Lyrics
Artist's Notes

This song was heavily influenced by watching some of the terrible news stories that have hit our screens in the last 12 months or so, particularly some of the tragic cases of child refugees who have drowned trying to escape the war in Syria. It's saying that sometimes the sadness is too much, leaves you feeling helpless, and you just have to hold onto the person you love.

Lyrics

Bring your body close to me

 

(Verse 1)

 

Somewhere in the world
Right now
Someone's holding peace talks,
Talking 'bout
Laying down their guns.

(Verse 2)

 

And somewhere in the world
Right now
Someone's dropping warheads,
Talking ?bout
Raining down their bombs.

(Pre Chorus)

 

Yet another conflict
I've got battle fatigue,
Sandbags round my sofa
For the latest blitzkrieg.

(Chorus)

 

There are wars we can fight
And wars we can't win
So choose your battles carefully.
There are terrors in the night
That go when we turn on the light
Baby, bring your body close to me.

(Bridge)

 

Tiny body bags

 

On a silver sand beach,

 

Seems that compassion

 

Is sadly out of reach.

 

I turned on my TV 
And I don't like what I see,
Grieving parents who
Look a lot like you and me.

 

(Verse 3)

 

Somewhere in the world
Right now
Someone's making lo-ve,
Talking sweet nothings
In a lover's ear.

 

(Verse 4)
And somewhere in the world
Right now
Someone's throwing insults,
Hurling such venom
Causing so many tears.

(Pre Chorus)

 

Yet another conflict
I've got battle fatigue,
Sandbags round my sofa
For the latest blitzkrieg.

(Chorus)

 

There are wars we can fight
And wars we can't win
So choose your battles carefully.
There are terrors in the night
That go when we turn on the light
Baby, bring your body close to me.

 

Yes, baby bring your body close to me ?
