Where once jasmin grew
Where once children played
Our church was painted black
And the children painted red

So we fled westward bound
Nine in a vessel for two
At first they gave us hope
Now we’re a number in a speech

And we’re a long way from home
But home is a long way gone

We said lord, we trust in you
Lord come to our aid
Please guide us to places
Where we can rest our weary bones

We could pray all we want
Ask all we want
Say all we want

It’s still a long way from home
And hope is a long way gone

Can you believe in a higher power
One that loves us one and all
When your house is in tatters
And everything that matters

Is Gone
