Nazareth – Beggar's Day lyrics

If this is heaven, then I'm in hell
If trust is misfortune, then wish me well

While I think of sadness baby
Your light shines through, your light shines through
Your light shines through


Because it's beggars day
Because it's beggars day
Because it's beggars day

I've lost control of my darker side
A murder for free and my whore steals away with it
And I have crossed myself in anger
All your mercy can't save me, all your mercy can't save me
All your mercy can't save me

Because it's beggars day
Because it's beggars day
Because it's beggars day


It's beggars day
You know it's beggars day
Because it's beggars day

See this love, I store for you
We have our dealings, but our feelins are true

Repeat *

Chorus (2x)
