Chris de Burgh "The Simple Truth (A Child Is Born)" paroles

A child is born on a battlefield
A soldier boy falls to his knees
And a woman cries in joy and pain
When will we live in peace again?

A child is born where the wild wind blows
In a country torn from the south to the north
And a family runs from day to day
When will we see our home again?

When will we see the simple truth
The only thing that's worth a damn

The life of a child is more than a forest
The life of a child is more than a border
Could ever be

A child is born in the desert sun
A tiny life has just begun
And a mother cries for her hungry babe
When will I feed my boy again?

A child is born to an ordinary home
East or west, it could be anyone
But we all wanna know:
Will my child survive to see the day
When we will be secure again?

When will we see the simple truth
That the only thing that's worth a damn

The life of a child is more than a forest
The life of a child is more than a border
The life of a child is more than religion
The life of a child is only a heartbeat from eternity
We must believe, for the sake of humanity
Oh, we must believe

For the sake of humanity, we must believe
