Through the barricades

Mother doesn’t know where love has gone

She says it must be youth

That keeps us feeeling strong

See it in her face, that’s turned to ice

And when she smiles she shows

The lines of sacrifice

And now I know what they’re saying

When the sun begins to fade

And we made our love on wasteland

And through the barricades

 

Father made my history

He fought for what he thought

Would set us somehow free

He tought me what to say in school

I learned off by heart

But now that’s torn in two

 

And now I know what they’re saying

In the music of the parade

We made our love on wasteland

And through the barricades

Born on different sides of life

We feel the same

And feel all of this strife

So come to me when I’m asleep

We’ll cross the line

And dance upon the street

And now I know what they’re saying

When the drums begin to fade

We made our love on wasteland

And through the barricades

 

Oh, turn around and I’ll be there

There’s a scar through my heart

But I’ll bare it again

I thought? we were the human race

But we were just another border-line-case

And the stars reach down and tell us

That there’s always one escape

 

I don’t know where love has gone

And in this trouble land

Desperation keep us strong

Fridays child is full of soul

With nothing left to lose

There’s everything to go

 

And now I know what they’re are saying

It’s a terrible beauty we’ve made

So we make our love on? wasteland

And through the barricades

Now I know what they’re are saying

As hearts go to their graves

We made our love on? wasteland

And through the barricades.
