Our city was there

Music & lyrics by Emilie Blom

 

I imagine an other us in the wreckage of our life

I imagine an other us in the wreckage of our life

we rush put on our clothes and leave the place behind

people weep in the hate-filled air men flee without their wives

children crying out for help are running for their lives

 

A loud explosion in my head

 

Look at them fighting our city was there

reduced to rubble smoke in the air

we’re scared and we’re angry where shall we go

does anyone care will anyone know

 

I imagine an other us hiding in the woods

they load us on a meat truck and take us for our goods

heading for the ideal world where everything is free

waiting for a smuggler in the shade of the trees

 

A loud explosion in my head

 

I imagine an other us in the wreckage of our life

shoulder to shoulder we’re crossing the sea

I turn and face the empty space where you sat next to me

people mumble empty prayers scared for their lives

children crying out for help are drowning before my eyes

A loud explosion in my head

 

Look at them fighting our city was there

reduced to rubble smoke in the air

we’re scared and we’re angry where shall we go

does anyone care will anyone know

I belong somewhere somewhere I don’t

I belong somewhere I won’t
