The Three of Us
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.

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

Looking down between the trees,
And the town we knew we had to leave.
For what it's worth,
We will walk the Earth til we find the things we seek.

And the king said:
I believe I'm a non-believer now.
I was a leader, but I had to leave 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 men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.

Woahhh, woahhh.
Woahhh, woahhh, woah.

They will not protect, we will fall.
They will not defend us.
We'll be left behind, we'll be left behind.

I never give a damn about the story's end,
Or even how it all began.
And the one word that I'll seek is one that I can tell myself.
And it's a long and winding road,
But if you reap the seeds you sow,
You'll see you're really not alone.

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.

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

No one had to speak a word,
For we all knew what the others learned.
And 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?bomb? and me did not agree, but I must confess of jealousy.

Oh my god, oh my god, yes, oh my god.

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.

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

Looking down between the trees,
And the town we knew we had to leave.
For what it's worth,
We will walk the Earth til we find the things we seek.

And the king said:
I believe I'm a non-believer now.
I was a leader, but I had to leave 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 men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.

Whoa, whoa.
Whoa, whoa, Whoa.

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 give a damn about the story's end,
Or even how it all began.
And the one word that I'll seek is one that I can tell myself.
And it's a long and winding road,
But if you reap the seeds you sow,
You'll see you're really not alone.

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.

There we were, the three of us,
The priest, the tramp, and I.

But reunited on that night.

And 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 of jealousy.

Oh my god, oh my god, yes, oh my god.

[Ska beat, horn solos]

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends,
I will never pretend.
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's sayin' I've sinned,
I will never repent.
