Crouch Hill

by The Ragged Flags

/
1.
The city at sunset, red on the boughs Leaving the house but it’s less empty now Down the old train line, the years talk to me We walk in the place where the tracks used to be Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Now I cannot reach you, whatever I say Standing so close but you’re miles away You stop and you turn as the waterworks start And holding my hand kick a hole in my heart Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Sat on the platform, I’m coming undone As we wait for a train that we know never comes Rising beside me, one look and you’re gone The green man that grows in the wall watching on Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill The city at sunset, gold on the glass Shattered and broken, but this too shall pass The end of the world’s just the end of the day Let’s see what tomorrow is bringing my way Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill Up on Crouch Hill, up on Crouch Hill
