VALENTIN
It was made out of mud
And pieces of tin
And boxes nailed together
Cardboard boxes
My castle
My home

And we slept on the floor
My sister and I
With gunny sacks for our pillows
Coughing, hungry, cosy
My home

And every Sunday on our knees
We would thank the Lord
For his bountiful blessings

And our mother poured soup
Into little cracked bowls
As she spoke of something better
Beef steak, maybe, someday
My home

And that lady had eyes
That were empty and cold
At the ripe old age of thirty
Death came
Welcome
To my home

And still that Sunday
On our knees
How we thanked the Lord
For his bountiful blessings

And my sister and I
Swore the day that we left
There’d be no more children like us
In the filth there, in the heat there.
In the smell there

And no more Sundays
On our knees
Would we thank the Lord
For his bountiful blessings

And we came to the city
And begged for our food
Then, one April day we heard it
Thunder rumbling
One man speaking
Thousands singing…

Someday we’ll be free
I promise you, we’ll be free
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that

And the candles in our hands
Will illuminate this land
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that

And the world that gives us pain
That fills our lives with fear
On the day after that
Will disappear

And the war we’ve fought to win
I promise you, we will win
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that
Or the day after that

CHORUS & VALENTIN
Someday we’ll be free
I promise you, we’ll be free
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that

And the candles in our hands
Will illuminate this land
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that

And the world that gives us pain
That fills our lives with fear
On the day after that
Will disappear
Will disappear
Will disappear

And the war we’ve fought to win
I promise you, we will win
If not tomorrow
Then the day after that
Or the day after that
Or the day after that
Or the day after that
Or the day after that
Or the day
After that!
