Coles Corner
Richard Hawley Lyrics


Hold back the night from us,
Cherish the light for us,
Don't let the shadows hold back the dawn.

Cold city lights glowing,
The traffic of life is flowing,
Out over the rivers and on into dark.

I'm going down town where there's music,
I'm going where voices fill the air,
Maybe there's someone waiting for me
With a smile and a flower in her hair

[Chorus:]
I'm going down town where there's people
The loneliness hangs in the air.
With no-one there real waiting for me,
No smile, no flower nowhere.

Cold city lights glowing,
The traffic of life is flowing,
Out over the rivers and on into dark

Hold back the night from us,
Cherish the light for us,
Don't let the shadows hold back the dawn.

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Hold back the night

The Cole's Corner equivalent would have been the Dickie Lewis statue. What a fantastic album this is, I've just picked it up on CD.

Pete Moore

@Ezequiel Montero You may find it on the BBC Sounds app. The program is called Master tapes , and should still be available to listen too. Good luck in finding it.

Ezequiel Montero

@Pete Moore Is it in here o where i could find it?

Pete Moore

I would have to say, that I have found every, song or album that has Richard Hawley on it, is absolutely first class. Check out his master tapes programme on radio 4. Just lovely ❤
