lyrics

lyrics:
streets are empty
ruins aplenty
hopes left out to dry
fear for safety
lucky if maybe
we get out of here alive

holding our breath for the grace of mercy
holding our breath pleading for security
holding our breath trying to keep our dignity
holding our breath all longing to be free

danger lurking
so undeserving
trying just to make sense of the pain
can you help us?
we don't mean to be a burden
the matter is not by choice

holding our breath for the grace of mercy
holding our breath pleading for security
holding our breath trying to keep our dignity
holding our breath all longing to be free

oh can't you spare a little bit of humanity?
oh can't you spare a little bit of decency?
oh can't you tell it's all for our lives that we flee?
oh can't you tell we just want to be free?

holding our breath for the grace of mercy
holding our breath pleading for security
holding our breath trying to keep our dignity
holding our breath all longing to be free
