Nowhere to Run

"Nowhere to Run" By Linda Hays-Gibbs They run to us for help They are out of their depth Lost jobs, lost homes, lost safety and no food to eat Nowhere to hide, all is nasty and bloody feet From miles of walking to you Now, Don't know What to do Friends are enemies Unkind faces are all he sees Broken all ties cause of all the lies Only thing left to lose Are your lives Protect your babies your old and infirm Oh God, we've nowhere to turn Is there anywhere a Christian haven Some place of peace would be heaven Who started it all We just don't care When it started to fall We did all we could dare Now we must Get away from here But where to go Tell me is there no Compassion or kindness left to find Or has it all been left behind Pope says that love is the answer I need the question Just please be my brother I will be your best one If you save my children I will be your closest kindred son
