Through The Barricades (Spandau Ballet)

Mother doesn't know where love has gone

She says it must be youth that keeps this feeling strong

I see it in her face that's turned to ice

And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice

 

And now I know what they're saying as our sun begins to fade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

 

Father made my history

He fought for what he thought would set us somehow free

They taught me what to say in school

I learned it half by heart but now that's torn in two

 

And now I know what they're saying in the music of the parade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

 

Born on different sides of life

We fear the same and feel all of this strife

So come to me when I'm asleep ( sleep )

We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets

 

And now I know what they're saying as the drums begin to fade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

Oh turn around and I'll be there

 

F C G

There's a scar right through my heart but I'll bear it again

 

F C

Oh I thought we were the human race

 

G F#m#5 Em

But we were just another borderline case

 

Am7 C D

And the stars reach down and tell us there's always one escape

 

Oh I don't know where love has gone

And in this troubled land desperation keeps us strong

A friday's child is through the soul

With nothing left to lose there's everything to go

 

And now I know what they're saying it's a terrible beauty we've made

So we make our love on wasteland and through the barricades

And now I know what they're saying as our hearts go to their graves

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades
