TWO STRANGERS

TWO STRANGERS

1 min 498 1 min 498


You and I could have shared

A drink across the table or a joke

We would have watched matches

Clapped together for a winning team


You and I could have shared

The happiness of family function

I would have gifted your son

You would have hugged my daughter


We hardly know each other

We hardly have a reason to hate

 Still today I want to blow you up

Like a savage wolf, lung for your blood


You stand there with equal frenzy

To smash my head with anger

Hungry for my blood and my death

Nothing but an animal on the hunt


Yes, you and I stand opposite

On the barbed fence of our countries

Standing and guarding the line

We are bound by duty only to kill


Tomorrow no one will remember

The blood spilt by me or you

The leaders will shake hand and mutter

Forever peace is only our motto.
