BRICK BY BRICK (W.Gillespie/R.Grosser)

  1. Let‘s build it up - brick by brick Let’s put it back - stick by stick Replace everything that we tore down -bricks and mortar and cement Replace all that we tore down –oh we could be magnificent Gotta find away to calm you down Gotta find a way to sooth you Gotta find away to calm you down Without putting out your fire

  2. And build it up stone by stone Turn this graveyard plot into a home Oh we’ll be stronger than we were before -we’ll learn to do what we forgot Oh we could build a citadel - on this dusty vacant lot

Gotta find a way to calm you down Gotta find a way to sooth you Gotta find a way to calm you down Without putting out your fire

  1. And build it up brick by brick And put it back, put it back, stick by stick Replace everything that we tore down –everything that we blew apart Replace all that we tore down, all you see is my black heart

Gotta find away to calm you down Gotta find a way to sooth you Gotta find away to calm you down Without putting out your fire Without putting out your fire Without putting out your...

4... Fire………………………………..brick by brick And put it back, put it back stick by stick We tore it down we can build it up -there must be something that we’ve learnt We tore it down we can put it back - all the tinder that we’ve burnt

Gotta find a way to calm you down Gotta find a way to sooth you Gotta find away to calm you down Without putting out your fire

  1. And build it up build it up brick by brick And put it back put it back stick by stick And build it up build it up stone by stone Oh there’s no need for us to be alone

We tore it down we can build it up -there must be something that we’ve learnt We tore it down we can put it back - all the tinder that we’ve burnt
