lyrics

I was thinking of that night in Castle Row
The light had drawn all colour from our sweet tableau
Out in the darkness where the cemetary lay
Stone angels waited for the coming of the day
Stone angels waited for the coming of the day

They sang a lullaby to take me far away
Way down the river to a warm and happy place
I'd only slept maybe an hour when you left
The vision of our future hanging by a thread
The vision of our future hanging by a thread

Daylight flashed upon the blind, my mind was running wild and
Below the convent bells rang out
Above the market traders' cry
The dogs, the milkman, the paperboy

Down among the misspelt names upon the stones
I felt a brotherhood and somehow less alone
So I went down to cure the pain behind my eyes
4.30 in the morning, stone angels cry
4.30 in the morning, stone angels cry
