[Intro]
Am         Am
 
 
[Verse 1]
      Am/B  C            G                  D      Am
This is my homeland, the place where I was born,
          Am/B  C             G           F       Am
And through my childhood, was safe and secure,
      Am/B C             G            Am
Like many children, knew nothing of war,
        Fmaj7                                         Am
We were playing and laughing and playing,
 
 
[Verse 2]
        Am/B   C             G                 D     Am
Here´s another photograph of where we used to live,
          Am/B C       G              F       Am
Our house was always a safe place to be,
       Am/B  C           G          Am
But now it´s gone, only rubble and dust,
         Fmaj7
We were hoping and praying and hoping,
   C  G         Am       Am
Oooooh, all has gone
 
 
[Verse 3]
      Am/B  C            G                  D     Am
This is my homeland, the place where I was born,
        Am/B C         G        F      Am
And like my father and his one before,
            Am/B  C            G               Am
We´ve raised our families and worked for them all,
         Fmaj7
With our hopes and our dreams
 
And our hopes and our dreams

[Verse 4]
     A
And then came the thunder and so many people running,
         E                          F#m
From the cities and the battlefields,
           Bm
And as the bombs rained down,
        F#m                              Esus4   E
We were hiding from the bullets and the guns;
 
 
[Chorus]
   F#m      E             D            A        D           Esus4  E
Oh can you imagine how it has been for us to be losing everything?
       F#m         E              D       A       D     E          A  Asus4
As the world stood still we would never know what every day would bring;
 Asus2 A   Asus4  Asus2 A    Asus4  Asus2  Esus4  E
Every day,       every day
 
 
[Verse 5]
      A
So we came to your country, you were there with open arms,
        E                F#m
To give shelter from the storm,
       Bm
We are doctors and lawyers,
    F#m                   Esus4  E
And all of us people like you;
 
 
[Chorus]
   F#m      E             D            A          D          Esus4  E
Oh can you imagine how it would be for you to be losing everything?
       F#m          E              D      A        D     E          A  Asus4
As the world stood still you would never know what every day would bring,
 Asus2  A  Asus4 Asus2  A  Asus4 Asus2 A
Every day,     every day,        every day
 
A   Asus4   Asus2   A 
A   Asus4   Asus2   A
A   Asus4   Asus2   A
A
 
 
[Outro]
Am   F   G   F
 
         Am      G          F         C
There is always hope in the human heart,
     F       G    C
For better days ahead

                  This is my homeland, the place where I was born,
And through my childhood, was safe and secure,
Like many children, knew nothing of war,
We were playing and laughing and playing,

Here´s another photograph of where we used to love,
Our house was always a safe place to be,
But now it´s gone, only rubble and dust,
We were hoping and praying and hoping,
Oh, all has gone;

This is my homeland, the place where I was born,
And like my father and his one before,
We´ve raised our families and worked for them all,
With our hopes and our dreams
And our hopes and our dreams

And then came the thunder and so many people running,
From the cities and the battlefields,
And as the bombs rained down,
We were hiding from the bullets and the guns;

Oh can you imagine how it has been for us to be losing everything?
As the world stood still we would never know what every day would bring;
Every day, every day, every day;

So we came to your country, you were there with open arms,
To give shelter from the storm,
We are doctors and lawyers,
And all of us people like you;

Oh can you imagine how it would be for you to be losing everything?
As the world stood still you would never know what every day would bring,
Every day, every day, every day

There is always hope in the human heart,
For better days ahead.
