lyrics

PAY RESPECT
lyrics by Vasudha Harte

how will I ever know
the magnitude of your sorrow
and what it’s like to be a refugee
in your own country

how can I make amends
for horrendous crimes against the innocent
you have so much love for the land and all its living things
i want to live that way too

i want to pay respect
to the people of this land
i bow my head in sorrow
at the sins of the white man
pay respect
to the creatures of this land
i open up my heart to you
and I say come take my hand

how will I ever know
the magnitude of your sorrow
and what it’s like to be a refugee
in our country
how can I make amends

pay respect
to the people of this land
i bow my head in sorrow
at the sins of the white man
pay respect
to the creatures of this land
i open up my heart to you
and I say come take my hand

pay respect
to the children
to the creatures
to the people of this land
pay respect
to the children
to the creatures
to the people of this land

i open up my heart to you
i open up my heart to you
i open up my heart to you
and I say come take my hand
