Lyrics:

1.
“Pack your bags, we’re leaving home tonight”
Is what she said, then she left the room
Pacing footsteps and a heavy sigh,
is what i heard when she she left the room

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

2.
Have you heard the sound of desperate tears
by your mother, your only truth
Eight years old, too soon to feel the dread
Broken trust and there goes the youth

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

Leaving all behind, ashes of a life
Nowhere else go, but to the unknown
Tell me, when are we finally getting there?
But you promised me, we will have a safe new home

3.
One more thing, you’r father is staying here
There’s a pen, you just need to sign
You know mummy loves you more than him
There’s a war, we don’t have much time

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

Leaving all behind, I don’t understand
Will we ever find home without my dad?
Family is apart. Nowhere I belong.
What is war and what it really means,
I don’t even want to know

When are we getting there?
When are we getting there?
