And they wonder what our parents say And they wonder how we'll raise our children And they tell me that I'm living with a monster And they whisper that she took up with a villain But I don't see dragon's scales And I don't see claws and fangs All I'm looking at is arms that hold me Brown eyes that understand And when she closed those eyes one final time no pipers came But I know we got a love that's truer than a military sniper's aim But we won't die in vain Tie that chain round my waist And pull me from the bottom of the pit of hell up to your final resting place Sarajevo, Sarajevo You're the altar that I pray to God is love and love is all we have We were trynna run from the city Had the hope and the pride of the kids People wanna put up walls to divide us Kinda fitting that we died on a bridge Same souls, both sides of the banks They say we're different and they're fillin in the facts But they put the same metal in the bullets And they put the same bullets in our backs Kinda love that we got is one in a mill Ain't no God that I pray to would wanna kill It's not God but it's fear and it's politics And a Molotov that was lit with a dollar bill Don't say that all is lost Escape this holocaust My God, Allah, my darling, star and crescent and my cross Sarajevo, Sarajevo You're the altar that I pray to God is love and love is all we have Sarajevo, Sarajevo I will honor and be faithful God is love and love is all we have Where do we come from? Where do we go? You could fill up the sea with the things I don't know But I know what I feel and I know when it's real And I hope that we heal We're two drops of the blood and tears Over thousands of years of the clash of the steel I'm not blind to the cycle We're pressed in spine of a Bible They define the divine by the title But what did Christ say? To be kind to my rival You're my kind of revival It's true ya, my favorite Hallelujah You my you my favorite Hallelujah Sarajevo, Sarajevo You're the altar that I pray to God is love and love is all we have
