lyrics

Cannon Report

I've met hardened hearts
on the boulevard to the graves
of children who last were running
down these Paris lanes

I am nothing more to the few
who see me here than a part
in the town's gray tapestry
of war begotten guilt

It's been a year
I haven't felt the change
I am still waiting for the cannon report
to bring me to the end
I've been waiting for
but it isn't coming

I have met great men
I was one for a day
but war has taken my fear of death
and left a lust in its place

A lust to end the misery
of a life with the memory
of a pain that won't recur
of a life that won't be bent again

It's been ten years
I haven't felt the change
I am still waiting for the cannon report
to bring me to the end
I’ve been waiting for
but it isn't coming

I’ve been waiting all these years
for the death of a man
and I don't think the chance
is ever coming

It's been twenty years
I haven't felt the change
I am still waiting for the cannon report
to bring me to the end
I’ve been waiting for
but it isn't coming
