We Were Winning

I walked down the stairs

A pot of coffee in the corner

I listened to the radio

And I heard that we were winning

-------------

The soldiers danced in the streets

The women and children hugged too

But the thing that really puzzled me

Was I knew it was a defeat

-------------

I strolled through the avenue

Thinking of the people I know

Their lives wrenched from their grasp

Their history erased

-------------

So I regret to say goodbye

But we've become part of something else

And it will never end………..

-------------

Life is all that we have left

Life is all that we have left

Life is all that we have left

So hold my hand

And embrace the light

We'll never look back
