The music was inspired by Debussy's 'Voiles', the lyrics by the displaced people around the world having to flee their homes due to armed conflict.

Lyrics

Somewhere


If I broke the skin, spilled blood on this land
Toiled the parched earth, worked the clay with my hands
Will the sound of children rise again
Bring the spark back to your eyes again

Will these damp walls speak of laughter and joy
Speak of life beneath the dust and the toys
Memories broken, strewn across the floor
Left in haste behind an open door

Will we find somewhere
Somewhere we belong
Will I see you there
Will our love be strong

Will the weight we bear
In our hearts be gone
Will we find somewhere
Somewhere we belong

Gone the house so full of laughter and friends
Where we drank and danced like it wouldn’t end
Now we search the eyes of little girls
For what it takes to fix this broken world

Red and yellow spices mix with the sand
Shoulders hold the dam up until they can’t
Who will clean the faces of the dead
When this dried-up river washes red

Will we find somewhere
Somewhere we belong
Will I see you there
Will our love be strong

Will the weight we bear
In our hearts be gone
Will we find somewhere
Somewhere we belong
