the last time i cried lyrics – chris de burgh

the last time i cried
i was sitting home and it was deep in the night
staring at the shadows and the flickering lights

giving all that i had
to take them away
giving all that i had
to make them pay

the last time i cried
i could see the people, long ago in the rain
waiting as the soldiers put them all on a train

and the hands on the bar
the eyes full of tears
and the word is the same
for a thousand years

eli eli lama, oh, lord
you have forsaken me
eli eli lama, oh, lord
you have forsaken me

the last time i cried
i could not believe it, when i held on a face
staring at a soldier with his gun in the rain

it was the face of a child
my child here asleep
and the soldier who smiled
the man was me

eli eli lama, oh, lord
you have forsaken me
eli eli lama, oh, why
have you forsaken me?

eli eli lama, oh, lord
you have forsaken me

the last time i cried
the last time i cried
the last time i cried
the last time i cried

the last time i cried
the last time i cried
the last time i cried
the last time i cried
the last time
