Elton John - Belfast

Deep inside
my soul fights a war
I can´t explain
I can´t cross over any more
All I see are dirty faces
rain and wire
and common sense in pieces
But I try to see thruogh Irish eyes

Look outside
Summer´s lost and gone
It´s a long walk
on a street of right and wrong
In every inch of sadness
rocks and tanks
go hand in hand with madness
But I never saw a braver place

And it´s sad when they sing
and hollow ears listen
of smoking black roses
on a street of Belfast
And so say your lovers
from under the flowers
Every foot of this world
needs an inch of Belfast

Who´s to say
On whom heaven smiles
Our different ways
we try hard to recognize
No more enchanted evenings
the pubs are closed
and all the ghosts are leaving
But you´ll nveer let them shut you down

And it´s sad...

The enemy is not at home
a jealous green
streaks down this faulty diamond
No blooy boots or crucifix
can ever hope to split this emerald island
But I never saw a braver place
