Sorrow

From the album "Sorrow" by Mike Willis

Buy from:

The song was inspired by a TV news story about the famine in Africa as follows:

A nurse in one of the camps told of a lady who walked for days to the camp carrying her baby.
When she arrived at the camp she asked for help and the nurse went to help her.
Just as she arrived with the lady her baby died.
The nurse said both of them just cried what else could they do?

It is very hard to listen to that sort of story so I decided to write a song to try and help by raising some funds.
The song entitled “Sorrow” is to benefit the international children’s charity for Africa.

ALL sales profit will go to the charity.I hope you can consider buying it to ease the sorrow a little.

                                        SORROW

 VERSE 1

 NO FOOD TODAY – LIKE YESTERDAY
 AND WHO CAN SAY – WHAT DAYS WILL FOLLOW
 HEAR CHILDREN CRY – WATCH CHILDREN DIE
 WONDERING WHY – WILL THERE BE TOMORROW?

 CHORUS

 IN THIS DAY AND AGE
 IT FILLS ME WITH RAGE
 TO THINK OF SUCH SORROW

 VERSE 2
 THE WORLD LOOKS ON – WONDERING WHAT'S WRONG
 THE FEELING'S STRONG – BUT SOON FORGOTTEN
 NO FOOD TODAY – LIKE YESTERDAY
 AND WHO CAN SAY – WILL THERE BE TOMORROW?

 CHORUS

 IN THIS DAY AND AGE
 IT FILLS ME WITH RAGE
 TO THINK OF SUCH SORROW

 VERSE 3

 NO FOOD TODAY – AND NO CLEAN WATER
 SO CHILDREN DIE – THEY'RE SONS AND DAUGHTERS
 IT'S FAR AWAY – BUT FEEL THE SORROW
 FOR WHO CAN SAY – WILL THERE BE TOMORROW?

 CHORUS

 IN THIS DAY AND AGE
 IT FILLS ME WITH RAGE
 TO THINK OF SUCH SORROW

 CHORUS

 IN THIS DAY AND AGE
 IT FILLS ME WITH RAGE
 TO THINK OF SUCH SORROW

 TO THINK OF SUCH SORROW
