The Elysian Fields

A mother lays in the dark and prays
Will her love be enough to keep him safe
What God would take a boy who’s barely grown yet?
He must come back
So much lies ahead

A father sits as the sun goes down
Will his hope be enough to bring her home
What God would take a girl who’s barely twenty?
Please bring her back
So much lies ahead

All that we want is a compromise
The killing to end on both sides
