Nova Scotia's Heart

Updated: Jun 30

copyright 2020 dalekiddlyrics.com


A robin on her nest

near the ladder’s top rung

Is wary of the crow

that might kill her young

Wary of the crow

on the garden fence

Wary of murder

that would make no sense

Tears are the rivers

that flow from my eyes,

Rain is the pain

that pours from the skies,

Here is the ground

where their future dies,

Here is our heart

where our future lies

Hell hit our province

in the middle of the night

Twenty-two slaughtered

without even a fight

Twenty-two slaughtered

in innocent defence

Twenty-two murders

that make no sense

Tears are the rivers

that flow from my eyes,

Rain is the pain

that pours from the skies,

Here is the ground

where their future dies,

Here is our heart

where our future lies

This is for Emily,

Jolene and Aaron

For Jamie, Greg,

Joanne and John

For Lillian, Heidi,

Alanna and Sean

For Gina, Joey,

Frank and Dawn

For Joy, Peter,

Corrie and Tom

For Lisa, Heather,

Kristen and her

child unborn

Nova Scotia’s heart

got broken right through

A senseless slaughter

of these twenty-two

Love and compassion

helps us survive

Remembering them now

keeps their time here alive

Tears are the rivers

that flow from my eyes,

Rain is the pain

that pours from the skies,

Here is the ground

where their future dies,

Here is our heart

where our future lies
