Scott Walker - War Is Over (Epilogue) Lyrics




Everything still
Everything silent
As after the rain

We lie here listening
To night close down

Stare like a child
Wait for the signs to decide
Once again

Just when they looked here
To stay
We're to leave
Our world arraign
It really isn't fair

Outside they sing
The war is over
Raise your blinds
The war is over
Tell your deepest dark
Goodbye

A distant waltz
Turns in the head
Of an old lady's night
Waiting hands unfold
Within the dark

Lighting her lamp
Seeing Prince Albert
Recalling the sight
They waltz again through the park
Floorboards creak
Beneath the moon
The room below just sighs

Outside they sing
The war is over
Raise your blinds
The war is over
Let me get some sleep
Tonight

Everything still
Everything silent
As after the rain

Still we are after
The rain

    Everything still, everything silent
    As after the rain
    We lie here listening to night close down
    Stare like a child, wait for the signs
    To decide once again
    Just when they looked here to stay
    We're to leave our world
    Our air
    It really isn't fair

    Outside they sing "The war is over!"
    "Raise your blinds, the war is over!"
    Tell your deepest dark
    Goodbye

    A distant waltz turns in the head
    Of an old lady's night
    Waiting hands unfold within the dark
    Lighting her lamp, seeing Prince Albert
    Recalling the site
    They waltz again through the park
    Floorboards creak beneath the moon
    The room below just sighs

    Outside they sing "The war is over!"
    "Raise your blinds, the war is over!"
    Let me get some sleep
    tonight

    Everything still, everything silent
    As after the rain
    Still we are
    After
    The
    Rain

    Wonderful song. I first heard this on 'Boy Child - The Best of 1967-1970'. Living in a house in Nottingham, all to myself, making Classical Guitars at Newark College. Fab memories
