Lyrics:

I lost my city in the light of day
Thick smoke
Helicopter blades
Heaven and earth I’ve never moved so fast
You’ll never know the fear your mama has
I know your father can’t call anymore
He never meant to be a man of war
But we found freedom what will you do now
Bury the burden baby make us proud

I lost my city in the light of day
Thick smoke
Helicopter blades
Why would I bother to remember when
Our people baby die and live again

Look at this one
I want you to see
Fashion was high
My hair was so long
This was maybe ’73
You know I have been adored by good and kind men
They sent their love with poetry
By day I gave grand speeches
At night, like you
We danced to be free

I lost my city
In the prime of my time
Mud
Silk
And the dust of life
I was a diamond of the embassy
It doesn’t matter what I meant to be
Girl you come from the fortunate ones
Gold
Sky
And a first born son
We don’t have words for the way you have grown
We’ll always feed you
You can always come home

Why would a million dare sink in the sea?

I don’t want to say anymore
But I have been here before
I don’t want to say anymore
Find what you need
I don’t want to say anymore
But I have been here before
I have earned this sorrow
Mine to keep

I lost my city in the light of day
Thick smoke
Helicopter blades
Why would I bother to remember when
Our people baby die and live again

I lost my city in the light of day
Thick smoke
Helicopter blades
Heaven and earth I’ve never moved so fast
You’ll never know the fear your mama has
I know your father can’t call anymore
He never meant to be a man of war
But we found freedom what will you do now
Bury the burden baby make us proud
