LIVERPOOL SORROW

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Our thoughts and prayers bind through the years
And tears as silver tears on tears
My heart will burn like fever still
Tho sorrow’s burden fastens me

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Warm rolling waves of Mersey hear
The voice of children cry to ye
Our golden dreams our golden skies
Have flown the nest for brighter skies

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oh sorrows known and bitter taste
Of times now lost of times laid waste
The darkness cuts and blinds the light
And glory hides her face tonight

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 What bloody slaughter butchered we
Whose hearts follow Anfield faithfully
There’s no one here to dry our tears
And no one here to soothe our fears

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A father’s love Christ knows I crave
A word of love a warm embrace
For now there’s silence bound in sleep
For now there’s silence, yet no peace.

Notes

inspired by the poem “Unseen Sorrow” by B Sands.
