lyrics

Hearts of warmth;
bleeding energy
the heart, of everything.
We rely upon
your previsionary gift
to nurture us
in this never lasting bliss.

Heritage is all we'll ever have
the coal
(the coal)
and steel
(and steel)
and foundries that remain
have been
(have been)
and gone
(and gone)
never to return
from a future now in the past.

Close the mines and let them go
to their ruin of a home
heaven knows what they'll do
when all the talks to close come through
lock the shafts and throw the key
this industry is finished here
heaven knows just how they'll cope
under conservatory fear

Fortune never gave those men a voice
in the heat of all debate
abandoned hope, leaving them no choice
to salvage all they could

Close the mines and let them go
to their ruin of a home
heaven knows what they'll do
when all the talks to close come through
lock the shafts and throw the key
this industry is finished here
heaven knows just how they'll cope
under conservatory fear

We stand as one unbroken community
in the shadows of democracy
time will tell if out voice was ever heard
we never lost the fight.
