lyrics

I grew up in an orphanage
Near the house where my family lived
My mother couldn’t feed all my brothers and me
There were no other alternatives

Now I vowed to never
Let my children experience
The same kind of life
A childhood like mine

I moved to a country
Where women were allowed to study
A chance to break free from a life in poverty
And of what was expected of me
Expected of me

I graduated as a nurse
The same year as the war broke out
And after my second child was born
The babies' father left

Young mother
Raising children on your own

Shell shocked
I treated the weak and the wounded
Snipers outside the hospital grounds
Seems I’ll be once again uprooted

An unacceptable condition
Not what I had in mind of the future
Babies depending on me
As the civil war intensified
