lyrics

Give me some fire so I can burn
Give me some prayers that I can learn
Give me some rules that I can know
Give me your hand that I can hold

Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
Light a candle and show me the world you believe in
Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
It’s been coming on
It’s been coming on

We know the words but we don’t know the meaning
We sing the songs but we don’t know the reason for singing them
I’m still singing them
I still remember the feeling of being in a house that was built to contain all the things that you couldn’t understand
That you’d never understand
Then you took my hand and you said…

Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
Light a candle and show me the world you believe in
Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
It’s been coming on
It’s been coming on

Where are the books and the things we believe in?
Where are the hymns and the place we were kneeling?
Where are the angels all spinning my heart?
Where are the angels all spinning my heart?
We know the words but we don’t know the meaning
We sing the songs but we don’t know the reason for singing them
We’re still singing them
I still remember the feeling of being in a house that was built to contain all the things that you couldn’t understand
Oh God I will never understand
We’re pinning all of our hopes on a sense that comes with a touch
And is soon disappearing the moment it is gone, the moment it is gone

You gave me some fire so I could burn
You gave me some books so I could learn
You gave me some rules that I can know
You gave me your hand that I could hold

Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
Light a candle for the world you believe in
Meet me in the corner of the church of St Stephen’s
Light a candle for the world you believe in

Give me some fire so I can burn
Give me your hand so I can burn.

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
