We see a glimpse on the telly as they pass
Just a quick glimpse on the telly
As they pass from our thoughts
Another number on the list growing longer
As our hearts become harder
To the tears of the Mother’s never seen
Just a glimpse on the telly as our life goes on
Changing hearts and minds in what the politicians say
But can changing hearts and minds over there
Be changing hearts and minds over here?
Just a glimpse on the telly is not enough
To show our gratitude and horror of life taken.
