Enola Gay

Enola Gay, a distant angel on a summer's day.
Oh oh and Robert's sigh, he put his signature upon a lie.

These games you play, they're gonna end in more than tears someday.
Aha Enola Gay, it shouldn't ever have to end this way.

It's eight fifteen, and that's the time that it's always been.
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you're coming home.

Enola Gay, a mother proud of little boy today.
Aha the kiss you give is never ever gonna fade away.

Enola Gay, but did it really have to end this way?
Another sun, to bring the world into another dawn.

It's eight fifteen, and that's the time that it's always been.
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you're coming home.

Enola Gay, a mother proud of little boy today.
Aha the kiss you give is never ever gonna fade away.

Enola Gay by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (1980); Paul Humphreys, Andy McClusky, Martin Cooper, Malcolm Holmes. I altered their lyrics slightly to record my own version of their song.
