Story behind the song
Like most people, I was extremely moved while watching the horror of the Asian tsunami unfold on tv. I adapted the music from my song "Where's the hand" as it seemed so fitting.
Lyrics
AS THE TIDAL WAVE ROLLED IN We pray for answers as we look up to the sky, There are no answers, but we can’t help asking why. Deep in the ocean, an earthquake made it’s roar, Against all the innocent, it waged it’s war. CHORUS As the tidal wave rolled in The tidal wave rolled in The tragedy unfurled… A wave of sorrow round the world. We search for answers as we look up to the sky, There are no answers, but we keep on asking why. Where are the people, where did they all go Where are the children, taken by the flow CHORUS As the tidal wave rolled in, The tidal wave rolled in, The water flowed so tall, And we can’t make sense of it at all. Homes were crumbled by the power of the wave, Thousands of voices were calling to be saved As the tidal wave rolled in, The tidal wave rolled in, It changed a million lives, And we need to pray for them tonight. As the tidal wave rolled in, The tidal wave rolled in, The tragedy unfurled, A wave of sorrow round the world. Words/Music © Carol Douglas 2005
