lyrics

Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me
I remember how happy we used to be
When there were flowers as far as the eye could see

Under the dying chestnut tree
I stabbed you and you stabbed me
It's not our faults, it had to be
In the land without music or poetry

"He's watching you" all the posters say
In every corner of every city
Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we both could go back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start

The crowds all hiss as the prisoners march
With faces bruised and palates parched
One by one soldiers load their charge
And gun them down like the pigs they are

"He's watching you" all the posters say
In every corner of every city
Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we both could go back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start

Under the growing chestnut tree
I kissed you and you kissed me
I'm sorry we just couldn't be
Delivered from this villainy

Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we all could go back to the start
