«Homeland»

Tekst: Tom Pacheco    Musikk: Tom Pacheco

Have you ever been homeless
Have you ever been lost
When you know where your home is
But can’t get across
Do you dream of the orange groves
Where your grandfathers lived
Have you suffered such sorrow
That it’s hard to forgive…. And


Cry, Cry, Cry, as the refugees wait
Shut your eyes to their sorrow
Shut your ears to their fate, and
Try try try, they just won’t go away
May the Palestine people
Have a homeland one day

To be scattered like ashes
In the winds of the earth
With all dignity shattered
With all feelings of worth
Living life like a Gypsy
On the road on the run
With the hills of your history
Close, but far as the sun.


Cry, Cry, Cry, as the refugees wait
Shut your eyes to their sorrow
Shut your ears to their fate, and
Try try try, they just won’t go away
May the Palestine people
Have a homeland one day



A people of culture
Of genius and heart
Mathematics and science
And grace in the arts
Caught between Hamas
And their rocket assaults
And each settlement growing
Till there’s no land at all
