Track Name: St. Mary's Hospital
Give him a pencil and he'll draw gun,
A war, a terrified face a needle in the eye
Ask him why his head hurts and he will reply
If I do not see blood, a headache will occur

He grew up in the bush, no mother or father to discipline
Oh-oh the rebels they say they love him they teach him to fight, they teach him to hate, kill, oh destroy cold heart.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh


But I, I fear to sleep so I will walk to St. Mary’s, oh oh Oh,
I cry in my mind, cos when I think my heart it beeps

The L.R.A are his friends, along with AK47 |
Abducting friends his own age and hunting by the night.
The children they play war games to improve their fight,
all day they have no love, no conscience left or right.

Every night and sunrise my legs hurt again, I’d rather sleep so safely I’m doing my homework in dim light on the damp floor
One blanket to sleep. Oh oh oh oh oh oh, to sleep. Oh oh oh oh oh

But I, I fear to sleep, so I will walk to St Mary’s oh oh oh,
I cry in my mind, cos when I think my heart it beeps

But why? Why is I there no peace? Acholi tribe please don't captivate me Oh Oh Oh
I cry in my mind cos when I think my heart it beeps
Track Name: Seven Years
She was just a shepherdess
Walking over to the well
She was pleasing to his eye
His heart had turned to
Liquid at her feet, Oh Oh Oh…
Liquid at her feet Oh Oh Oh.,,

Immediately he fell in love
Asking for her hand in marriage
Her father Laban said "you cannot
Marry her until you work for me Oh Oh Oh..
Until you work for me Oh Oh Oh…."


Seven years it would take this long
Seven years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven years for his dear love

Seven years felt only to him
But a few days for his love for her
Was so strong, stronger than a mountain,
Stronger than the eye could see
Oh Oh Oh stronger than the eye could see

When the evening time had come
There was the wedding celebration
Laban took his sister Leah
To the groom but she was not his love,
Oh Oh Oh
Deceitfully was ushered to him


Seven years it would take this long
Seven years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven years for the wrong one!

Bah dah bah bah bah
Bah dah bah bah bah...

Seven Years
it would take this long,
Seven Years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven Years for the wrong one!
Track Name: Made To Be
Galloping away, to your favorite place
He has prepared for you, Oooh.
He’s the light of all, the redeeming tree
He has given you, successfully.

(Don't you know that) |
Stars have fought your love
Night has fought your time
But they’re only drowned
By this bridal gown,
Oh Oh Oh

Cos' you and me, were made to be
Yeah you, and me, were made to be


I’m storing up the rooms, with golden timpani’s
Plus tambourines with teasing trumpets too.
I’m fashioning a crown, specifically for you
Engraving secret messages, Who hoo, Oh

(Don't you know that)
Stars have fought your love
Night has fought your time Ooh
But they’re only drowned
By this bridal gown


Cos' you and me, were made to be
Yeah you, and me, were made to be

Oh, he is the writer
The author and fighter
The voice in my mother,
The dearest delighter
The roar in the wind
rising up with a spin
and the new baby born
and the shield in the storm
and Oh, Oh, Oh
and Oh Oh Oh ooh.
And Oh oh oh, ooh.
Track Name: Secret's Safe
Sunday morning comes again
But church is not my friend
Looking in the mirror
I’m afraid to see my scars again,
Shuffling up the hill to lose some burdens I can’t face today
On the path the Morepork found my common sense thrown down the drain
I’ll climb this hill, all the same…


My secret's safe with you, my friend
Your golden hands they kindly bend
My secret's safe with you, my friend
My kowhai gem you'll help me mend


For years you've healed the bruises, cuts and swelling in my legs
This pine forest is really doing wonders for my head
Your bark it holds the key to curing every hopeful, living thing
But hope has packed it's bags from me, walked out the door
and turned the key
I'll climb this mound, all the same

My secret's safe with you, my friend
Your golden hands they kindly bend
My secret's safe with you, my friend
My kowhai gem you'll help me mend

We children of light, we're here with a fright
We're singing awake child, hold your fight
For he will release your foot from the snare
Trade valleys of achor for doors of hope

You'll sing with the sick and you'll raise the dead!
You'll sing with the roar of the orchestras
We children of light, we're here with a fright,
We're singin' awake child you're his delight!
