Mother doesn't know where love has gone 
She says it must be youth 
That keeps us feeeling strong 
See it in her face, that's turned to ice 
And when she smiles she shows 
The lines of sacrifice 
And now I know what they're saying 
When the sun begins to fade 
And we made our love on wasteland 
And through the barricades 
Father made my history 
He fought for what he thought 
Would set us somehow free 
He tought me what to say in school 
I learned off by heart 
But now that's torn in two 
And now I know what they're saying
In the music of the parade 
We made our love on wasteland 
And through the barricades 
Born on different sides of life 
We feel the same 
And feel all of this strife 
So come to me when I'm asleep 
We'll cross the line 
And dance upon the street 
And now I know what they're saying 
When the drums begin to fade 
We made our love on wasteland 
And through the barricades 
Oh, turn around and I'll be there
There's a scar through my heart
But I'll bare it again 
I thought we were the human race 
But we were just another border-line-case 
And the stars reach down and tell us 
That there's always one escape 
I don't know where love has gone 
And in this trouble land 
Desperation keep us strong 
Fridays child is full of soul 
With nothing left to lose 
There's everything to go 
And now I know what they're are saying
It's a terrible beauty we've made
So we make our love on wasteland 
And through the barricades
Now I know what they're are saying
As hearts go to their graves
We made our love on wasteland 
And through the barricades.
