I Can’t Hear the People Sing


I can't hear the people sing
All of my dreams have turned to ash
Now all my dear friends have gone from me
And my fate will come at last

No one joined in our crusade
Eight Parisians stood with me
Beyond the barricade
There was a world I longed to see
We have lost the fight
that would give us the right to be free

I can't hear the people sing
All of my dreams have turned to ash
Now all my dear friends have gone from me
And my fate will come at last

We have given all we can give
Our banner never once advanced
All will fall and five will live
We stood up and took our chance
The blood of the martyrs
won't water the meadows of France

I can't hear the people sing
All of my dreams have turned to ash
Now all my dear friends have gone from me
And my fate will come at last

((The verses 1, 3, and 5 are all the work of another person. Here's the URL of the work this was inspired by. I modified the song "Do You Hear the People Sing" from Les Mis.))
