Tsunami

by Cindy Kleinstuber Blevins (music) and Dwight Blevins (lyrics)

Genre: Folk

Lyrics

There are words that can’t be spoken
Grief and pain that few have known
Mud and sticks, the great tsunami,
Quake and floods that come ashore,

There they lived to raise their children,
There they asked for nothing more,
But the massive mounds of rubble
Took the lives like bombs of war.

Oh Japan, Japan don’t ask us
Why this came upon your door
Comes the time of cherry blossoms
Petals stained, in grief we mourn.

Wails and screams to heights of heaven,
World aghast the silent roar,
Finding words for all that’s broken,
Never was like this before.

Earth that moved, cold that shivers,
Wall of water to the sky,
Depths to fill a thousand rivers with
tears of ten thousand goodbyes.

Oh Japan, Japan don’t ask us
why this came upon your door,
Comes the time of cherry blossoms,
Petals stained in grief we mourn.

Oh Japan, Japan don’t ask us
why this came upon your door,
Comes the time of cherry blossoms,
Petals stained in grief’s decor.
