Healy and Juravich: Tangled in our dreams

Song for peace

Download mp3 sample

Teresa Healy

We’re singing for peace
We’re singing solidarity
Singing for courage
Singing down walls
We’ll sing without fear
And before all authority
Singing as darkness falls

As I walked along, one foggy grey morning
The cares of the world weighed on my mind
The headlines they said
There were forty-three dead
And I thought of their loved ones behind

We’re singing for peace …

How can we turn this thing over?
Who has to make up their mind?
Raise your hand in a fist
You’ll end up on a list
While the leaders go on with their war-crimes

We’re singing for peace …

Some take a stand as a witness to suffering
Do all they can to get in the way
Believe to the core in a world without war
And live to bring peace in our day

We’re singing for peace …
