The Refugee Crisis

1.

Ordinary people who don’t have a life
Ordinary people who don’t have a voice
Leaving Iraq, leaving Iran
Leaving Syria, Afganistan

Chorus
And they’re coming to Europe
And they’re coming to Europe

2.
Ordinary people who cross land and sea
Ordinary people who want to be free
Escaping guns, escaping bombs
Bread and water, freedom songs

3.
700 people The frightened refugee
700 people who drown in the sea
Fanily photos, left them behind
Fleeing gunmen, step on a mine

Chorus

4.
Ordinary people, cannot reach their goal
Ordinary people, left in the cold
Water cannon, border control
Those politicians don’t have a soul

Chorus
