DIDO lyrics : "Day Before We Went To War"

All the pictures on the wall
The sand lying on the floor
The bed upstairs still unmade

The dust float in the light
The people just left
All laughter and mess

Forgetting this and that
And rushing back


The front door open
The music still playing in one room
Down the hall

Towels on the floor
And then it's quiet
Just the bees and birds

The summer haze
Of the trees
And the air

Feeds it all
Feeds it all


We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war
We can all feel it


All the parasols and kids at play
The sea so still and calm

Blue as the cloudless sky
Just the gentle hum
Of the summer's goings on

Broken by the sudden rush
Of two planes
Flying low and fast

Into the sun
Into the sun


We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war
We can all feel it


We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back

Welcoming you
We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back

Welcoming you
The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war

The day before we went to war
