I was frightened
By your suffering
Fear is poison
Faith the remedy
But it didn't heal you
So how could it help me

I felt useless
You stared but couldn't see me
Growing distant
You were slowly burning out
But your cry for mercy
Was stuck inside me, oh

No enlightenment
No anaesthetic
No last remission
No miracle reprieve
I'm still a child beside you
How did we come to be
Inside this helpless moment
Oluwa shanu mi
Wa shanu mi

I bring my thoughts back to you
They are framed in broken light
Your hands full of compassion
The war that took your life
So hard to remove the pain from
The pure love you gave me

Can you tell me you're not hurting anymore
A waking dream, a sign to reassure
Cause your last words I heard clearly
You were crying for mercy

No enlightenment
No anaesthetic
No last remission
No miracle reprieve
I'm still a child beside you
How did we come to be
Inside this helpless moment
Oluwa shanu mi
Wa shanu mi
