What about all the sorrow?
What about all the guns?
What about all the people who fight in the streets when they should be as one?
What about the old promise,the old promise we made?
There were thoughts that we used to keep deep in our hearts, now are they going to fade?
We could leave, (and) give up giving
We could leave… but we won’t
It’s a game that we’re playing
gambling with soul and nerves
Where’s the chance we must give every minute to peace that our children deserve?
It’s a merry-go-round
that sometimes spins too fast
But it’s the only world that we have and, for sure, without love it won’t last
We should live here without worrying
We can change things for good
Can’t you see that there’s no need to hide
When we stand right by each other’ side
There’s no point in “conquer” anything if you need to “divide”
What about these young women?
What about these young men?
