"WHEN WILL THE WAR BE ENDED"

Verse 1
[Girl:] My friend went out and didn’t come home
one day; the soldiers came and took him away.
I wonder, can you tell me when I will ever see him again?
[Boy:] Some of my friends were on the streets outside
When a bomb blew up by their side.
Can somebody tell me why?
[Both:] Why did they have to die?

Chorus 1
[Girl:] Tell me when, when will the guns stop firing?
When will the bombs stop falling?
When will we learn to love instead of hate?
[Boy:] Can’t we learn to love?
[Girl:] Tell me when, when will the war be ended?
[Both:] And our broken hearts be mended?
When we will have a chance to live in peace again?
[Both:] Can you tell me when?

Verse 2
[Girl:] In the park were trees and flower beds;
Now it’s a cemetery filled with the dead.
Can you tell me what it’s for, this horrible thing called war?
[Boy:] Oh my God, this war is so insane!
How can people be so inhumane?
[Both:] But when hope seems so far away,
All I can do is pray-.

Chorus 2
[Both:] When? [Girl:] When will the guns stop firing?
[Boy:] God, can you tell me when?
[Girl:] When will the bombs stop falling?
[Both:] When will we learn to love [Boy:] Instead of hate?
[Girl:] Can somebody tell me when? [Boy:] When?
[Girl:] When will the war be ended?
[Both:] And our broken hearts be mended?
When will we have a chance to live in peace again?
-Woh, woh. -

Bridge
[Girl 2:] Hang on, my friends.
Someday the guns will be silenced,
There’ll be an end to the violence,
And everyone in the world will understand
That God is love. He can bring us together;
The peace that He gives is forever.
When the world knows His love and lives hand in hand.

Chorus 2
[Girl 2:] Only then, then will the guns stop firing,
There will be no more fighting;
Then we will learn to love instead of hate.
Only then will the wars be ended
And our broken hearts be mended; then we will live in peace,
And there’ll be no more war forever more,
[Boy:] Forever more. [Girl 1:] The day we’re dreaming of.
[Girl 2:] Then will the wars be ended,
[Boy and Girl 1:] Our broken hearts be mended.
[Boy:] The day we’re longing for,
[Girl 1:] Longing for, [Girl 2:] Longing for, peace
[All:] Forever more!
