SONG FOR GAZA (We will NOT Go Down)

Dari milis tetangga :

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)
Composed by Michael Heart) Copyright 2009

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they're dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who's wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

Cahaya putih yang membutakan mata
Menyala terang di langit Gaza malam ini
Orang-orang berlarian untuk berlindung
Tanpa tahu apakah mereka masih hidup atau sudah mati

Mereka datang dengan tank dan pesawat
Dengan berkobaran api yang merusak
Dan tak ada yang tersisa
Hanya suara yang terdengar di tengah asap tebal

Kami tidak akan menyerah
Di malam hari, tanpa perlawanan
Kalian bisa membakar masjid kami, rumah kami dan sekolah kami
Tapi semangat kami tidak akan pernah mati
Kami tidak akan menyerah
Di Gaza malam ini

Wanita dan anak-anak
Dibunuh dan dibantai tiap malam
Sementara para pemimpin nun jauh di sana
Berdebat tentang siapa yg salah & benar

Tapi kata-kata mereka sedang dalam kesakitan
Dan bom-bom pun berjatuhan seperti hujam asam
Tapi melalui tetes air mata dan darah serta rasa sakit
Anda masih bisa mendengar suara itu di tengah asap tebal

Dear friends,

I have been overwhelmed by the warmth and the friendship you have all given me in response to my song for Gaza, "We Will Not Go Down". I am doing my best to go through your numerous messages, emails and comments, and ask you to kindly bear with me until I am able to do so. Please forgive me if I am not able to respond to each and everyone of you; but please also know that I really appreciate your messages.

My original intention to donate proceeds from the sale of the MP3 to charity has been complicated by technical matters; therefore, I have decided to make the song available free of charge. I would like to request that after downloading the song from this page, you kindly donate directly to a charity or an organization dedicated to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people. Worthy of note is UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), which has been helping Palestinian refugees since their dispossession in 1949. Please click here to donate through them: http://www.un.org/unrwa/

Thank you for your continued encouragement of my work as a musician, for your purchases of my CD, and for spreading the song, the video and the message as you have been doing. I am grateful for every demonstration of support I have received from you, and for every thought and prayer that has gone to the people of Gaza.
