Hold On Tight
(Simone Sahyouni)

"Simone Sahyouni came to Scotland in 1989 as a refugee from the Lebanon and has been performing as a freelance classical singer in and around the UK ever since graduating from the RSAMD in 1995. She began writing songs in 2000 as a hobby and remarks 'it was interesting for me to see that most of them turned out to be protest songs of one kind or another.' Freefall, her first of three songs, is 'based on the events which took place this summer in my homeland. I was lucky that my parents were evacuated in the beginning of August but we still could do nothing for the ones left behind.' "
A thousand miles away, a nation starts to mourn
Survivors of this day, bury young and newly born
A mother's heart is torn...torn!

No one to soothe their pain, no hope to save their land
Their cries ring out in vain, I cannot understand, cannot understand

Let's end this misery, take a stand for all to see
No more apathy the change begins with you and me
Defend humanity, restore our faith in human decency..can't you see
It's down to you an me

Leaders all unite to carry on the fight, smiling through their lies
As if it's all alright, as if it's all alright
How can you sleep at night!


All we want is peace, a land to call our home
This madness has to cease , before we turn to stone
Before our hearts have turned to stone!

Requiem Aeternam...
