Songs of hope via guitar - Brothers in Arms



A song of hope, mostly beyond words ... appreciate the feeling in the musicians, especially the guitar solo.



Mark Knopfler at his best, reciting a most beautiful, meaningful poem through his guitar.


  Brothers In Arms (Berlin 2007)


lyrics



Mark Knopfler plays Gibson Les Paul guitar
Mark Knopfler - Gibson guitar
These mist covered mountains
 Are a home now for me
 But my home is the lowlands
 And always will be
 Someday you'll return to
 Your valleys and your farms
 And you'll no longer burn to be Brothers in arms

 Through these fields of destruction
 Baptisms of fire
 I've witnessed your suffering
 As the battle raged higher
 And though they did hurt me so bad
 In the fear and alarm
 You did not desert me My brothers in arms

 There's so many different worlds
 So many different suns
 And we have just one world
 But we live in different ones


 Now the sun's gone to hell
 and The moon's riding high
 Let me bid you farewell
 Every man has to die
 But it's written in the starlight
 And every line in your palm
 We are fools to make war On our brothers in arms
