Y'all Haven't Done a Thing to Me

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6
In Cairo, they don't know what time it is now
The sun above La Rambla isn't the same today
In France there's a concert, people enjoy themselves
Someone sings loudly, someone screams: "to death!"
 
In London it's always raining, but today it's fine
The sky doesn't cut any slack, not even for a funeral
In Nice the sea is red with fire and shame
With people on the asphalt and blood in the sewer
 
And this enormous body we call Earth
With wounds to its organs from Asia to England
Galaxies of people lost in space
But what's most important is the space for a hug
 
From childless mothers, from fatherless children
From faces illuminated like pictureless walls
Minutes of silence broken by a voice
"Y'all haven't done a thing to me."
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Y'all haven't taken a thing from me
This is my life that goes onward
Beyond everything, beyond people
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Y'all haven't won a thing
Because everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
 
There are those who make the sign of the cross, those who pray on rugs
Churches and mosques, imams and all the priests
Different entrances to the same house
Billions of people hoping for something
 
Handless arms, nameless faces
Let's swap our skin, deep down we're all human
Because our lives aren't just points of view
And there's no such thing as a pacifist bomb
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Y'all haven't taken a thing from me
This is my life that goes onward
Beyond everything, beyond people
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Y'all haven't won a thing
Because everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
Your useless wars
 
They'll all fall, skyscrapers, subways,
Walls of separation built over bread
But against every terror that stands in the way
The world rises up with the smile of a child
With the smile of a child
With the smile of a child
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Y'all haven't taken a thing from me
This is my life that goes onward
Beyond everything, beyond people
 
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Your useless wars
Y'all haven't taken a thing from me
Your useless wars
Y'all haven't done a thing to me
Your useless wars
Y'all haven't won a thing
Your useless wars
 
I'm aware that it won't all come back
Bliss has flown off
The way a bubble drifts away
