KIM
you who i cradled in my arms - you
asking as little as you can
little snip of a little man
i know i'd give my life for you

you didn't ask me to be born - you
why should you learn of war or pain
to make sure you're not hurt again
i swear i'd give my life for you

i've tasted love
beyond all fear
and you should know it's love
that brought you here
and in one perfect night
when the stars burned like new
i knew what i must do

i'll give you
a million things i'll never own
i'll give you
a world to conquer when you're grown

you will be who you want to be - you
can choose whatever heaven grants
as long as you can have your chance
i swear i'll give my life for you

sometimes i wake up
reaching for him
i feel his shadow brush my head
but there's just moonlight on my bed
was he a ghost? was he a lie?
that made my body laugh and cry?
then by my side, the proof i see:
his little one
gods of the sun
bring him to me

you will be who you want to be - you
can choose whatever heaven grants
as long as you can have your chance
i swear i'll give my life for you

no one can stop what i must do
i swear i'll give my life for you

(a CHORUS of VIETNAMESE gathering to leave the country.)

FIRST GROUP
no place, no home
no life, no hope
no chance, no chance

SECOND GROUP
no regret
no return
no goodbye

THIRD GROUP
one day -
one night -
one day -

(The ENGINEER, KIM, and TAM join the boat-people.)
