song of yesterday lyrics – black country communion

“song of yesterday”

i hold, true p*ssion
for many years, i would listen
the heavy weight upon my chest
like a wailing wall

code of silence of a dying heart
don’t know where the end
begins and the truth starts
when the hammer falls
it falls on you
i sit here waiting, waiting

i pull back the veil,
and i just can’t breathe (uh),
and i flyyy away (ohh, ohh)
i fly away
gonna’ fly us away
like a song of yesterday

freezing night, a oil lamp burns
the sun’s fire, soon will return
broken castles, the flags still flown
like a living ghost

code of silence of a dying heart
don’t know where the end
begins and the truth starts
when the hammer falls
it falls on you
i sit here waiting, waiting

i pull back the veil,
and i just can’t breathe (uh),
and i flyyy away (ohh, ohh)
break it down, so low that you
don’t know when to fail
try a little harder, now you’re the
drunk mad man in jail

hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm
hmmmm, hmmmm
hmm, hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm
hmmmm, hmmmm

i fly away. gonna’ fly us away
gonna’ fly us away.
gonna’ fly us away
i’m reaching out…
like a song of yesterday
