Ian Hunter
Letter To Britannia From The Union Jack

(ian hunter)

Poor britannia - drowning in your waves
With the body of the unknown soldier and the best of the brave
I have known you ever since I was a child
How come you don't salute me - now - when I smile

You was always so young and on all o' that money
How come new mourners pass you by and think it's so funny
I'd be there with you but I'm chained unto this stake
For I am loyalty but my mast I cannot forsake

I looked down on a bunch of amusements, I looked down walls
I've looked on hangings 'n parades 'n city halls
And I've seen love in so many living rooms
And I've seen rich men slowly die inside their tombs

I know we're just two charms but it's heavy on my mind
Have faith in me I said, now, look at time
I know you're just a victim of your history but
Have faith in me, I said and you would be free....

You pull me up and you pull me down
And when the queen's in residence I hang around
I don't wave madly 'cos the climate's civilised
Just flutter sadly 'cos I'm old 'n I'm wise

And you-you been up, and you - you been down
You been through many things I know you been around
I have fought armies for you in the conflicts of the past
Britannia, I implore you, do not lower me by half.


Mirror lyrics:

Britannia, I implore you, do not lower me by half.
I have fought armies for you in the conflicts of the past
You been through many things I know you been around
And you-you been up, and you - you been down

Just flutter sadly 'cos I'm old 'n I'm wise
I don't wave madly 'cos the climate's civilised
And when the queen's in residence I hang around
You pull me up and you pull me down

Have faith in me, I said and you would be free....
I know you're just a victim of your history but
Have faith in me I said, now, look at time
I know we're just two charms but it's heavy on my mind

And I've seen rich men slowly die inside their tombs
And I've seen love in so many living rooms
I've looked on hangings 'n parades 'n city halls
I looked down on a bunch of amusements, I looked down walls

For I am loyalty but my mast I cannot forsake
I'd be there with you but I'm chained unto this stake
How come new mourners pass you by and think it's so funny
You was always so young and on all o' that money

How come you don't salute me - now - when I smile
I have known you ever since I was a child
With the body of the unknown soldier and the best of the brave
Poor britannia - drowning in your waves

chove chuva

don't be cruel

black sweat

they can't save us now

sentimental fool

crazy

i need you so

you took my breath away

me against the world

daggers

someday soon

in christ alone

life's a wild ride

voilă  les anges (feat. coeur de pirate)

les baffes

was that my life

full moon

rose

hold fast

look what i found in my beer
