Let us in: Calais refugee song

1. When I open my eyes I see a barbed wire fence,
and a hun­gry face and a bro­ken tent,
when I close my eyes I see a man with a gun,
going round and round and round and round in my head

Cho­rus
Please give us a place at your table,
let us in, let us in.
Can you share of your salmon and hon­ey
Our pain is your pain too

2. And the soles of my feet are rubbed red and raw
from a burn­ing treck over Syr­i­an sands
where my daugh­ter was tak­en right out of my hands
going round…
Cho­rus

3. And the bombs you sold are the bombs we heard
crash­ing into dust with a blind­ing light
And my moth­er and father both died that night
going round…

Cho­rus over verse
Please give us a place at your table,
let us in, let us in (x2)
let us in.

Last cho­rus
Please give us a place at your table,
let us in, let us in.
Can you share of your salmon and hon­ey
Our pain is your pain too
Our hope is your hope too
Our life is your life too
