We Will Not Go Down

A song for Gaza

You can burn…our mosques and our homes and our schools. But our spirit will never die…” sings Michael Heart, an American songwriter, for Gaza reflecting on the horrific situation of the Palestinian people.

As stated on his website, Heart said, “I would like to request that after downloading the song from the page (http://www.michaelheart.com/Song_for_Gaza.html), you kindly donate directly to a charity or an organization dedicated to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people.”

“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,” he added.

Lyric:

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

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
