INTRO (4 times) 

I got a letter from Louise 
she says that things are getting better 
Theres more life on the streets 
since the calling of the ceasefire 
People are going out more 
all the pubs are jumping 
Every one is trying  
and theyre hopeful for the future 

And the guns are locked away now 
please God, I dont care whose God 
I hope theyre locked away forever 

VERSE 2     
She says shes keeping busy 
and theres loads of things for doing 
Shes moved into a new house 
and times just flying by 
She says I should come up again 
maybe for the weekend 
she says theyre throwing a party 
that'll last beyond the dawn 


VERSE 3      
Halloween is on the way she says 
she writes about the harvest moon 
She says it will be lucky 
with its feeling of re-birth 
And i'm going up to see her 
for the first time since the ceasefire 
I'll pack my melodies and poetry 
and place them in her arms
