P. J. Harvey - The Colour Of The Earth lyrics

rate me

Louis was my dearest friend

Fighting in the Anzac trench.

Louis ran forward from the line,

And I never saw him again.

Later in the dark

I though I heard Louis' voice

Calling for his Mother, then me,

But I couldn't get to him.

He's still up there on that hill.

20 years on that hill.

Nothing more than a pile of bones,

But I think of him still

If I was asked I'd tell

The colour of the earth that day;

It was dull and browny-red,

"the colour of blood" I'd say.
