had enough?
Have you had enough of reading on the papers, of seeing the news?
Have you had enough of Beirut?
Have you had enough of Nicaragua?
Of Belfast?
Then, after me, sing

No more…sing
No more
No more
No war
No more
No more
No more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your blood-shot eyes / Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away / Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
I’m so sick of it
Woo

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

The real battle yet begun / Sunday bloody Sunday
Claiming the victory till Jesus comes / Sunday bloody Sunday
On

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
