I Still Hear The Bells

We built our house here on the shore
We wrote our names above the door
And you were mine alone forever more /

We built our love way out of sight
We clung together, held on tight
And said our vows one secret stormy night

And it’s so long since our last farewell…

But I still hear the bells
Ding dong / Ding dong
I know you’re gone, I know you’re gone
Ding dong / Ding dong
We don’t belong, we don’t belong
But the bells ring on

We built our house on shifting sands
Winds and tides got out of hand and
Walls were not as solid as we planned /

We built our love too near the edge
Too many stormy words were said
And vows swept out to sea and sunk like lead

And it’s so long since our last farewell –

But I still hear the bells
Ding dong / Ding dong
I know you’re gone, I know you’re gone
Ding dong / Ding dong
We don’t belong, we don’t belong
But the bells ring on

Our tears turned into floods of rain
We called for help, no rescue came
Cries drowned out by thunder
Everything went under
Everything went under

Now fish swim through the chapel tower
Coral as the wedding flowers
The aisles are filled with stones and shells

But I still hear the bells
Ding dong / Ding dong
I know you’re gone, I know you’re gone
Ding dong / Ding dong
We don’t belong, we don’t belong
But the bells ring onnnnnnnnnnnnnn…………..
