Dari Om Michael

Kali pertama mendengarnya dari televisi beberapa hari yang lalu. Saat itu hanya berupa cuplikan (bukan keseluruhan lagu) dan yang paling terngiang adalah kata "Gaza tonight".

"Mungkin judulé 'Gaza Tonight'", pikirku.

Hari Sabtu kemarin Pak Rus memutarkan lagu ini. Aku jadi tahu kalau lagu ini berjudul "We Will Not Go Down" dan digubah oleh Michael Heart.

Lagu ini bisa didapatkan melalui situsnya Michael Heart. Proses "pembelian" agak berbeda dengan lagu-lagu lain.
1. Unduhlah melalui tautan yang ada di http://michaelheart.com/Song_for_Gaza.html
2. Silakan nilai sendiri berapa harganya.
3. Bayarkanlah harga tersebut untuk bangsa Palestina melalui lembaga kemanusiaan yang ada.

Seperti senandung Siti Nurhaliza kemarin, kualitas audio di sini diturunkan. Untuk mendengarkan yang berkualitas bagus, silakan "beli" aslinya.

.:: We Will Not Go Down ::.




A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive


They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze


We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight


Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right


But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze


We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight
