lyrics

SORROW LIVES IN THIS VILLAGE
(c) Agnes Chan, Robbie Seidman, Michael Carey

Soldiers come down
From the mountains
Children crying
Mothers screaming, shouting
Separated from the ones I love
Torn forever
From all I know of
Far from comfort
Far from hope
Too numb to dream
And nowhere to go
Hide myself beneath my skin
Conceal my humanity
Deep within

The last time I saw
Saw my mother’s face
Tears were in her eyes
Tears were in her eyes

Sorrow lives in this village
Where the men have disappeared
And the children are soldiers
And the women live in fear
Sorrow lives in this village

I was sent into the army
I was taught to kill
I was eight years old
I was eight years old

Sorrow lives in this village
Where the men have disappeared
And the children are soldiers
And the women live in fear

Sorrow lives in this village
Oh God I pray
Take me away from here
Sorrow lives in this village

Someday the world will see
One day the world will know
‘Til then the circle turns, repeats itself
And the tears they flow…

No one can remember
A time when there was peace
No one living can remember
A time when there was peace

Sorrow lives in this village
Where the men have disappeared
And the children are soldiers
And the women live in fear
Sorrow lives in this village
Oh God I pray
Take me away from here
Sorrow lives in this village

Oh God I pray…
