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!
