Weekly Song: We Wait and We Wonder

on December 4, 2015

In the recent events of terrorism and school shootings, I thought to share this Phil Collin’s song that he wrote in the 90’s regarding the high terrorism in Britain. Like Phil states, “We stand… disbelieving”; how could someone “take a life of one…killing the old, the innocent, the young”? These violent people have no compassion, no sense of love. “When will it be over now, how soon?”

We just “wait and we wonder how (could) this happen”?

 

We stand, hang our heads disbelieving
Then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong
Oh we wonder just what must they be thinking
To take a life of one so young

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How far must they go to prove to you?

We wait and we wonder how this happened
Killing the old, the innocent, the young
While sons follow in fathers footsteps not understanding
Oh that what they do could somehow be so wrong

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How far must they go to prove to you?
So we will wait and we’ll wonder

No regrets, no forgiveness, no compassion
These brave heroes only know to hit and run
Slowly my sadness turns to rage and we wonder
How can these scars ever heal when all is said and done?

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How many tears must fall to prove to you?
Please tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
And how far must they go to prove to you?

So we wait and we wonder
Yes, we’ll wait and we’ll wonder
We’ll wait, we’ll wait and we’ll wonder
Yes, we’ll wait, we will wait and we’ll wonder
Yes, we’ll wait [Incomprehensible]
We’ll wait and wonder
Yes, we’ll wait and we’ll wonder
