    Lyrics

    Ooh, great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
    Oh, when the blind man sings about the peaceful things
    You shout that it's not good enough

    Ah, we wait till daylight hours
    Waiting for a sign from you
    Golden temples concrete towers
    Building mansions on the hillside next to you

    In the city souls awaken bodies shaking
    Oh, pull me up let me see the view
    To the hungry in the gutter
    We've deprived them bread and butter
    Always not enough, no not enough

    Great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
    When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
    You shout that it's still not enough

    Ah well it's not the sound of ghosts I hear
    It's the devil with his chainsaw
    And I'll be running through the ghettos
    Through the townships of Soweto
    Always not enough, no not enough

    Brothers missing, babies kissing
    And the thing that got to you
    Burning never turning next to you

    Ooh, great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
    When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
    You shout that it's still not enough

    So listen to me darling
    They've got worries they've got troubles on their mind
    And when you hear them reaching out
    They're reaching out for something they can't find

    Oh, I believe one great day the rain will come
    And wash this mess away
    Oh, I believe one great day the rain will come

    They've got silver and diamonds
    They've got paradise around them
    They've got blue skies so clear
    They've got their prisoner in a wagon
    While the children chase the dragon
    And the free bird files so clear

    It files away
    Fly, fly, fly away
    Fly away
    Oh, you fly away

    And may your sweet lips so sing to me
    Let the bells ring wherever freedom be
    One babe is born and another one dies
    There's people making love tonight

    People making love tonight
    Ah, people making love tonight
    People making love, people making love tonight
    People making love

    I can hear them reaching out
    I can hear them reaching out
    I can hear them reaching out
    I can hear them reaching out
