It won't bring back lovers and friends,
But it might make for a happier end.

There is hope in the land of ruins
In the village of old enemies
Who have come to join hands for they share the knowledge:
Compassion is the measure of a man.

It won't bring back lovers and friends,
But it might make for a happier end.

And all the colours will return to these hills
Where the dust of despair takes hold.
One day they will drink from these not still waters.
Where there's a will there's a road.

It won't bring back lovers and friends,
But it might make for a happier end.
Compassion is the measure of a man.

    Song MeaningAn amazing anti-war song only realized several years after its initial release in 2008.

    Lior sang this on the 100th anniversary of the World War I ANZAC, Canadian, Indian, British, and French forces landing on the shores of Gallipoli in Turkey in 2015. Several nations joined together to remember and reflect 100 years later. Compassion is truly the measure of a man.
