Lisbon

Written By: Gregor Craigie

Can you lend me your guitar a while, he asked me.
I have nothing but my cigarettes and my own company.
One last time I’ll pour my heart and soul into what few chords I know.
It won’t take long, I’m almost empty.

It was war that brought me here, now it’s my home.
We came together but now I’m alone.
A dozen years have passed me by, since my father returned and left me.
Since my mother found someone knew and replaced me.

I’m broken and scarred.
Has my soul been barred?

So here will I sit a while and wait, wait for his return,
Here will I sit a while and wait, for my fire, my fire to burn.
In your eyes I see hope, but you have a home.
In your eyes I see love, but you’re not alone.

I’m broken and scarred.
Has my soul been barred?

What can I say to you my friend, I will pray.
You haven’t met your end in this today.
And life is for believing that your heart will find his light.
I pray someday you will know the hope that now you can’t find.
