A D A He was there the night the wall came down. A F#m D He lost her in the endless crowd, Bm E A D In the shadow of St. Stephen's cross. A D A He sent cries aloft for his fellow man, A F#m D His fingers slipping from her hand, Bm E A D The rain clouds prowling overhead. A D A She was there the night the wall came down. A F#m D She faded into that newborn crowd Bm E A D Like a warning of what could be lost. A D A Through the perforated night she ran, A F#m D Her fingers slipping from his hand Bm E And she breathed in freedom A D Before daylight tread. A D A They were there the night the wall was drowned A F#m D In the surging of that tidal crowd Bm E An old world made new A D On the same holy ground. A D A She found him standing, looking lost A F#m D In the shadow of St. Stephen's cross, Bm E A D And he closed his eyes and heard no sound Bm E A D But her breathing warm against his mouth.
