lyrics

Until Kingdom Come

One day you'll be gone
We end like a song
Some crash and some fade
Either way, either way

Let's sing Dirty Old Town at the top of our lungs
Don't look now here comes the sun
Your head is a map and your heart is a drum
And the road is the road you're on 'til kingdom come

Johnny be good, Johnny too bad
Curse your luck and the family you had
We are born in all we fight
But every star's in the sky tonight

So let's sing Dirty Old Town at the top of our lungs
Don't look now here comes the sun
Your head is a map and your heart is a drum
And the road is the road you're on 'til kingdom come

You are the prettiest thing
I'm still in awe of the trouble you'd bring
With a broken heart I watched you leave
And after all I gave you still hated me

So let's sing Dirty Old Town at the top of our lungs
Don't look now here comes the sun
Your head is a map and your heart is a drum
And the road is the road you're on 'til kingdom come
'Til kingdom come
That's the road you're on
