It is so easy to give up
And to blame the others for
All the things that make us cry
And resort to start a war

Why don’t we try a ceasefire?
Why don’t we try a ceasefire?

When did we start to drift apart?
When did we start to put the blame?
Is there no way to reconcile?
Is there no way to stop the pain?
Why does our pride make it so hard?
To say sorry for what went wrong?
Why can’t we make a new start?
Why do we have to shoot and fall?

Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?

And it is much harder to forgive
Once blood and tears have been shed
We’ve already crossed that line
(But) there was a time when we were friends

Is it so hard to remember?
Is it so hard to remember?

Did none of this survive?
We’re too blinded by our pride…

Before words start to escalate
And we say things that we regret
Before the scars reopen wide
And before we all die
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?

I know we will never forget
About the past and our mistakes
But in our hearts isn’t there room
For some kind of forgiveness
We could make a ceasefire…
We could make a ceasefire…

Why do you want to carry on
When it’ll hurt us even more
Can’t you see none of us has won
Even if we’ll never be like before

Why don’t we try a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
