Levellers – Bar Room Jury lyrics

Everybody knows the story
They've got the details, what the score is
But if you want the truth, girl
You may need more than a day

You need to move just a little closer
These walls have ears if you didn't know, girl
There're certain things that you need to know
Before you go on your way

It seems the world is a little busy
Selling lies on for a living
That in a blinking of an eye
The truth has slipped away

And the writings on the wall
To see

It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never easy, never kind
It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never one to mind

Moving on to the next installment
(In)
Case the bar room jury dies of boredom
The vultures are waiting
For the next meal of the day

Another tale that's sad and sorry
And another love that went so wrong
And all the inside guts and glory
That pushed it all along

It's hard to find the word to say
You just let the days go by, come what may
All the things that we should have done
Just happened anyway

And the writing written on the wall
For everyone to see

It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never easy, never kind
It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never one to mind

It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never easy, never kind
It lives on even though you think it's dead and gone
The legacy love leaves behinds was never one to mind
