You did nothing to me

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6
In Cairo people don't know what time is it now
Today the sun over the Rambla is not the same
There's a concert in France, people are having fun
Someone's singing loudly, someone's screaming "to death"
 
It always rains in London, but today it's fine
The sky doesn't make concessions, not even at a funeral
In Nice the sea is red for fires and shame
With people on the concrete and blood in the sewer
 
And this enormous body that we call earth
Wounded in its organs from Asia to England
A galaxy of people lost in space
But the most important one is the space for an hug
 
From childless mothers, from children without a father
From faces enlightened like walls without paintings
Minutes full of silence, broken by a voice
"You did nothing to me"
 
You did nothing to me
You took nothing from me
This is my life that goes on
Beyond everything, beyond the people
 
You did nothing to me
You gained nothing
Because everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
 
There are people that cross themselves, people that pray on carpets
Churches and Mosques. Imams and all the priests
Separated entries in the same house
Billions of people that hope for something
 
Handless arms, nameless faces
Let's change our skin we are humans deep down
'cause our lives are not a point of view
And it doesn't exist a pacifist bomb
 
You did nothing to me
You took nothing from me
This is my life that goes on
Beyond everything, beyond the people
 
You did nothing to me
You gained nothing
Because everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
Your useless wars
 
Skyscrapers and subways will fall apart
Walls raised for money
But against all kind of terror that inder the path
The world gets up on his feet with a child smile
With a child smile
 
You did nothing to me
You gained nothing
Because everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
 
You did nothing to me
Your useless wars
You took nothing from me
Your useless wars
You did nothing to me
Your useless wars
You gained nothing
Your useless wars
 
I am aware that nothing will come back
Happiness flew
As a bubble flies away
