lyrics

Sacré Coeur

I’ve been walking for days,
These storied streets, 
Where the buildings have their say,
Sacré Coeur in the dying winter sun,
It’s picture postcard perfect,
but with soldiers and guns,

Is this what our little world has become?
Is this what our little world has become?

I read it in a magazine,
I read it in a book,
Living is the leading cause of dying,
I’ll keep trying till I’m took.
I will keep trying to the soldiers come,
I will keep trying, till my work is done.

Is this what our little world has become?
Is this what our little world has become?

I feel my heart beating in my chest,
My lungs and the air around me collaborating on this breath,
Come on people we are unbeaten yet,
I’ll give you everything I have left.

I’ve been walking for weeks,
Searching for your story,
Seeping up now through my feet.
Times Square, New Year’s Eve, Me and You,
She says, “It’s just like on the big screen,”
“But with snipers on the roof”

Is this what our little world has become?
Is this what our little world has become?

I feel my heart beating in my chest,
My lungs and the air around me collaborating on this breath,
Come on people we are unbeaten yet,
I’ll give you everything I have left,
Come on people we are unbeaten yet,
I’ll give you everything I have left.

I feel my heart beating in my chest.
