Runrig – Gabriel's Sword lyrics

In the middle of the schoolyard
Where the bombs have lain to rest
There's a child in the darkness waiting

But the answers in the history books
Are slowly burning down
And the words that spell forgiveness
Wear a thorny crown

Gabriel's sword will pierce me no more
I'll let my spirit soar so high
Sure as it all comes
From the father to the son
We've got to learn to speak the truth to fly
And it's a beautiful sky

There is much that I have seen
In this world they say is free
That would make it almost seem untrue

Many times I've walked the line
Longing for the other side
The only thing that changed my mind was you

Gabriel's sword will pierce me no more
I'll let my spirit soar so high
Sure as it all comes
From the father to the son
We've got to learn to speak the truth to fly
And it's a beautiful sky

Gabriel's sword will pierce me no more
I'll let my spirit soar so high
Sure as it all comes
From the father to the son
We've got to learn to speak the truth to fly
And it's a beautiful sky
