Spandau Ballet - Through the barricades
Tekst en muziek: Gary Kemp
(1986)






Mother doesn’t know where love has gone
She says it must be youth
That keeps us feeeling 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
He tought me what to say in school
I learned it off 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 feel the same
And feel all of this strife
So come to me when I’m asleep
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
Well, there’s a scar right through my heart
But I’ll bare it again
Oh, I thought we were the human race
But we were just another border-line-case
And the stars reach out and tell us
There’s always one escape



Oh, I don’t know where love has gone
And in this trouble land
Desperation keeps us strong
A Fridays child is full of soul
With nothing left to lose
There’s everything to go



Now I know what they’re are 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 are saying
As our hearts go to their graves
And we made our love on wasteland
Ohoh, and through the barricades
