Lyrics

TOO MANY CHILDREN

WE WERE DYING TO KNOW WHAT WENT ON BEHIND DOORS
BEHIND NEIGHBOURHOOD CURTAINS
AND NEIGHBOURHOOD WALLS
AND WE SHARED EVERY SECRET, REVEALED TO US
ALL THROUGH THE TOWN

AND WE FIRMLY BELIEVED IN A LIFE AFTER CHILDHOOD
WHERE PROMISE TODAY WAS THE FRUIT OF TOMORROW
WE WERE TOO MANY CHILDREN
AND NOT ENOUGH DREAMS TO GO ROUND

DO YOU REMEMBER THE DAYS OF THE PROMISE OF SUMMER
COLDS AND CHILBLAINS AND SOAKING-WET WINTERS
AND SUSIE AND CHARLIE WHO STAYED
WHEN THEIR MOTHER BROKE DOWN

THOSE BROWN AUTUMN EVENINGS, BAITING THE WINOS
LETTING THE DOGS LOOSE AND RINGING ON DOORBELLS
SHARING THE FEAR
OF EACH SPARKLING ADVENTURE WE FOUND

CRAZY MARY, WHO DIED AFTER CATCHING HER DRAGON
BILLY THOM BROKE HIS BACK WHEN HIS BIKE HIT A WAGON
WE WERE TOO MANY CHILDREN
AND NOT ENOUGH DREAMS TO GO ROUND

SOME OF US LIVED, SOME OF US DIED
SOME OF US DISAPPEARED FOREVER
TAKEN BY THE EBBING TIDE
SOME OF US LOST, SOME OF US FOUND
THAT WE WERE TOO MANY CHILDREN
AND NOT ENOUGH DREAMS TO GO ROUND

SOME OF US LAUGHED, SOME OF US CRIED
SOME OF US FEELL IN LOVE AND MARRIED
SOME WERE FAITHFUL, OTHERS LIED
SOME WENT UP AND SOME WENT DOWN
BUT WE WERE TOO MANY CHILDREN
AND NOT ENOUGH DREAMS TO GO ROUND

WE WERE TOO MANY CHILDREN
AND NOT ENOUGH DREAMS TO GO ROUND
