Sleeping Dogs

You couldn’t find your peace
Within the bitterness that burns
For the Sleeping Dogs that lie
Forever to return,
forever to return

Gone but not forgotten
you cut me down just to watch me bleed
Gone but not forgotten
I gave you the last word
and that’s the last thing you’ll take from me

Isn’t justice that you hope?
Believe in the story that you sell
For the Sleeping Dogs that lie

They are live and well, live and well
Gone but not forgotten
you cut me down just to watch me bleed
Gone but not forgotten

I gave you the last word
and that’s the last thing you take from me
Gone but not forgotten
you cut me down just to watch me bleed
Gone but not forgotten

I gave you the last word
and that’s the last thing you take from me
Last thing you take from me
The Last thing you take from me

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin‘ in the wind
The answer is blowin‘ in the wind

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin‘ in the wind
The answer is blowin‘ in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ‚till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin‘ in the wind
The answer is blowin‘ in the wind

Remember the first time that I saw you
thinking one day will be the lucky to
I looked at you and your beautiful hair
give me your hand and we’ll go somewhere
I will take you down the city for a ride
Spend the night together by the river on the west side
Wish you were here, I wish you were here
Wish you were here, I wish you were here

If I knew then what I know now
and that one day we will say good bye
so many things that we left unsaid
remember your naked back on my bed
I will take you down the city for a ride
Spend the night together by the river on the west side
Wish you were here, I wish you were here
Wish you were here, I wish you were here

I will take you down the city for a ride
Spend the night together by the river on the west side
Wish you were here, I wish you were here
Wish you were here, I wish you were here
