lyrics

the fall

long days of summer and lying on the ground
the sweet smell of roses
and you running round
and then blood on your cheek, blood on your hand,
blood on your tiny shoe

oh the cut will heal but all I knew

it was hard to see you fall
it was hard to see you fall
it was hard to see you fall
hard to see you fall

sun on the lemons of the holy land
a young boy is running with a stone in his hand 
then the soldiers come, soldiers come
the boy is standing tall
she found his body underneath the wall

it was hard to see him fall
it was hard to see him fall
it was hard to see him fall
hard to see him fall

late in the summer and the first day back at school
women carry flowers and the babies too

but then the strangers come, strangers come,
their hearts are hard from war
children run, children run
their blood on the floor

and it was hard to watch them fall
it was hard to watch them fall
it was hard to watch them fall
and it's still hard
how did we fall this far?
so far from the garden
she said it feels like the end today
she said it feels like the end
of the world

( palestinian folk song in arabic )

cysga di fy mhlentyn tlws
( sleep now my jewel child )
cysga di fy mhlentyn tlws

sleep now my little one
safe now my little one
dream now
