leningrad lyrics – chris de burgh

there she stood in an empty room, heard a voice from another time,
and the memories came rolling back of leningrad in the war;

for the girl in the photograph, much had changed in the years that p*ssed,
but her longing for the boy she loved was still the same since the war;

it was a moonless night upon the road of life, when he’d held her to say goodbye,
many more would survive, for he stayed behind to help them live again;

when they met at the garden gate, tears would fall from a deep embrace,
for she never knew what happened to the boy she loved in the war;

back in those happy days, before the soldiers came,
to break down the ones who remained,
and they only survived, who could learn to die, and live to fight again;

there they stood in an empty room, heard a voice from another time,
and their memories came rolling back of leningrad in the war.
