The mourners of St Paul



Let the sky grow dark
With a heavy heart
Let the funeral start x2

Suddenly it seemed
Love is just a dream
On a TV screen
In a magazine

Mother please hold on
Brother please be strong
Let me play this song
We all sang along
I see trees are green, red roses to, scattered out for you
On a grey stone
Im 12 years over I can’t stay sober
And there’s a bluebird in my heart
That’s caged and it can’t sing
So fill your bloodlines
Open up buttons kid this wont sting
It’s like a slowing of your senses just might solve something
Let the mourners of St Paul speak up the rain

Suddenly it seams
Im settled in my own routines
I know the years gone
I still sing the same sad song
So when the snow has finally cleared
Im gonna spin away from here
And wake my father’s bones
And drag his ghost into the roads

This house could hold nothing but melodies
So slumber such miserable memories
So Just rule out the simplest kind
Let’s drink some water he left behind


Suddenly it seams
Im settled in my own routines
I know the years gone
I still sing the same sad song
Let the sky grow dark
With a heavy heart
Let the funeral start x2

    General CommentOk, the lyrics on here are a bit wrong, here are some corrections! My corrections are in CAPITALS:

    Mourners of St Paul's


    Let the sky grow dark,
    With a heavy heart,
    Let the funeral start,
    Let the funeral start.

    Suddenly it seemed,
    Love WAS just a dream,
    On a TV screen,
    In a magazine.

    Mother please hold on,
    Brother please be strong,
    YEAH, THEY play this song,
    We all sang along,

    I see trees OF green,
    Red roses too,
    Scattered out for you,
    On a grey stone TOMB.

    Im 12 years OLDER, I can’t stay sober,
    And there’s a bluebird in my heart that’s caged and it can’t sing,
    So fill your bloodlines UP WITH BOURBON KID AND THIS WON'T STING,
    It’s like the slowing of your senses just might solve something,
    Let the mourners of St Paul LEAK? up the rain. (I'm not too sure, but it sounds like leak)

    Suddenly it seams,
    Im settled in my own routines,
    ANOTHER YEAR HAS GONE,
    I still sing the same sad song.

    So when the snow has finally cleared,
    Im gonna SWIM away from here,
    And wake my father’s bones,
    And drag his ghost into the ROAD.

    This house could hold nothing but MELODY,
    So SOMBRE, such miserable MEMORY,
    So Just LOVE OF THE SIMPLEST KIND,
    Let’s drink TO ALL THAT WE'VE LEFT BEHIND

    LET THE FUNERAL START,
    LET THE FUNERAL START,
    LET THE FUNERAL START,
    LET THE FUNERAL START.

    Suddenly it seams,
    Im settled in my own routines,
    ANOTHER YEAR HAS GONE,
    I still sing the same sad song,
    Let the sky grow dark,
    With a heavy heart,
    Let the funeral start,
    Let the funeral start.

    General CommentNo no no! you've both got it wrong!

    The lyrics are as follows!

    Let the sky grow dark
    With a heavy heart
    Let the funeral start
    Let the funeral start

    Suddenly it seemed
    Love is just a dream
    On a TV screen
    In a magazine

    Mother please hold on
    Brother please be strong
    Yeah they play this song
    We all sang along
    I see trees of green, red roses too, scattered out for you
    On a grave stone
    I’m 12 years older I can’t stay sober
    And there’s a bluebird in my heart
    That’s caged and it can’t sing
    So fill your bloodlines up with bourbon kid this won’t sting
    It’s like a slowing of your senses just might solve something
    Let the mourners of St Pauls lead the parade

    Suddenly it seams
    I’m settled in my old routines
    Another year has gone
    I still sing the same sad song
    So when the snow has finally cleared
    I’m gonna swim away from here
    And wake my father’s bones
    And drag his ghost into the road

    This house could hold nothing but melodies
    So sombre, such miserable memories
    Three cheers for love of the simplest kind
    Let’s drink to all that he left behind


    Suddenly it seams
    I’m settled in my old routines
    Another year has gone
    I still sing the same sad song
    Let the sky grow dark
    With a heavy heart
    Let the funeral start
    Let the funeral start
