Broadjam Member Reviews

Really really good, I like it all,vocals,instrumentation, makes a change to hear a good melody and a good hook and nice use of chord structure.

    - English Mike

Beautiful music and heartfelt vocals. Could be used in a film scene.

    - Jeana Potthoff
Lyrics

Mama can you open the door, I can't see my friends anymore and I'm
Scared and afraid of the dark, oh mama,
Hold me in your arms like before

So many people all in one place, I wish I knew that look on your face
I've never seen that look in your eyes Mama,
I can read the fear in your face

On the day that they came, the sun was shining,
On the day that they came, people weren't crying
On the day that they came, our lives changed for evermore

Why did they tell us a lie and why do all the mothers cry?
The men are so mean to us now, I wonder
What they'll do to us and why

Where are our possessions now? I want to brush my hair, but how?
Mama tells me things will be fine, oh mama,
What is my identity now?

On the day that they came, the sun was shining,
On the day that they came, people weren't crying
On the day that they came, our lives changed for evermore

Mama don't you let me go, I've seen the eyes of those men
Papa will you hold me tight, I want to be lost
In those eyes, Papa, no

On the day that they came, the sun was shining,
On the day that they came, people weren't crying
On the day that they came, our lives changed for evermore

On the day that they came, the sun was shining,
On the day that they came, people weren't crying
On the day that they came, our lives changed for evermore
