Children be still,
Children,
Lace curtains drawn,
For self respect
Ripped down and torn
Now the neighbours will never forget
Don't let them forget
Time gets hard, men get harder still
Still
A crack in the pane
The gab between
Those who remain
And those who have been
I am cracked, I'm scratched
But you were just one thing
One thing stays the same

Time gets hard, men get harder still
I will be still
I will be still
Time gets hard, men get harder still
Harder still

Children
Time gets hard, men get harder still

Birthday present
From the rag and bone shop
A heart that works too well
A heart that won't stop
Beating
Though sometimes I wish it would stop
Stop

Time gets hard, men get harder still
I will be still
Time gets hard, men get harder still
Harder still
Be still
Harder still
Time gets hard, men get harder still
Harder still
Time gets hard, men get harder still
Harder still
Children
Harder
Still
Children
Harder
Still
I will be still
