Lyrics

DELVILLE WOOD

Nothing moved
In Princes Street
Nobody there
No one to greet you
No piercing screams
No metal clang
Just the sound of the birds
As they chattered and sang
Nothing moved
Nothing should
All lay quiet
In Delville Wood

In Regent Street
No shoppers there
Just a couple of silent
Grazing deer
In the morning light
In a wooded glade
Laying quietly
Upon the brave
Nothing moved
Nothing should
All lay quiet
In Delville Wood

A careless footprint
In Rotten Row
At the sudden noise
They turn they go
Across the gentle furrows
That in the soil remain
Which belie the carnage
The suffering the pain
Then nothing moved
Nothing should
All lay quiet
In Delville Wood
Nothing moved
Nothing should
All lay quiet
In Delville Wood
