Children Of The World
(Eileen Penman)


[2007]
Lyrics and music by Eileen Penman

'I wrote this song because of my horror at the war in Lebanon and a feeling that only the power of ordinary people and not politicians could end war and bring about peace in the world.' (Eileen Penman)
The road to Peace seems a million miles away
And war's killing innocent children day by day
The weeping of the women, the tears of the men
How long, how long till Peace comes again
How long, how long till Peace comes again..

Homes that once were lived in, now burnt to the ground
The shrieking of the missiles through the countryside resounds
There's blood on the hands of Blair, Bush and friends
How long, how long, till the killing's at an end
How long, how long, till the killing's at an end

Peace must be won by the peoples of the world
Forward then together, our banners we'll unfurl…
It's young and old, black, brown and white
How long, how long till Peace is in sight
How long, how long till Peace is in sight

We're marching now with Peace in our hearts
Heavy with sorrow, anger and disgust
That such death and destruction can be waged by humankind
How long, how long till Peace can be found
How long, how long till Peace can be found

Peace based on justice is what we're marching for
An end to occupation, an end to bloody war
No more the vile invaders polluting all our lands
How long, how long till Freedom's at hand
How long, how long till Freedom's at hand

Don't hesitate, you know the road to Peace is long
Shoulder to shoulder, united we are strong
Don't ever be deceived by the poodles and their lies
Hold on, hold on for Peace is the prize
Hold on, hold on for Peace is the prize

Hold on, hold on
For Peace is the prize.
