Lyrics

7 Sorrows of Stephen (c) & (p) 2016 Ian Roure

 

And we meet up once again

As the dusk descends

You plot your escape

Though there is no light

To shine round the bend

 

But you must try anyway

The sorrow suffocates

To draw a free breath

Must seem like it’s worth

The risk that you take

 

Bring Southern Wood, Sweet Cicely

Is it Mars or Mercury?

 

Cut the Quicksilver loose

And cast away

The 7 Sorrows of Stephen

 

And do you feel much better?

Not just another blue straggler

And do you feel much better?

Better…

 

And we meet up once again

The sorrow never ends

You plot your escape

Though there’s still no light

To shine ‘round the bend

 

But you must try any way

The sorrow suffocates

To draw a free breath

Must seem like it’s worth

The risk that you take

 

Bring Juniper, Spring Savoury

Is it Mars or Mercury?

 

Now the Quicksilver’s loose

What will break

The 7 Sorrows of Stephen?
