Julia Jacklin – Lydia Wears a Cross Lyrics

[Julia Jacklin – Lydia Wears a Cross Lyrics]

Seated in rows
Knees and eyes closed, I felt pretty
In the sH0es and the dress
Confused by the rest, could he hear me?
Lydia wears a cross
Says she’s never gonna take it off
We sit back to back
Listening to Jesus Christ
Superstar soundtrack

I’d be a believer
It was all just song and dance
I’d be a believer
If I thought we had a chance

Eyes to the board
Thoughts to our Lord
We were praying for
Princess Diana
Miss Brown was keeping score
Vivien’s holding on
But singing every single word wrong on the parade float
Just a child in a leotard beneath a technicolour dream coat

I’d be a believer
If it was all just song and dance
I’d be a believer
If I thought we had a chance

The line up, the quiet
The bleeding heart divided
Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me, go on now, you try it
Oh

We sung “Welcome to the Family”
Arms raised at every assembly
Little sirens singing their songs
Where have the babies gone?

I’d be a believer
If it was all just song and dance
I’d be a believer
If I thought we had a chance
