England

Posted in Lyrics by chrislightyear

(Russell, Owens, Lyons) My father worked every hour My timing was good Fought enemies we believed in For honour we stood With sentiment, I grow older I’m watching things change These settlement walls are burning Fear bellows the flames  For another second we remain Halt the fire with steady, ashen
