lyrics

On a bridge across a dried up river
On a house right up the street
On a girl who dared to stand by her window
On a café where we used to meet

On a shop where my father worked for years
On a painting of a sunset and a balcony
On a hotel missed in the first engagement
On a rebuilt stage and silver screen

Oh, the cost of sovereignty
I pay with the death of my sovereign queen

Near the laser painted wall of a factory
On the rough longitude of a palace of fortune
Near the grain, near the milk, near the last clear water
And two hundred days to wait for the rain

Yeah, these are the days of miracles and wonders
Of pamphlets and sirens and legacy
But when you’re born as the son of a desert farmer
There’s no escaping destiny

And the cost of sovereignty
I pay with the death of my sovereign queen

And all my angels of progress and design
Go back from where you came, there’s no one on this line

And the cost of sovereignty
I pay with the death of my sovereign queen
