Lyrics:

Open your eyes, you’re still here

Still safe, at peace in this world

So great, you’re free

You don’t have to fight for your life

But just say, just say

There’s fire from the sky

And you’re burning alive

 

Why all this pain

And poison in her mind

What can you change

When hatred made her blind

Soldiers, no reason to look into her eyes

No one to hold her

No one who really cares

 

Lifeless expressions

Destroyed all conceptions

For children in the street

Who’s there to help you

When all is forgotten and

Torn apart by fear

No one to hold her

No one who really cares

 

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

 

The struggle for power

That grows by the hour

Like the blood beneath her feet

Dispering with heartache

There must be somebody

To help her in such need

No one to hold her

No one who really cares

 

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

 

Open your eyes, you’re still here

Still safe, at peace in this world

So great, you’re free

You don’t have to

Fight for your life

War child

 

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

No war child

Oh, please don’t cry

Oh, no war child

No war child
