One afternoon I heard a sound coming
(Come down)
And when it came it took a piece of my away
(Come down)

So coming down, coming down, coming down
There's a sound, there's a sound, coming down
And in the night, in the night at first light
Come the bells of 59

Now in my soul is a song I sing out
(Sing out)
And to the beat I can feel my heart beat
And now I breathe, now I breathe, I can breathe
(Breathe out)

So coming down, coming down, coming down
There's a sound, there's a sound, coming down
And in the night, in the night at first light
Come the bells of 59

If one day I cannot make it home,
Then let me go
(Let go)
And in my bones I can feel the bells low
Swinging low through my soul
(Swing low)

So coming down, coming down, coming down
There's a sound, there's a sound, coming down
And in the night, in the night at first light
Come the bells of 59

Come the bells of 59

    General CommentI think these guys are kinda political. I wish someone who knew what this was about would say. It's gotta be a reference to the year 1959. I've looked up revolutions in 1959 but I can't find anything obvious. Does anyone know?
