Last Night
Chris de Burgh
Last night
I was walking through the harbour
where the fishing boats
were lying on the shore
The news had travled fast
And everyone went to be
Where the mayor was makeing a speach
And the crowed started chearing
As they talked about the glory of it all
And the boys comeing home from the war
The boys comeing home from the war

Last night
There were dancing in the streets
And makeing music in the allyways and bars
From a house down in the old tomn
Came the sound of guitars
Margarita was waiting inside
With here long black hair
hanging down beneath the red light, and she smiled
For the boys comeing home from the war
The boys comeing home form the war

And they said they were heroes
And they said they were fine
Were kings in comand
And we have god on our side
And we said nothing will make us change
In any way
Since yesterday-Were just the same
Since yesterday-Nothing has changed
Since yesterday-Were just the same
But I can still feel that new kind of hunger inside
To be satisfied
I saw it there last night

Last night
I was walking through the shadows
Far away from all the music and the girls
Then I saw a soldier waiting
With a women in black
As she stood without any word
Just staring at a photograph
Of someone as she began to cry
For a boy left behind in the war
Some boy left behind in the war

And they said they were heroes
And they said they were fine
Were kings in comand
And we have god on our side
And we said nothing will make us change
In any way
Since yesterday-Were just the same
Since yesterday-Nothing has changed
Since yesterday-Were just the same
But I can still feel that new kind of hunger inside
To be satisfied
I saw it there last night
