Runrig – Amazing Things lyrics

White clouds cover
The whole of the earth
Concorde flies
Through the skies to the States
Lifetimes in memory, flesh being born
But this is the age of invisible dawn
And the man from the government
Says show me a sign
The mood of the moment
Says have a good time
Through stench and starvation,
Night never falls
There's flies on the skeletons,
Shapes on the wall

As I draw my latest breath
Amazing things are done on earth

And the masters of flattery
Colour the trees
They walk on the oceans,
Put the town under siege
The king of humanity sleeps in despair
Walking out in the morning
With hands in the air
There's zealots in anger,
Divine extremes
Emotional half-lives,
Disposable dreams
Rumours of cease-fire
Inherit the streets
This is the war
Of the pure and the meek

As I draw my latest breath
Amazing things are done on earth

These days are overgrown in truth
Under the sun that's nothing new

But flowers still open,
Flowers still close
Re-arranged molecules,
Miracle cures
And I can still love you,
Call you my own
Till the blooms turn to doubt,
Till the angels come home

As I draw my latest breath
Amazing things are done on earth
