ten years in the

A 
play

You’ve hung up your great coat and you’ve laid down your gun

You know the war you fought in wasn’t too much fun
And the future you’re giving me holds nothing for a gun
I’ve no wish to be living sixty years on

Yes I’ll sit with you and talk let your eyes relive again

I know my vintage prayers would be very much the same
And Magdalena plays the organ, plays it just for you
Your choral lamp that burns so low when you are passing through

And the future you’re

giving me holds

nothing for a

I’ve no wish to be living
