Fallen Messenger

Verse One

In the library, hope came into view
Standing with heroes’, time let me walk through 
(The) Face of honest Abe, on a book cover
(Then) John Kennedy and, Bobby his brother

Verse Two

Sat with Gandhi and, Martin Luther King 
I read about peace, I heard freedom ring
Their eyes were intent on, change they could share 
They were wise in ways, so quiet in prayer


A few words go far so they say 
Actions speak louder and slip away    
Rest in peace shaking heads can pray 
It’s always about the words they say


When unfolding evil shoots tragedy 
The Fallen Messenger the world see’s
The message remains what will be will be
The Fallen Messenger the world see’s

Verse Three

Aiming for peace was, Yitzak Rabin’s goal
John Lennon sang it, then hate lost control
Shot in cold blood, hearts of love gone by
Courage makes a mark, when millions will cry
