'To the outsider it seems that we in Britain 
Live daily under the cloud of terrorism. 
That familiarity sometimes makes you think of it as almost normal 
Then suddenly something will happen' 

We stand, hang our heads disbelieving 
Then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong 
We wonder just what they must be thinking 
To take a life of one so young 

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon? 
How far must we go, to prove to you? 

We wait and we wonder how this happened 
Killing the old, the innocent, the young 
While sons follow in fathers footsteps not understanding 
That what they do could somehow be so wrong 

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon? 
How far must we go, to prove to you? 

So we will wait and we'll wonder 

No regrets, no forgiveness, no compassion 
These brave heroes only know to hit and run 
Slowly my sadness turns to rage and we wonder 
How can these scars ever heal, when all is said and done 

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon? 
How many tears must fall to prove to you? 
Please tell me, when will it be over now, how soon? 
And how far must they go, to prove to you? 

So we wait and we wonder
