Do You Hear
Do You Hear?
©2001 Phil Klein & Maria De Angelis, ASCAP
Do you hear how their joy rings no more?
There’s no spring for the children of war
The trees are all bare
In the desolate square
Disappeared are the parents of war
Do you hear all the soldiers in grief
Lost their brothers in battles so brief
The silence of arms
Hasn’t kept them from harm
Do you hear? City streets are no more…
Do you hear all the lies of the past?
Do you see, paths of glory don’t last?
Our hearts are aflame
Bloody death is no game
Do you hear? We are scarred to the core
How are we to ever find peace
When hunger for weapons won’t cease?
