An elegy to those who died on June the 4th, 1989.

L'autore sembrerebbe essere uno sconosciuto musicista, il testo l'ho trovato su Youtube
You who stood at Tiananmen
And waited for the tanks to come
You who stood your ground as one
You will never see your homes again

One was there, just 15 years
He stood, he waited with the rest
He did not know, could not have guessed
A bullet changed his life to death
And erased his name

In death's shadow, hand in hand
Though the world in outrage wept for you
You were on your own when they came for you

No one heard you when you screamed
But your cries re-echo eternally
You wanted justice, wanted to be free

Mother pleads for daughter's life
A bayonet blade is her reply
A sister weeps as her brother dies
And hope is shredded into pain

In death's shadow, hand in hand
Though the world in outrage wept for you
You were on your own when they came for you

And no one heard you when you screamed
But your cries re-echo eternally
You wanted justice, wanted to be free

In death's shadow, hand in hand
Though the world in outrage wept for you
You were on your own when they came for you
They came for you and

No one heard you when you screamed
And though your bodies fell to dust
Your voices now are strong to us
Re-echo round us now

You who stood at Tiananmen
You will never see your homes again
