We'll never see eye-to-eye
Until we hear with our hearts open wide
We have our differences, don't we?
In the time and the place we were raised.
In the temples and churches that taught us
Different ways.

You say that revenge is all right.
That a man must pay for his ancestors crimes
But once that old bottle is opened
And the genie let out of his cage
The rights of all others are shattered
Along the way!

One side says: "Wo wo wo...Kosovo!"
And the other side says, "La la la......Kosova!"

I didn't start out to offend you
And I'm sorry that it's turned out that way.
But there are two sides to the story,
And you don't want to hear what they are
But you want us to follow you blindly
Into war!

One side says: "La la la.........Kosova!"
And the other side says, "Wo wo wo......Kosovo!"

We'll never see eye-to-eye
Until we hear with our hearts opened wide
We have our differences don't we
In the weapons and tools that we choose
In the heartache we're willing to suffer
Or to use!

We have our differences, don't we?
In the way that we look at the world
In the stories and people we care for
Or ignore!

We have our differences, don't we?
