Late Victorian Holocaust

This song is by Marianne Faithfull and appears on the album Give My Love to London (2014).

Up the Golborne Road with star-light in our blood
Over the bridge and along the canal
It was a late Victorian holocaust, pal
We were star-babies in the dark
Throwing up in Meanwhile Park
Then sleeping in each others arms
Beyond happy we were, beyond harm

Sweet little sleep
My dreams are yours to keep
Past the school with moon-fire in our hearts
Past The Cow
It was a late Victorian holocaust, but wow
We were star-babies as the day begun
Up the stairs and at a run
Then sleeping in each others' arms
Happy we were and beyond harm
Sweet little sleep
My dreams are yours to keep

Down the Golborne Road with sunshine in our spines
Year after year
It was a late Victorian holocaust, dear
We were star-babies for a time
Lying down in Meanwhile Park
Sleeping in each others arms
Then up again and off we'd blow
Back down the Golborne Road we'd go

Nobody will ever wake again
And never will we rise
And never will we go
Along the canal and up the Golborne Road

Sweet little sleep
My dreams are yours to keep
Sweet little sleep
My dreams are yours to keep
