Story behind the song
It's a co-write with Nad Sylvan of Sweden and was kindly named a "Track of the Year" in 2005 by Steve Gilmore. Congratulations to Nad on being featured on Steve Hackett's album "Genesis Revisited 11" and also being on a few world tours with him as lead vocalist Based on the music from my existing song "Where's the hand?" it was kindly recorded and produced by Nad who I'd approached knowing what a dynamic and talented artist and producer he is. I was thrilled that he agreed without any hesitation. I feel the vocals/guitar work are superb. In 2005 the song was on the website of a major Charity building a Children's Hospital in Sri Lanka.
Lyrics
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/Nad Sylvan 2005
