The Three of Us

Streetlight Manifesto


I will never defend
The man who makes amends with any enemy’s friends
I will never pretend

There we were, the three of us
The thief, the king and I
And finally we were forced to see
We were equals in the night (starry, starry night)

Looking down between the trees
Of the town we knew we had to leave
For what it’s worth we will walk the earth
Until we find the things we seek

And the king said:
I believe I’m a non-believer now
I wasn’t a leader but I had to lead them all
No one will ever know
The things I held inside, so let them go

Oh my god
Oh my god
Yes, oh my god

I will never defend
The man who makes amends with any enemy’s friends
I will never pretend
I will never bow down
To another man even when everyone’s saying I’ve sinned
I will never repent

Whoa, woah, woah, woah

They will not protect us (we will fall)
They will not defend us
We’ll be left behind
We’ll be left behind

I never gave a damn about the story's end
Or even how it all began
And the one word that I seek
Is more than I can tell myself

It’s a long and winding road
But if you reap the seeds you sow
You’ll see you’re really not alone

There we were, the three of us
The priest, the tramp and I
Years ago we had left to roam
And reunited on that night (starry starry night)

No one had to speak a word
For we all knew what the others learned
Everything that we ever did
Was but a way to pass the time

And the priest said:
I believe I’m a true believer now
I was a sinner but I came to see the light
The bum and me did not agree
But I must confess to jealousy

Oh, my god
Oh, my god
Yes, oh, my god
