Returning Fire (2004)

“St. Peters”


I danced on the day
When the sky turned black
Oh how I danced
With the devil on my back
Doorway burning lighting the way
But young people got to dance.

There is a fire in St. Peters
I saw in a dream that I would be there.

Women in tears
Up in Cripplegate
Somewhere within
A still small voice
Doorway woman laughing out loud
But young got to take a chance.
