I Come And Stand At Every Door - Lyrics by This Mortal Coil


Lyrics
I come and stand at every doorbut no-one hears my silent breath
I knock and yet remain unseenfor I am dead, for I am dead
I'm only seven although I've diedin Hiroshima long ago
I'm seven now as I was thenwhen children die they do not growmy hair was ________, my _______________
_my eyes grew dim, my eyes grew blinddeath came and turned my bones to dustand that was scattered by the wind [the wind, the wind]I need no food, i need no rice
I need no sleep, nor even bread
I ask for nothing for myselffor I am dead, for I am deadall that I ask is that for peaceyou fight today, you fight to dieso that the children of this worldmay live and grow, and laugh and play
