Music/lyrics: Rodrigo San Martín

lyrics

They disembarked in '45,
no one smiled

Disemobodied and out of hope
no home to long

"This should never happen again,
Oh love, please don't leave me again"
She said

Who would ever have though
that this could happen?
While he was fighting for her
The Blitz took his wife

"This should never happen again,
Oh love, please don't leave me again"
She said



Born close to the edge
I was born and raised in the depths of hell
Escaped to the islands as a child
in '17

I lived in the streets, I knew Aqualunq
and some gal Mary
But I always chased a stupid Dream
Even though my life was a passion play

Finally I stood up
made the final cut of my former life
Even met a girl who made me feel
I knew the light

But news of the world came to town
in '39
and i had to leave again
it was all a mirage

Chorus:
The last thing she ever said to me was
"please don't leave again"
And I never saw her face again
even though I came back home

Living in the past
I spend my life dreaming of those days
but so many years have passed
it all feels like moving pictures

I wish she was here
even though sometimes I feel ashamed
That so many years have passed
and I can't recall her face

The last thing she ever said to me was
"please don't leave again"
And I never saw her face again
even though I came back home


When did I start to forget you?
When did you begin to slip my mind?

I'd give anything to see you
Come here, take my place in the world


I don't that think you'd be proud
if you saw what I've become

You deserve the place I have
let your spirit take my body

The ultimate sacrifice
I'll bring you from the grave

I'm not worth anything
I will gladly trade my life
I'll give you a second chance
this will be my sacrifice

I pray for you, lord of the night
to take what I can give
I will give you my life
in exchange for hers

My life is my only coin
I will giv e you all I have
Please accept my sacrifice
there is nothing I can do
