For You by Tegwyn

For You by Tegwyn  (c)
(From Tape Two)
you’re a man
who stands proud with his gun
won’t you lay down your weapon
and hold out your hand
For you,
you’re a man
who stands proud with a gun
won’t you lay down your weapon
and hold out your hand
For me
I’m a woman
with a child at my breast
and I have no weapon
as I hold out my hand
But you you’re a man
who stands proud with a gun
won’t you throw down your weapon
and hold out your hand
For here is our mother
life’s breath
the moon and the sun
who you continue to threaten
please try to understand
For you
are a child
with a dagger at her breast
and now as I stand
in a pool of her blood
Drop down your weapon
her blood’s dripping from your hand
her blood is dripping from your hand
For she is the birds the trees and the sea
the dolphins at night
the deer
the you and me
And you are a man
who stands proud with his gun
won’t you drop down your weapon
and we’ll try to understand
please hold out your hand
it’s time it’s time
for peace in our land
oh yeah we’ll try
to understand
please hold
out your
hand
