lyrics

Capital capital. Cap at Capital City (x4)

Come away now. (x2)
Come away now to the city.
(Repeat)

Can you feel it? It's the call of the city.
The bustling thrum that sends your soul a-singing.
Down at the docks they are working on the jetty,
and their hammering hammering is the pulse of the city.

Out in the square, there are people everywhere,
The trav'lers and traders are looking to make a deal,
In the morning, there'll be stock to take,
From the mooring, to the marketplace.

Come away now. (x2)
Come away now to the city.
(Repeat)

Down the street, the soldiers march to the beat,
Of the rat-a-tat-tat, of the army's pipe and drum,
New enlist-ers and their battle-scarred sisters,
Give their lives to the dream, that there's a better world to come.

A young woman stares, as she's selling her wares.
She's got a rumbling belly, while their fighting to keep her free.
She let's out a cry, as the gents pass her by,
In their search for glory, they don't hear her desp'rate plea...

Pray my lord,
Please stay my lord.
I got goods to sell.
I want more to life than this.

Give me hope.
Give me all the strength I need.
I may be broke,
But I'm going to make it in.

Capital capital. Cap at Capital City (x4)

Up on the hill, the congregation have gathered
They've got hardships enough, but none of that matters
In the moment that they share in dawns light,
It's a blessing that they are together in this short life...

Come away now. (x2)
Come away now to the city.
(Repeat)
