Intro :
F/A

F/A
The plaza in the village
      G     
Where mission bells used to ring
   F                                    F/A
Is now crumbled to a pile of stench and ruin

Even the swallows have vanished
    G
no longer return in the spring
        F                               F/A
All the blossoms are buried ,'neath the waste

G
Out of the shadows grow hatred
          F
Along the corridor crawls fear
G
Crushed by the promise of hope
             F/A
That never returned  

[ch]Bm/D[/ch]           A#
Watched with a hawk's trained eye

[Chorus]
Am    Em   C  G   Dm
Trees grow silent fruit
Am    Em C   G     Dm
'neath a suffering sky

F/A
Those who have stayed, keep a flame
In memory of the fallen
And pass on the old rites despite the risk
But many more have left here
On mended broken wings

F/A
Turning to see your reaction
  G
A tear drop fills your eye
    F
But you protest not to give up as give in
F/A
Heading straight for the wreckage
G
Picking up a shovel and a hoe
      F                              F/A
Start putting back the bricks one by one

G
Numbers come out of the woodwork
F
Curious to see the rebirth
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]      A#
Above the swollen clouds

[Chorus]
   Am     Em    C     G   Dm 
A strange sound fills the air
  Am Em   C  G  Dm
A silence never heard 
Am  Em  C    G       Dm
Falling like blessed rain
F/A
And the swallows return
