flags and banners lyrics – faces

last night i was woken by my cry
had a dream just as plain as you and i
saw the morning sun on a woodland in the spring
still hear the echo crashing through the trees
oh when i saw you down i fell upon my knees

you and i we were wearing southern grey
i called to you but i used another name
i beat the ground and i cried out in your pain
through a scarlet door i watched you slipping away
and your brother’s helpless prayers were all in vain

last night i was woken by my cry
* written by ronnie lane, rod stewart
