    The Boy Who Knew How To Climb Walls

    I was just a little boy
    Running wild ‘cross the hills,
    Kicking balls, skipping meals
    And I had a friend
    He was just like a brother
    Just a bit older
    And he knew how to climb over walls

    Then the bombs came down,
    On my small village town
    As I looked around
    It was gone!
    Mama called our names
    Father never came
    Life was never the same
    From that day on

    So I ran over the roads,
    Over rocks and rubble
    Asking everybody,
    “Have you seen my friend?
    He was just like a brother
    Just a bit older
    And he used to pray.”

    Then a white-haired man
    Took me by the hand
    To a broken Mosque
    Where he lay
    He was still alive
    Eyes fixed on the sky
    As he saw my face
    He smiled
    Then he passed away
    On that long sunny day,
    As the golden rays went down
    So we dug some sand
    Buried him in that land
    Now I understand his way
    Just another wall
    Separates our souls
    One that we must all leap one day

    I can see him now, floating on the air
    Floating on the air, floating on the air
    I can see him now, floating on the air
    Floating on the air, floating on the air
    I can see him now, floating on the air…
