Sting – Moon Over Bourbon Street

Sting – Be Still My Beating Heart

Sting – All This Time

Sting – All This Time

  I looked out acrossThe river todayI saw a city in the fog and an old church towerWhere the seagulls playI saw the sad shire horses walking homeIn the sodium lightI saw two priests on the ferryOctober geese on a cold winter’s nightAnd all this time, the river flowedEndlessly to the seaTwo priests came round […]
