lyrics

Ameena

Sangatte Calais, Christmas Eve
The middle of the night
A 12 foot dinghy
I was 17 yrs old
As we headed towards the lights

Oh, the wind
Oh, the waves
Oh, the darkness

All a means to an end....To find a new Home

We fled Iran, then from Turkey to Greece
3 months in Calais to get the green light
How much would it be, to risk our lives at sea
6000 pounds... the man he said 6000 pounds

Oh, the wind
Oh, the waves
Oh, the darkness

All a means to an end
To find Home... Home...Home...To find a new Home

Some say we’re not welcome
Some say we’ve no choice
With no money, with no voice

26,000 deaths and rising.
