WE WILL NOT GO DOWN IN GAZA TONIGHT

Thank You Michael Heart For Your Song:

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN IN GAZA TONIGHT

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song For GAZA)

(Composed & Performed by Michael Heart)

(Copyright 2009)

A blinding flash of white light

Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight

People running for cover

Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes

With ravaging fiery flames

And nothing remains

Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike

Murdered and massacred night after night

While the so-called leaders of countries afar

Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain

And the bombs fell down like acid rain

But through the tears and the blood and the pain

You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

Letter From Michael Heart

Dear friends,

I have been overwhelmed by the warmth and the friendship you have
all given me in response to my song for Gaza, “We Will Not Go Down”. I
am doing my best to go through your numerous messages, emails and
comments, and ask you to kindly bear with me until I am able to do so.
Please forgive me if I am not able to respond to each and everyone of
you; but please also know that I really appreciate your messages.

My original intention to donate proceeds from the sale of the MP3 to
charity has been complicated by technical matters; therefore, I have
decided to make the song available free of charge. I would like to
request that after downloading the song from this page, you kindly
donate directly to a charity or an organization dedicated to alleviate
the suffering of the Palestinian people. Worthy of note is UNWRA (United
Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near
East), which has been helping Palestinian refugees since their
dispossession in 1949. Please click here to donate through them: http://www.un.org/unrwa/

Thank you for your continued encouragement of my work as a musician,
for your purchases of my CD, and for spreading the song, the video and
the message as you have been doing. I am grateful for every
demonstration of support I have received from you, and for every
thought and prayer that has gone to the people of Gaza.

Sincerely,

Michael Heart
