Sangatte
Copyright George Papavgeris, June 2002

Twenty four hours since we left from the centre
And like thieves we crept into the night
Twenty hours since this hell-hole we entered
Perhaps this will be our last hour in flight.

Future and prospects all buried in ruins
Village and family long out of sight
Don't stop to think where you are, what you're doing
Now take my hand and let's walk to the light.
-
The clothes you're wearing your only possession
Your shoes with soles already worn thin
Simple survival your only obsession
Your wounds may be gaping, but under your skin.

Your story tragic but no one will listen
Nobody cares for details of your plight
Your body is whole, but your heart dead or missing
Now take my hand and let's walk to the light.

Although you try your best not to remember
The things you've seen you can never forget
And of your family if you are the last member
As long as you're running there's hope for you yet.

If we are caught they will not be forgiving
Many will say that we have no right
But we'll keep trying as long as we're living
Now take my hand and let's walk to the light.
-
Two hours ago I used up the last candle
But from the breeze I can tell that we're near
But are we walking to freedom or scandal?
Take a deep breath now and swallow your fear.

We know for certain that ahead there is danger
And the chance of success only slight
And where you're going you will be a stranger
But now take my hand and let's walk to the light.
