We could have run
And tried to hide.
But I promised Martin
I'd stand by his side.
The fear of death, hatred and pain.
He could oppress by peaceful change.
We could have tried
To run and hide.
But either way
He would have died.
So I gave to you my dream.
And carried on in peaceful means.
Now I join my love so true.
And leave this Dream Of Peace to you....
