Marc Meyers – Newtown Rain lyrics

I look to the heavens on this cold dark night
The stars are shining their winter’s light
I see broken soldiers with their fettered hearts
Signaling across the world for the train to start.

The conductor in horror sees his charges tonight
In silence he weeps into eternal night
Carrying the innocence of man today
The iron horse of souls goes on its way.

Sleep in peace our little ones
Your heroes are with you now
Rest your hearts our darling ones
You're in a dream world now.

All over the world we weep tonight
Our grief should never be known
Your train passes slowly into heavenly light
The specter of soldiers now gone.

We’re all part of Newtown now
Our tears fill in vain
Blood on our hands all over this land
Denizens doomed to walk in the Newtown rain.

A demon soul with the burnt out eyes
Swept in from a dark place our own
This cloud of pain with its deserted smile
Shook down the sun from the Newtown skies.

You who gave your lives for love
Your duty bravely shown
You hugged our babies, to keep them safe
Are now the heroes in the choir’s song.

All over the world it rains our tears
For 26 souls who’ve left us here
And sleep with the angels who gaze upon
The Newtown rain’s mournful song.

Sleep in peace our little ones
Your heroes are with you now
Rest your hearts our darling ones
You’re in a dream world now.

Our Mothers and Fathers on the Hill
If they could feel our pain
They hold the power all over this land
To finally put a stop to the Newtown rain.
