Somewhere a girl strikes a match

and lifts the heavy brass latch

tiptoes out barefoot and runs

freely towards the hazy horizon

Somewhere a little boy hides

his innocent eyes witness the fight

not knowing whether he will survive

he prays to God for dear life

Somewhere a man returns home

he pauses at the front door

he hears a scream and a cry

and the whisper of a goodbye

Somewhere a mother cries

on the grave where her son lies

who died fighting bravely

at the hands of the enemy
