I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Cause tonight, we can be as one, tonight

Broken bottles under childrens feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
but i wont heed the battle call
It puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battles just begun
Many battles, but tell me who has one?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

How long, how long must we sing this sing
How long, how long
Tonight, we can be as one, tonight

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away

Wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

    General Commenti think U2 did a similar song, this is just a er..shorter version (i think they cut a verse out). It basically highlights the pointlessness of fighting in a war, and that there is no solution to mindless bloodshed...

    General CommentU2 did a similar song?

    This IS a U2 cover.

    And anyway, to cut a long story short, club 161 on the corner of I think it's High street and Chappel street Prahran, get fucked you pricks.

    General CommentActually its about a protest march in Derry that resulted in the British army killing 13 unarmed men and wounding 14 others.

    General CommentI've only heard a small sample of this version and it seems pretty dead on, soundwise, to U2's original version.

    General CommentNote of advice: If you HAVEN'T for some reason, listened to TLE version of Sunday Bloody Sunday, get it now! Somehow... It's brilliant, riffs are awesome, Chris's voice is brilliant, it's a great cover, and i definately recommend it. That, and TLE overall. Classic.

    General Commenti have to admit, i like tle's version than u2's. mainly coz i love tle. but chris's voice is amazing in this one. the first time i heard it i had just seen the news and all the crap about war and a sunday. it was just too perfect. every sunday, i listen to it all the time.
