Jacopo De Nicola's new single "Syrian Girl" is a call for peaceful coexistence and freedom in a time when the present wars and horrors will be just a distant and faded memory.



Your hair is glowing in the sun
your hand in mine so warmly bound
it's bright outside and bright inside
mid afternoon, Mid Eastern
we are free to wander anywhere
no more hatred in the stares
everyone's busy, minds their own
so it's just me and you and
My Syrian Girl

Not long ago the dogs of war
their bodies strewn across the floor
the shattered ruins, the blood, the sounds
the ugly face of Horror
came and left like morning winds
left us nothing but their wings
what was it worth, what was it for?
Yo don't ask me, I still don't
My Syrian Girl

Your eyes, glitter in the sand
your soul and mine so warmly bound
it's dark outside and bright inside
late afternoon Mid Eastern
no need to wander anywhere
Fire is burning in our stares
everyone's busy, minds their own
so it's just you and me and
My Syrian Girl

"look at the sky it's dark above
the clouds are building up again
stand tall with me against the storm
I need your help my love"
