New Song: The Blitz

The Blitz
by JB

Click here to listen to “The Blitz”

The full moon is our enemy
It lights the sky like day
No clouds overhead
Hide us from the fray

Spent shells fall like rain
Upon the rolling countryside
Thundering artillery
And heroes in the sky

We will still be dancing
When our homes are blown to bits
We will make it through together
We will survive the Blitz

Jerry’s on his way, she said
I can always tell
By the sound of rocket engines
And the Warden’s swinging bell

We are young
Let us be young
The waltz won’t wait
For the end

We are young
Let us be young
Or what is there
To defend

So we danced at Covent Garden
Pretending not to listen
For the distant engine rumble
And the siren…

We will still be dancing
When the last explosion hits
We will make it through together
We will survive the Blitz

We will still be dancing
When our homes are blown to bits
We will make it through together
We will survive the Blitz

Note: The lyrics for this song were inspired by this first-person account of British life during the Blitz.
