For the children affected by war

Lyrics

War Child

Now that the bombs are clear
And they are going back
A frightened child hides his inner fear
The war child fighting back the tears

He don’t know where his mamma’s at
He don’t know where his daddy is
He thinks that they are some-where over there
The war child fighting back the tears

He is limping home alone
Tripping over blow-up stones
His whole hometown has being destroyed
The war child’s a frightened little boy

The little girl needs her medicine
The doctors are out of insulin
(And) there’s no supplies to be found
The hospital’s a crumbled down mound

The innocent maimed by mines
Left in the land from past war times
Scared hungry children traumatised
The war child trying not to cry

The war child trying not to cry
The war child trying not to die

Now that the bombs are clear
And they are going back
A frightened child hides his inner fear
The war child fighting back the tears
