NOTHING IS FOREVER

NOTHING IS FOREVERĀ 

We lived in a house we called our home

We lived in a house by a lemon tree

We lived in a house where mum made bread

We lived in a house at the edge of the sea


Nothing is forever

a leaf falls from the tree

the sun comes up

waves cross the sea


We didn't ask for men with guns

We didn't ask to be chased away

We didn't ask for rain to never fall

All we asked was we want to stay


Nothing is forever

a leaf falls from the tree

the sun comes up

waves cross the sea


We ran from the place we called our home

We ran from the place where the bombs fell

we ran from the place where the land was dry

All we took was the stories we tell


Nothing is forever

a leaf falls from the tree

the sun comes up

waves cross the sea


Now we are here and we call it home

Now we are here learning how to cope

Now we are here and mum makes bread

Now we are here learning how to hope


Nothing is forever

a leaf falls from the tree

the sun comes up

waves cross the sea
