A child is born on a battlefield

A soldier boy falls to his knees

And a woman cries in ioy and pain

When will we live in peace again?
A child is born where the wild wind blows

In a country torn from the South to the North.
And a family runs from day to day

When will we see our home again?

When will we see the simple truth

The only thing that's worth a damn.
The life of a child is more than a forest

The life of a child is more than a border
Could ever be.

A child is born in the desert sun
A tiny life has just begun

And a mother cries for her hungry babe

When will I feed mv boy again?
A child is born to an ordinary home

East or West
It could be anyone

But we all want to know
Will my child survive te see the day

When we will be secure againz

When will we see the simple truth

That the only thing that's worth a damn.
The life of a child is more than a forest

The life of a child is more that a border

The life of a child is more than religion

The life of a child is only a heartbeat from eternity.
We must believe for the sake of humanity
We must believe -
For the sake of humanity
We must believe.
