Sometime Soon

Sometime Soon
When the streets are full of sound
And the curtains move in unison
In that moment that we haven't found
And if and when...
And when Sometime soon. Why not now?

Meanwhile back
Stuck in traffic on the Great North Road
Framed in steel, nonetheless he dreams of gold
One more day, one more week, one more year
One more life but sometime very soon

Walking by the winter's edge, one day
Thought of all that I had thought
And then I heard you say
"We won't know 'til the end I won't know"

Walking through the town I know, one day
Thought of all the things I had thought
And then I heard you say
"We won't know 'til the end
I won't know 'til the end"

Walking through my life one day,
I found All the years that lay behind
Like a crowd they blocked my way
"You won't know 'til the end
I won't know 'til the end"
"We won't know 'til the end
I won't know 'til the end"

Meanwhile back
Stuck in traffic on the Great North Road
Framed in steel, nonetheless he dreams of gold
One more day, one more week, one more year
One more life and sometime very soon

Someday, sometime, someday soon
Someday, sometime, someday soon

Sometime soon, if time allows us to
If all the shouting in this building dies away for you
Before you say what you had meant to say
When we passed upon the landing, thinking
Something good is coming sometime soon

Sometime soon all the things that weigh us down
All the words that hang upon the gables of our lives will fall
Sometime soon

Someday, sometime, someday soon
Someday, sometime, someday soon

Sometime soon

All the tin-pot men and boys
With their five stage tin-pot plans will fade away
Sometime soon

A spark amongst
A spark amongst dry grass
A thin column of smoke
Like an afterthought

Tonight the wind
Tonight the leaves are all around
And in the rain
I walk to town

And in the streets
A silence reigns about the town
I hold my breath
And turn around

And someday soon
Before the waking of the town
And on the wind
The leaves come down
The leaves come down
The leaves come down

All that I know will be there when I've gone
The light through the trees and
The murmuring breeze
All will be there, will be there
All be there, will be there
But not me, not me, not me

The ball rolls along in the mud and the song
That rings out so loud as you stand in the crowd
One voice is gone, it is gone
One voice is gone, it is gone
That's me, that, me, that, me

But not us, but not us, but not us

An that we hear, that we see, that we know
Will always be here, though our lives disappear
All will be here, be here
All will be here, will be here
But not us, but not us, but not us

Soon Something good is coming sometime soon
And if and when maybe sometime soon

Waiting here in the dark for a train
A dark suited man with his daughter
All of the light washed away with the rain
The world has been turned into water
Here today but all swept away
The dark-suited man and his daughter

Crouching down as he waits for the sign
He jumps at the sound of the mortar
Thoughts turn to home, and heart turns to stone
The world has been turned into water
Here today but all swept away
Kingdom come, at the thud of the mortar

Listening out for the crash of the glass
The soldiers march into the quarter
Dragged down their stairs, and out of their homes
The world has been turned into water
Here today but all swept away
By the wave that offers no quarter
Here today but all swept away
For the world has been turned into water

Sometime soon
When the pit bull boys have drunk their last
And the debt collectors lose them homes
With the solvent holding fast
And here and now
In the corners of our lives some light will fall
Sometime soon, why not now,

Meanwhile back
They're cheering on the charabanc
On the Spanish Main
All the pirates walk the plank
For all the days outside
The years we've frittered by
The truths we crushed beneath The weight of courtroom lies
Something, coming good — sometime soon

Meanwhile back
Round the corner from the village square
In the stillness of a summer, day
And I'm trying hard not to stare
At your eyes, your dark brown legs
Your face cradled by your dark brown hair
Something's coming good — sometime soon
Sometime soon
