Two worlds, one planet
One sky, no hope
My heart drowns in sorrow
Knowing you are out there on your own

I chase my future
You left your past
Not knowing if tomorrow
You will be free at last

Facing death on open waters
All your hope is running dry
And I struggle with the never ending why

I’m trying to write to you a song of peace and hope
Of love that’s strong enough to save you
But when I think about the pain with which you cope
I can’t find the words although I try to
I can’t find the words although I try

Few words, no promise
Much space, no room
You search for shelter
As the walls close in on you

We see your desperation
On our tv screens
We speak of reaching out to you
But we don’t know what that means

Cause by the time you reach our doorstep
Miles and miles away from war
There are fences that were never here before

I’m trying to write to you a song of peace and hope
Of love that’s strong enough to save you
But when I think about the pain with which you cope
I can’t find the words although I try to
I can’t find the words although I try

It’s bigger than we are prepared for
So let’s not waste another day
On defending what’s not threatened
Or on purposeless debate
Cause by love we are united
In the end we’re all the same

Here’s my song to you, it’s what I want to say
We’re all in this together
I think about you every minute of the day
And hope that soon things will get better
