People Help The People
Cherry Ghost Lyrics


God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart
I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
Those hardfaced Queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
A Fiery throng of muted angels
Giving love and getting nothing back

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding, in that world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies
A thousand slowly dying sunsets
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess the loneliness came knocking
No on needs to be alone, oh save me

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

we should just appreciate this song without comparing whose version is better. Personally, Both is amazing and have different personas. I just love the meaning of this song.

James Taleporos

No. This version is the definitive and best version. Lyrics sang by the person who wrote them, who felt them...Birdy was 15 at the time, how could she possibly relate? Her version was just a good karaoke cover, nothing more.

@billy M kirkwood It's very rare that I prefer a cover over an original tbh no matter how good the cover.

Birdy's is a bit sad and makes you feel nostalgic.
This one is faster and heart-warming, more like a cheer song. :)

Bart Bbb

Nothing against Birdy, but the original is the one. The one from Cherry Ghost just sounds true.

@Eleonora Allocati Simon is my second cousin so I have to agree!.. 😊

What the fuck?? Birdy's song it's just a recycled song, This one give emotions, Birdy sings like a lot of girls, not so original
