Spandau Ballet – Through the Barricades

Through the Barricades es el quinto álbum de la banda inglesa Spandau Ballet. Fue publicado el 15 de julio de 1986 a través de Epic Records.

La letra de la canción que lleva el nombre del LP está inspirada en el amor que prevaleció un joven durante el Conflicto de Irlanda del Norte y por la muerte de uno de sus miembros.

Mother doesn’t know where love has gone,
she says it must be youth that keeps us feeling 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 as our 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.
They taught me what to say in school,
I learned it off by heart but now that’s torn in two.
And now I know what they’re saying in the music of the parade,
and we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades.

Born on different sides of life,
but we feel the same and feel all of this strife,
so come to me when I’m asleep and we’ll cross the line and danceupon the streets.
And now I know what they’re saying as the drums begin to fade,
and we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades.

Oh, turn around and I’ll be there,
well there’s a scar right through my heart but I’ll bare itagain.
Oh, I thought we were the human race but we were just anotherborderline case,
and the stars reach down and tell us that there’s always oneescape.
Oh, I don’t know where love has gone,
and in this troubled land desperation keeps us strong.
Friday’s child is full of soul,
with nothing left to lose there’s everything to go.
And now I know what they’re saying,
it’s a terrible beauty we’ve made,
so we make our love on wasteland and through the barricades.
And now I know what they’re saying as our hearts go to theirgraves,
and we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades.
