Come to me
Come lie beside me
Oh don't deny me
Your love


Make sense of me
Walk through my doorway
Don't hide in the hallway
Oh love...step over


I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down


In the name of whiskey
In the name of song
You didn't look back
You didn't belong


In the name of reason
In the name of hope
In the name of religion
In the name of dope


In the name of freedom
You drifted away
To see the sun shining
On someone else's day


In the name of United and the BBC
In the name of Georgie Best and LSD


In the name of a father
And his wife the spirit
You said you did not
They said you did it


In the name of justice
In the name of fun
In the name of the father
In the name of the son


Call to me
No one is listening
I'm waiting to hear from you love


Stay with me
It's cold in the ground
But there's peace in the sound
Of the white and the black
Spilling over


I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down
