lyrics

Verse 1:
Calling all the children, children with the
eyes of tired old men
Calling all the children, fending for
themselves since who knows when

Pre-Chorus:
Sons of shards of clay
Daughters of broken glass
Earth is yours someday, but today

Chorus:
Who will treasure you (x3)
Ben Oni

Verse 2:
Calling sons of sorrow, may you learn to
run and laugh again
Calling sons of strength, may you let
your walls down now and then

Pre-Chorus:
Sons of shards of clay
Daughters of broken glass
Earth is yours someday, but today

Chorus:
Who will treasure you (x3)
Ben Oni

Bridge:
Things too deep, too marvellous for me
Can't save this world, can't solve these
mysteries
But like a child close to her mother's
heartbeat
Hush, be still and know...

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
Calling all the dreamers
fell asleep before you lived your dreams,
Arise.

Descant:
I know you're small and weak and fell
right through the cracks in the land
But you are precious to me,
chosen son of my right hand
And I will hold you till
your crimson sorrow fades away
There is a place for you
nestled between my shoulder-blades, and

Now I will love you till the
sky falls down in sheets of flame
And I will love you
When the world is still and new again
You can believe me when I say
from now we're family
Nothing can separate us
for all of eternity
