"Red Hill Mining Town" (2017 mix)

From father to son the blood runs thin
See faces frozen still against the wind
The seam is split, the coal face cracked
The lines are long, there's no going back
Through hands of steel and heart of stone
Our labour day has come and gone

And you leave me holding on
In Red Hill Town, see the lights go down on
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to

The glass is cut, the bottle run dry
Our love runs cold in the caverns of the night
We're wounded by fear, injured in doubt
I can lose myself, you I can't live without

Yeah, you keep me holding on
In Red Hill Town, see the lights go down on
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
On to

We scorch the earth, we set fire to the sky
We stoop so low to reach so high
A link is lost, the chain undone
We wait all day for the night to come
And it comes like a hunter, child

I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
Love slowly stripped away
Love has seen its better day
I’m hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
All that’s left to hold on to
All that’s left to hold on to
All that’s left to hold on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
All that’s left to hold on
Hold on
Lights go out on Red Hill
