Children in bare feet

When I’m alone at night I dream them Trembling in my sleep And everywhere I go I see them I could almost weep

I will not sing you a requiem though We walk the same street Even with my eyes closed I see them Children in bare feet

I look away but they’re here beside me I look away but they reach inside me I look away but they’re all I can see Children in bare feet

When I’m alone at night I dream them Fragile as the dawn And everywhere I go I feel them Traveling along

This is no time for a requiem We've all learned to take the heat. Even with my eyes closed I see them Children in bare feet Children in bare feet

Show me a place where no pain can find me Let the last tide rise Show me the heaven madmen deny me Children, lift your eyes Children, lift your eyes

I look away but they’re here beside me I look away but they reach inside me I look away but they’re all I can see Children in bare feet Children in bare feet Children in bare feet Trembling in my dreams
