All the years I spent in this place
The friends I knew here
I loved every face
I loved the smoke, the heat, and the noise
But the profits too small
For the black-suited boys
Oh angel, it's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up, home by home

[Chorus]
Take it away, take it away
In this place, I will lay my life down
In this place, I will let you carry me
As I age so my learning grows
I still touch the vision
I still smell the rose in this place

All the years I lived in this place
The people I knew here
I loved every face
I loved the parties, the funerals, and fights
The supermarket needs my land
I have no rights
Oh angel, it's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up, home by home

[Chorus]

All the years I spent in this place
The childeren we raised here
I loved this country, the land of my birth
But how much am I wanted?
How much am I worth?
Oh angel, it's coming down stone by stone
It's breaking up, home by home

[Chorus]
