TITLE: Walls and Windows
Lyrics and Chords

Did you sing your children lullabies to calm their fears at night?
Did you hold them gently 'til they went to sleep?
Did you plant in them the seeds of hope for new and better lives?
Did you make them promises you couldn't keep?

/ A - D A / - - E - / A - D A / - - E - /

Do you think of me as enemy and could you call me friend?
Or will we let our differences destroy us in the end?
The wall that stands between us could be a window too
When I look into the mirror I see you

/ D A D A / D A D E - / A - D A / - E A - /

Do you have sons who fight for peace the way I'm told mine do?
Do they send you photographs from foreign lands?
Do you chill to see the missiles and do they haunt your dreams?
Do you wonder whose the power, whose the hands?


Oh may we live to see the day when walls of words and fear
No longer stand between the truth and dreams
When walls of windows rise into the darkness and we dare
To look into the mirror and see peace
