Walk Us Uptown Lyrics - Elvis Costello

Review The Song (0)



Will you walk us uptown?
And wherever you go
You know we will follow
Will you walk us uptown?
And we'll stand in the light
Of your new killing ground
And we won't make a sound.

Except to sing our sorrow
Will you walk us uptown?
While our tears run in torrents
To suffer in silence or pray for some solace
Will you wash away our sins
In the cross-fire and cross-currents
As you uncross your fingers
And take out some insurance.

No matter what the price
sponsored links
It's your own paradise
Will you walk us uptown?
Will you walk us uptown?

Some hearts are sinking
And some hearts are a-flutter
Some scoop gold from the dirt in the gutter
Or swallow the earth
Pouring into your mouth
As they bury us upright saying
'Everything's alright'
Will you walk us uptown?
Like some said that you could
We will feast on your flesh
And drink down your blood
Will you haul down that flag
And dishonour that vow
Cause we must not change
It's color now
Will you walk us uptown?

No matter what the price
Each crushed in the corner of their own paradise
Will you walk us uptown?
Will you walk us uptown?
That's always assuming
That you're partly divine and partly human
You're the king of our hearts
You're the clown with the drum
Will you walk us uptown?
If we promise not to run
Will you walk us uptown?
Will you gather us near
As cowards flee and traitors sneer
Keep a red flag flying
Keep a blue flag as well
And a white flag in case it all goes to hell
