Lyrics

Meet The Romanovs

Written By: Serenity Johnson

I thought I saw the White Army there just beyond the hill
I thought I saw the good Russian men coming to fulfill
The prophecy I made
The prophecy I made believe in
The prophecy I made myself believe

Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you
Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you

8 days sooner would have meant salvation for them all
8 days later in their pale coats came the victry call
but 8 days late

father and the little one reduced to belts and caps
the empress and her duchess daughters, not even so much as that

the children? But, the children--?
from a faithful friend (Gilliard)
we cant believe, we cant believe, we cant believe the truth
we cant believe, we cant believe, we cant believe the truth
we cant believe

Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you
Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you
Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you
Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo could have saved you

Hello Mr. Romanov, well see you when were gone
History has tried to right the deeds of many wrongs
Rasputin lied to you, we all know
And he lied to her, does she know?
Where was God? I would like to
Know the point of all
He did and didnt do that year

Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo should have saved you
Ekaterinburg, Livadia, Tsarskoe Selo should have saved you
(Rasputin lied to me
Rasputin lied to me
Father Gregory has lied to me)
