Back To The Wall - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Stranger at the gate let him in
Stranger at the gate let him in
Stranger at the gate let him in
Won't you let him in

He's been waiting on the other side
He's been waiting on the other side
He's been waiting for the turn of the tide
Won't you let him in


Promises leave you with nothing to show
Destiny leaves you with nowhere to go


Back to the wall
Have you seen the light?
Is your soul worth saving?
Back to the wall
Can you pay the price
Then your life is waiting


Down by the shore
We can help you no more
Standing with our back to the wall


Is your soul worth saving?
Have you seen the light?
Then your life is waiting
Can you pay the price?


Promises leave you with nothing to show
Destiny leaves you with nowhere to go


Back to the wall
Have you seen the light?
Is your soul worth saving?
Back to the wall
Can you pay the price
Then your life is waiting


Down by the shore
We can help you no more
Standing with our back to the wall
