Spanish Eyes By Madonna + Breaking The Silence By Loreena Mckennitt

Spanish Eyes- Madonna

 I know for sure his heart is here with me
Though I wish him back, I know he cannot see
My hands trembling, I know he hears me sing

[Chorus:]

I light this candle and watch it throw
Tears on my pillow
And if there is a Christ, he'll come tonight
To pray for Spanish eyes
And if I have nothing left to show
Tears on my pillow
What kind of life is this if God exists
Then help me pray for Spanish eyes

He had to fight like all the rest
In the barrio all the streets are paved with fear
I don't understand; at least he was a man

[chorus]

[Intermediate:]

How many lives will they have to take?
How much heartache?
How many suns will they have to burn?
Spanish eyes
When will they ever learn?

You were not the Maravilla in our minds
We were proud to fight but we cannot win this blind
Stand your guns against the wall
Who's next in line to fall

[chorus]

[Spoken:]

Tus lagrimas de tristeza
No me dejan olvidarte
Your tears of sadness
Will not let me forget you

[intermediate]

One of the most touching songs ever.

 

Breaking the Silence- Loreena Mckennitt

I hear some distant drumbeat
A heartbeat pulsing low
Is it coming from within
A heartbeat I don't know

A troubled soul knows no peace
A dark and poisoned pool
Of liberty now lost
A pawn an oppressors tool

Oh my heart be strong
And guide when eyes grow dim
When ears grow deaf with empty words
When I know there's life within

A gunfire shatters silence
Where birds once sweetly sang
A mother cradles a child now dead
Now death where life began

From the troubled heart of South Africa
Nicaragua's festering sore
The turmoil on the streets of China
Death crying out for more

But oh my heart be strong
And guide when eyes grow dim
When ears grow deaf with empty words
When I know there's life within

A change is slow in coming
My eyes can scarcely see
The rays of hope come streaming
Through the smoke of apathy

But oh my heart be strong
And guide when eyes grow dim
When ears grow deaf with empty words
When I know there's life within

May the spirit never die
Though a troubled heart feels pain
When this long winter is over
It will blossom once again

Also very touching, so much meaning...

I could list many more, but then I would probably take about 10 pages to fill.
