The Sound of a Gun

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album Man On The Line (1984).

I have seen the diamond stylus
Cut a groove from north to south
Heard them calling
From the islands for a better day

One by one they tell their story
One by one it's just the same
They've taken our leaders
And all their believers are paralyzed

And now we can't turn back, somebody is watching you
Don't turn 'round - yesterday's gone
And even the children are waking at midnight in tears
Didn't anyone hear? Mother, mother, mother

Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun
Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun

Looking out my bedroom window
I remember early days
When the shot that wounded millions
Took our breath away

But now the shadow of a gunman
With his balaclava eyes is making the news
Calling out the warnings on the telephone

You're in the line of, fire wish there was another way
Line of fire, anything goes
And who is the winner and what will the minister say
At the end of the day?
Never, never, never

Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun
Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun

This is bella soma, this is bella soma
This is bella soma, this is bella soma
This is bella soma, this is bella soma
Mother, mother, mother

Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun
Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun

Hush child, go to sleep
It's only the sound of a gun
Hush child, do not weep
It's only the sound of a world on the run
You're hearing the sound of a gun
