A Letter for Sudan

from by Left Passage

/

about

Written in 2007 when there were talks on the news about human rights violations in Sudan. The song was picked up by the band at the end of one of the rehearsals, somewhere in 2009. Saskia, one of the guests at the rehearsal, did the vocal parts and the rest of the band joined in. This performance was recorded on video.
Another version of the song was recorded live at a small festival and can be watched on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wC6MFNXEItg.

lyrics

Tears in the eyes, cover them don’t dry
Fear to survive, makes you strong, don’t paralyze
I bring you today
A light in the dark
To fix your strains
And show the world your mark

Scared today, uncertain for tomorrow
Fantasies decay; I can only see sorrow
You all suffered
The raping and cruelty
So many murdered
So many guilty

Looking at the stars a million miles away from our eyes
Times will change they say, but how many more will die?
Hope, I send to you a letter for Sudan
Make our worries fade like raindrops in the sun
