LyricsEdit

Luke:
There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables.
Now my friends are dead and gone.

Here they talked of revolution.
Here it was they lit the flame.
Here they sang about "tomorrow"
But tomorrow never came.

From a table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
I can hear them now!
The very words that they had sung
Became their last communion
On the lonely barricade at dawn.

Oh my friends, my friends forgive me

That I live and you are gone
There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain that goes on and on.

Phantom faces at the window.
Phantom shadows on the floor.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more.

Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me
what your sacrifice was for.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more.
