To Her - A musical Version


28th April 2010




Some time back I posted a lovely acoustic version of "To Her". A musical composition by Eddie with lyrics based on my humble poem dedicated to Iraq.(slightly modified by Ed)

To Her
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?My lovely one,
how disfigured you've become.
They've slashed your beautiful face,
with a thousand knives.
Hammered nails in your wrists,
set your body on fire.
Amputated your breasts,
smeared your blood on walls.
choking with phosphorus,sewage,garbage,
depleted uranium.
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
how disfigured you've become.
dying of hunger and thirst,
total obscurity.
Stole your wealth,spat on you,
erased your story.
Covered your elegant stature in rags
shrouded you in dirt.
Gang raped you,murdered your children,
buried you in a mass grave.
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
what have they done to you?
My lovely one,
What have they done?

This one is Eddie's newer studio version, a powerful one , which gives me goosebumps and tears every time I listen to it . I urge you to listen to it and leave your feedback on his youtube page here.

Eddie has also done a new version of 7 years (of occupation) which I can't wait for him to upload as well..

Thank you Eddie for all  your wonderful work and your unwavering solidarity with Iraq and her people.

God Bless you and yours..
