I wish I can see Syria

Not filled with blood and shame
But filled with life and game

And the sun darkens it...
I wish I can go there and see buildings
People smiling as you walk in the street
People running and playing but....
Hiding and crying
They are scared they're praying
Ohh God I wish I can think of my country
And smile for a change
Instead I try to forget and cry
Ohh God I wish there is hope
I wish everything will be okay
Nothing is left of this country
No leaves on trees
No flowers alive
Living in the shadows
I wish I can forget about this
I wish this is everyone's wish
I wish I can help
I wish we can do something about it..
