lyrics

There was a man who had a grin
Walked the empty streets within the
City, the city

They say that once he was a king
Before the war when died the queen so
Pretty, so pretty

The gates were stormed, the city burned the
Queen and royal family turned to
Prisoners, to prisoners

He laid his life upon the line
The tower fell, the church bells chimed
In the city, in the city, she cries

Is there anyone here to help me?
Is there anyone here to save me?
Is all lost again? Could this be the end?
Is there anyone here to hear me?
Is there anyone left to love me?
Is all lost again? Could this be the end?

So now he walks the streets alone
Dreams of days upon the throne
With his lady, with his lady
Some say the man has just gone mad
Toss coins into his open hands so
Gritty, so gritty, he cries

Is there anyone here to help me? Is there anyone here to save me?
Is all lost again? Could this be the end?
Is there anyone left to hear me?
Is there anyone left to love me?
Is she gone for good? I’d hold her if I could

Our lives have always been
Written in the wind
Who knows the path, who writes the book of
Where our lives will end?

One day she left a note that read
Our love is gone, our love is dead
His world ended, his world ended

His empire crumbled to the ground
No more a king, no more a crown
Undefended, unintended

He’ll cross the bridge, the cobblestones
An empty street, an empty throne
Through the city, through the city

Down winding streets the church bells chime
For a sentence passed without crime
What a pity, what a pity

Is there anyone here to save me?
Is there anyone left to love me?
Is she gone for good? I’d hold her if I could Is there anything left to live for?
If I could just hold her once more
I’d give averything, I’d give anything

There was a man who had a grin
Walked the empty streets within the city, the city
