Alarm — Sixty Eight Guns lyrics

And now they're trying to take my life away
Forever young I cannot stay
Hey
On every corner I can see them there
They don't know my name they don't know my kind
They're after you with their promises
(Promises of love)
They're after you to sign your life away
(Yeah, yeaoh)

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
Oh, the Sixty-eight

Living in the backstreets
That's our home from home
The painted walls were all we've ever known
慣he Guns Forever' that's our battle cry
It is the flag that we fly so high
For every day they'll try and drag us down
(Drag us down and down)
I cry with anger I have done no crime
No
(Yeah, yeaoh)

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
The Sixty-eight

Up on the terrace I can hear the crowd roar
Sixty Eight Guns
And in the subway I can hear them whisper
Sixty Eight Guns
Through all the raging glory of the years
We never once thought of the fears
For what we'd do when the battle cry was over.
Nothing lasts forever is all they seem to tell you when you're young

(I, I do swear
To unbreak the promise
To unbreak the vow

Unbreak it)

When you're young
Have no illusion, no disillusion

Unbreak the promise
Unbreak the vow
Uphold the promise

Sixty eight guns

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
The sixty eight guns
Sixty eight guns
The sixty eight guns
