Lyrics

MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGTERS


AS LONG AS THERE ARE WOMEN IN THE WORLD
WHO SUFFER AS YOU DO
WE CANNOT REST WE CANNOT TURN AWAY
THERE IS MUCH MORE WE ALL CAN DO
NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO LIVE IN PAIN SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
I SEE YOUR TEARS I FEEL YOUR FEARS AS THOUGH THEY WERE MY OWN


WHEN I SEE THE WOMEN CRYING (MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
I SEE MY SISTERS CRYING (MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
I SEE MY MOTHER CRYING (MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
I SEE MY DAUGTER CRYING (MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)


YOU ALL DESERVE TO LIVE A LIFE THAT S FREE FROM HARM AND FREE FROM FEAR
THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN PEACE IS GRANTED BY THE ALMIGHTY
AND THOSE WHO WOULD COMMIT THESE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?
O FATHER BROTHER SON, WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO UNDERSTAND?


WHEN YOU SEE THE WOMEN CRYING (MOTHERS, SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
YOU SEE YOUR SISTERS CRYING (MOTHERS SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
YOU SEE YOUR MOTHER CRYING (MOTHERS SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS)
YOU SEE YOUR DAUGHTER CRYING (MOTHERS SISTERS AND DAUGHTERS


TELL ME WHY? IN A WORLD WHERE HI TECHNOLOGY IS ALL AROUND
TELL ME WHY? IN A WORLD WHERE CURES CAN BE FOUND
I WANNA KNOW WHY? THOUGH WE HAVE PASSED THE SPEED OF SOUND
WE CANNOT EVEN GUARANTEE THE SAFETY OF OUR
MOTHERS, SISTERS, AND DAUGHTERS?

STAND TALL (HELP IS ON THE WAY)
BE STRONG (HELP IS ON THE WAY)
YOU ARE NOT ALONE (HELP IS ON THE WAY)
IT WONT BE LONG (HELP IS ON THE WAY)
