Your hair, glowing in the sun
your hand and mine so warmly bound
bright outside and bright inside
mid afternoon, Mid Eastern
Free to wander anywhere
no more hatred in the stares
they're all busy, mind their own
so it's just me and you and

My Syrian Girl

Not long ago the dogs of war
bodies strewn across the floor
shattered ruins, blood and 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 know

My Syrian Girl

Your eyes, glitter in the sand
your soul and mine warmly blend
dark outside and bright inside
late afternoon Mid Eastern
no need to wander anywhere
Fire burning in our stares
they're all busy, mind their own
so it's just you and me and

My Syrian Girl

Look up the sky is dark above
the clouds are building up again
stand tall with me against the storm
I need your help my love
