My City Of Ruins
Bruce Springsteen
There's a blood red circle
On the cold dark ground
And the rain is falling down
The church doors thrown open
I can hear the organ's song
But the congregation's gone

My city of ruins
My city of ruins

Now the sweet veils of mercy
Drift through the evening trees
Young men on the corner
like scattered leaves
The bordered up windows
The empty streets
While my brother's down on his knees

My city of ruins
My city of ruins

Come on rise up
Come on rise up

Now there's tears on the pillow
Darlin' where we slept
And you took my heart when you left
Without your sweet kiss
My soul is lost, my friend
Tell me how do I begin again

My city's in ruins
My city's in ruins

Now with these hands
With these hands...
I pray Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for the strength Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for the faith Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for your love Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for the strength Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for your love Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for the faith Lord (with these hands...)
I pray for the strength Lord (with these hands...)

Come on rise up
Come on rise up
Rise up
