Children be still,

Lace curtains drawn,
For self respect
Ripped down and torn
Now the neighbours will never forget
Don't let them forget

Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still

Crack in the pain
The gap between
Those who remain
Those who have been
I'm cracked, I'm scratched
Bloody but one thing
One thing stays the same

Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still
Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still

Children be still
Children be still

Birthday present
From the rag & bone shop
A heart that works to well
A heart that won't stop
Beating
But sometimes I wish it would stop

Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still
Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still
Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still
Time get hard then get harder still
I will be still

Children be still
Children be still
Children be still
