Brooke Fraser - Flags Lyrics

Come, tell me your trouble
I'm not your answer
But I'm a listening ear

Reality has left you reeling
All facts and no feeling
No faith and all fear

I don't know why a good man will fall
While a wicked one stands
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

Who's at fault is not important
Good intentions lie dormant
And we're all to blame

While apathy acts like an ally
My enemy and I are one and the same

I don't know why the innocents fall
While the monsters still stand
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

I don't know why our words are so proud
Yet their promise so thin
And our lives blow about
Like flags in the wind

Oh oh oh oh

You who mourn will be comforted
You who hunger will hunger no more
All the last shall be first
Of this I am sure

You who weep now will laugh again
All you lonely, be lonely no more
Yes, the last will be first
Of this I'm sure

I don't know why the innocents fall
While the monsters stand
I don't know why the little ones thirst
But I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first

  19. Nathaniel Jones

    Brooke's style of music is the smoothest I ever heard.

  20. Joey Fisher

    @g1eri I think that it is a couple that doesnt want to be together because they know it would just bring pain. But its that realization that they could never be happy without each other. Who are they fooling by trying to be apart? No one. thats my take anyway.

  21. Alda Larusdottir

    @g1eri as I understand the lyrics its about a couple that are thinking about a divorce since things have been hard for a long time. But then they realize that those hard times are a big part of what is tying them together, and true love is a hard love. In the end they decide to stay together, arm in arm, because they said "for better or worse", and they cannot untie the know they have tied.
    But hey, Im Icelandic, so maybe Im getting it all wrong ;o)

  22. Shai
