Paul McCartney - Movement III - Crypt Lyrics




[SHANTY]
And so it was that I had grown
Into a youth uncertain, thrown
Amongst the lions and the lambs.
To pass the time we watched the children dance.

I used to come here when this place was a crypt.
Now the music plays.
Oh don't you sometimes wish they'd stick to the script
As the local preacher says.

Rain from heaven will blessings bring,
Behold the harvest grown. R
Ian from heaven falls down on you,
But me, I feel alone.

[PREACHER (sympathetically)]
Alone.

[SHANTY]
Alone.

[PREACHER]
If they won't come to worship
God in a church
Something must be done.
We have to instigate a nationwide search
For a way to make it fun.
Rain from heaven will blessings bring,
Behold the harvest grown.

[SHANTY and PREACHER]
Rain from heaven falls down on you,

[SHANTY]
But me, I feel alone.
Alone.

Here now,
What am I doing here now?
Hear me,
Why do you never hear me?
Why do you never hear me?

[MARY DEE (as half-ghost)]
I'll always be here.
I'll never leave you.
I'll always be in your mind.
Dreams of the future,
Ghosts of the past left behind.

[WOMEN'S CHORUS]
(Ah)

[SHANTY]
Thought I had a vision
Lying in a graveyard,
Thought I heard a melody inside.
Could it be the future,
Speaking with the voice of those who died?

Thought I saw a kingdom,
Happiness and laughter,
Somewhere for an innocent to play.
Is there any justice?
Do these things still happen in this way?

[MARY DEE]
Don't tell him no,
It isn't fair.
For he was told by those who know
There was love everywhere.

[SHANTY]
Love everywhere.

[MARY DEE]
Now's the time to tell him,
While his mother's crying.
Break it to him gently as she weeps.
Let him know his father
Will be well looked after, where he sleeps.

[CHORUS (ghosts)]
He's sleeping amongst us.
He's in our dreams.
Don't worry. he's with us now.

[SHANTY]
Don't say it's so,
It isn't fair.
For I was told by those who know
There was love everywhere.

Alone.
