Big Country - In This Place lyrics

All the years I worked in this place
The friends I knew here, I loved every face
I loved the smoke, the heat and the noise
But the profits too small for the blacksuited boys

Oh, angel
It's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up home by home
Take it away, take it away, take it

In this place I will lay my life down
In this place I will let you carry me
As I age so my learning grows
I still touch the vision, I still smell the rose
In this place

All the years I lived in this place
The people I knew here, I loved every face
I loved the parties, the funerals and fights
The supermarket needs the land, I have no rights

Oh, angel
It's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up home by home
Take it away, take it away, take it

In this place I will lay my life down
In this place I will let you carry me
As I age so my learning grows
I still touch the vision, I still smell the rose
In this place

All the years I spent in this place
The children are raised here, I loved every face
I loved this country, the land of my birth
But how much am I wanted, how much am I worth

Oh, angel
It's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up home by home
Take it away, take it away, take it

In this place I will lay my life down
In this place I will let you carry me
As I age so my learning grows
I still touch the vision, I still smell the rose

In this place where I lay my life down
In this place where I let you carry me
As I age so my learning grows
I still touch the vision, I still smell the rose
In this place
