Danse Macabre Thick As Thieves Lyrics

Last updated:

We promised to make a difference,
you and I
Both still young, feeling smart
Now in the light of this shaded lamp
I can almost see your smile

Dreamt of travelling land and sea
And thus we did, my friend,
you and me
Thick as thieves we were
Thick as thieves we were

Oh, and time was at our side
Well, at least so we believed
One day our nations prepared for a fight
And you and I had to join opposite sides

Never we shall behold the green fields
Or hear the birds sing in May
Our youth, our old day sacrificed
And with our lives we did pay

Dreamt of travelling land and sea
And thus we did, my friend,
you and me
Thick as thieves we were
Thick as thieves we were

Dreams shattered in filthy trenches
Our lungs filled with musterd gas
Beneath the grey skies,
in the fields of Flanders
Dreams shattered in filthy trenches
Our lungs filled with musterd gas
A torn cross bearing your name
in the grass

Oh, and time was at our side
Well at least so we believed
One day our nations prepaired for a fight
Oh, and time was at our side
Well at least so we believed
And you and I had to join opposite sides

Thick as thieves we were
