    Les paroles de la chanson

    [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.

    L’histoire de la chanson

    En 1959, Shanty descend dans la crypte où un prêtre a organisé une fête. C’est un adolescent perturbé qui ne croit ni en Dieu, ni en soi-même. Alors qu’il chante l’avenir, Mary Dee lui apparaît et annonce la mort de son père. Shanty reste seul avec sa détresse.
