I’m your daughter
Your mother is my mother
And my voice is raised
Giving you thanks and praise
I appeal to you Lord
To stop war
Stop terror
Stop war
Everything comes from you
Everything goes to you too
Everything comes from you
Everything goes to you too
Everything comes from you
Everything goes to you too
Everything comes from you
Everything goes to you too
The introduction, chorus and verse then loop and overlap through the rest of the song, completing with the lines:
Giving you thanks and praise
Giving you thanks and praise
Giving you thanks and praise

Notes

Liner notes

Joji Hirota (Japanese percussionist and composer, formerly Musical Director of Lindsay Kemp's theatre company) co-wrote this with Sinead O'Connor. Flautist Guo Yue was sat in a circle of Chinese pina players with Sinead to one side. "It's a real mixture between Joji, who came up with a piano melody, and Sinead, who added her thing to it," says Peter. "It's a nice mix of moods and cultures." Includes the last recording session for the album with Sevara Nazarkhan's vocals added in 2007.
