about

The song was born on the night of 25th February just after the war in Ukraine broke out. My heart is breaking too but instead of crying, I decided to sing. I send all my love to the brave Ukrainians. The freedom has never felt so fragile and so powerful before as it feels now, at this very moment.

Please help Ukraine to restore peace by supporting the humanitarian organizations or the army to defend themselves. Please help to bring the facts of the horrifying crime happening towards humankind to the knowledge of Russian people who still may not know about it.

Mõr Ukraini!

lyrics

Somewhere There´s War

Somewhere there´s war
But far from me
Somebody´s torn
On a battlefield
A baby cries
But it´s not mine
Somebody dies
But it´s not me

Humanity
Humanity
Can you still feel?
Can you still feel?

Somewhere there´s war
It´s at my home
My brother´s torn
On a battlefield
A baby cries
Ah, it´s my child!
Somebody dies
Oh look, it´s me

Can I still feel
Can I still feel
human?
Can I still feel
Can I still feel
human?

To be a man
Does it mean to fight?
To close my heart
And have no fright

A human
A human
A human

When I was a child
I looked up the sky
I used to feel
My mind is free

My mind is free
My mind is free
My mind is free

Your mind is free
Your mind is free
Free
Free
Free
Free
