Lyrics

 Chorus

Oh little bird, where are you flying?

You are so far, so far from home

The winds of war have blown your nest away

Oh little bird, you’re bound to roam

 

1. If we had wings to fly back in time

To days of peace and nights of calm

You’d fly straightway to the ones you love

But time will not stand still, so you fly on

 

2. Through storm and rain you made your journey

Through days and nights, each step a test

We offer twigs and leaves, and ribbons

Here you can build, here you can rest

 

3. And one by one we’ll make a better day

And day by day, peace shall return

As twig by twig together we will build

A nest of peace to shelter all the world!

 

Last chorus:

Oh little bird, where are you flying?

You are so far, so far from home

But one by one together we will build

A nest of peace to shelter all the world

A nest of peace to shelter all the world!
