Chris de Burgh & Band performing the Song “The Revolution” “Light a fire” and “Liberty” live in Canada 1983

here are the lyrics to this awesome song .

1st part – Revolution :

Wake up boys, there’s a light at the window,
I can hear someone knocking on the door,
There are voices in the street,
And the sound of running feet,
And they whisper the word – “Revolution!”

There are men coming down from the valleys,
There are tall ships lying off the coast,
And they carry the light,
In the dark of the night,
Like a whisper in the wind – “Revolution!”

Bring my gun and a handful of silver,
By the sea we will gather for the fight,
It’s been so many years, so many tears,
We have lost once before,
Now we’ll settle the score,
When our cannons will roar – “Revolution!”

2nd part – “Light a Fire” :

Watch, and wait, get ready for the sign,
There are many here among us now,
Who have not seen the light,
We must send the word to all the people in the land,
Go to every hill and mountain,
For the time is now at hand,
To light a fire!

Let us march the road up the rocky hill tonight,
Under cover of the darkness,
We will slip behind the lines,
And we will take the men who have stolen our land,
For the years of domination,
Hit them right between the eyes,
And light a fire!
Light a fire,
Light a fire,
They will see through the rain!

3rd part – “Liberty”

Roll away the dawn,
Roll away the dawn, and let me see,
The land of the free,
Has anything changed at all;

Sweet liberty,
Sweet liberty is in our hands,
It’s part of the plan,
Or is it a state of mind?

Horses and men,
Horses and men are on the field,
They didn’t yield,
Many have fallen here;

Never forget,
Never forget what they have done,
The time will come,
When it will change again,
Never forget!
