ANY MINUTE NOW
C. SHIROCK

Covered queen, broken soul
Throwing words hurt more than stone
Covered queen, in angel’s throe
Carrying more than yours to hold

Lay down your weapons at the door now
Lay down your weapons at the door

Any minute now, you’ll hurt no more
Any minute now

In the center of it all, it’s you and I
In the center of it all, it’s you and I

Covered queen, on dark city streets
How I looked, but I could not see
Under southern skies, and her raging sea
In lover’s eyes, find hope unseen

Lay down your weapons at the door now
Lay down your weapons at the door

Any minute now, you’ll hurt no more
Any minute now, you’ll hurt no more

In the center of it all, it’s you and I
In the center of it all, it’s you and I

Would you talk to me
As you did before the world
Talk to me once more
Have you eyes to see
All that was before
Begin again, and see once more

In the center of it all, it’s you and I
In the center of it all, it’s you and I

Any minute now, peace will come
With the writing on the wall
You’ll hurt no more
In the center of it all
