When We Walked Like Brothers
As we walk on by, looking in each otherís eye,
do you remember when we passed like brothers?
Now in passing by we are more like strangers,
more like soldiers sent to fight.
Drifting in the night, not caring who our brothers are,
just another stranger,
just another soldier in the night.
Take me back, back to that place we use to be,
bring back the magic of that place,
where we could walk like brothers.
Starry nights where the children dream of magic moments,
and me and you walk side by side, just like brothers.
Another sleepless night,
sounds of thunder crashing to the ground,
bombs destroy another dream, and another life.
How can this go on, people dying in the fight,
all our brothers are dying in the night.
Children say a prayer,
praying for peace on the starry night,
to put an end to this sleepless night and another senseless fight.
Oh take me back to that special place,
when we walked side by side just like brothers.
Another day has come, fighters flying overhead,
looking for their mark, to end another life.
Just look around, change is coming on,
another jet takes to flight, just to kill his brother.
Children say a prayer, when will this day end?
When will that day come when we can walk side by side just like brothers again.
