 Salim et Yona

Jean-Baptiste Devaux, Chloé Bernard / FR

duration: 3':48''

Text of the song
My little boy died this morning
Said a mother in tears
Her tears falling from her brown veil
And she is more and more afraid

Her little Salim has gone to heaven
But the bombs are falling one after another
She thinks that God is punishing her
Yet she hasn’t done nothing wrong

Little Yona is in a bed
Ready to rejoin all her friends
All these innocent dead children
Because of the childishness of adults

Her heart is on the point of stopping beating
Her father is praying that someone will give a heart
He still ignores that from the other side
The love of a mother is without borders

A gunshot isn’t worth thinking of
Hope will reignite one of these days
… Every day if we want it to

Salim didn’t die without a reason
If his loss will ease your sorrow
I will give you the heart of my son at rest
For your little dove, a symbolic gesture

Salim’s heart is beating again
In Yona’s body, there is a bird
A bird of peace that haunts the sky
Between Palestine and Israel

A gunshot isn’t worth thinking of
Hope will reignite one of these days
… Every day if we want it to
