"The Pink and the Lily" as written by and Tom Gilbert Sandi Thom....
Street lights ablaze and the air is so dry
There’s a cat in my bucket smoke covers the sky
And the sound of the traffic keeps me from my dreams
Like one million soldiers just shuffled their feet

The heat of the night is one that I can’t escape
So I listen to the underground rumble and shake
There’s something so beautiful being alive
When your young wild and free
And just trying to survive.

So hold me I believe every word that you told me
And every last line that you sold me
I’ll love you for the rest of my life
Take me turn me around and you’ll make me
Follow the footsteps you gave me
In the Pink and the Lily tonight.

Freedoms a luxury taken in vain
It’s hard to find justice and fight for a change
Cos there’s so many people that cannot be heard
Their thoughts and their feelings just kicked to the curb

I may not be old and I may not be wise
But I call upon those with a chance in this life
Climb to the rooftops and open your eyes
Cos your young wild and free and just trying to survive.

So hold me I believe every word that you told me
And every last line that you sold me
I’ll love you for the rest of my life
Take me turn me around and you’ll make me
Follow the footsteps you gave me
In the Pink and the Lily tonight.
Follow the footsteps you gave me
In the Pink and the Lily tonight.
Follow the footsteps you gave me
In the Pink and the Lily tonight.
