Even If

Even If
There are guns
And violence
There is hurt
And heartache

Even if
The sun won’t shine
Or the river runs dry
The land divides
And aliens reign

Even if
You see a child
Looking for her mother
Or a homeless man
In every corner

Even if
The music stops playing
And tears don’t stop rolling
A pall of gloom befalls
To a man’s slaying

The hope is still alive
The dreams they are to stay.
As a stranger holds a cold hand
As a neighbour wipes dry a child’s tears
And a fallen hero’s life you praise
For as long as the music still plays in your ears
I will keep writing my songs
And Love. There will be love.
Even if.
