Song Description

A lullaby with a fathers speculations facing a brutal reality.A soft part and a desperate part and a wishful part. Ending with a a big chorus with bag pipes, sitar and a great theme.

Story Behind the Song

When I became a father I wanted to make a lullaby. Seing this innocent girl thinking of what happens in the world it turned out to be more than sweet.

Lyrics

WISHING
Shadows from the moon on a silver curtain
You fell asleep so soon and I just sit uncertain

Am I a part of you in your secret landscape
I Wonder how dreams come true
And why the world is in such bad shape

They cry from fear in the night
They wake wih tears in the eyes
I see every girl in your mind and in my heart
Hoping for a gentle start I'm wishing
FOR EVERY LITTLE BOY
FOR EVERY LITTLE GIRL IN THE WORLD
WISH FOR WOMEN AND MEN
I'M WISHING
THAT EVERYONE WILL WAKE UP WITH A BETTER DREAM

SOLO

We have a home
We have love, no hunger
Fire when we feel alone
and family and friends to lean on

Did nobody say goodnight to Hitler
Was Jack the Ripper someone's unwanted child
What about the wars of religions and races
Why are their nightmares so real I can't sleep
I'm wishing
FOR EVERY LITTLE BOY FOR EVERY LITTLE GIRL IN THE WORLD
WISH FOR WOMEN AND MEN
I'M WISHING
THAT EVERYONE WILL WAKE UP WITH A BETTER DREAM
