Song Lyrics

Right now, our heart is with a woman, who, like Dr. King, and who like Nelson Mandela,
And who like the heroes on the streets of Iran, is fighting for equality, in non-violent ways,
Fighting for freedom and equality, she has lived the best part of 20 years under house arrest
In her native Burma, her only crime is that, were she free to face an election,
She would win that election…her only crime
So tonight, from Zagreb in the West Balkans, we sing for Aung San Suu Kyi

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams be realized
If the thundercloud passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain down on she

Wo-ho-ho…
Wo-ho-ho
For the people of Burma, if you have her picture
Take it out
If you have her mask, put it on
Let her face be your face tonight
Aung San Suu Kyi
Message of love, message of love

Do you hear her?

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it’s a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Walk on, walk on
What you’ve got they cannot steal it
No, they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You’re packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You should have flown away, a singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Walk on, walk on
What you’ve got they can’t deny it
Can’t sell it or buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

Well I know it aches
Your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Volunteers
Come on out now

Home…
Hard to know what it is, if you’ve never had one
Home…
Hard to say what it is, if you have a sad one
Home…
That’s where the hurt is

Well I know it aches, your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on, walk on
Walk on

Lift her up, lift her up

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind
Leave it behind
You gotta leave it behind
Leave it behind

Walk on
Walk on
Walk on
Walk on

And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone
Alone

(Alright Evie)
(Alright John)
(How are you?)
(John…go to bed)

Thank you
