We wrote this song on 13 March 2017. The lyrics were inspired by lines from a T.S. Eliot poem, which Sarah wrote at the top of the page: What life have you if you have not life together?
The song became a kind of chant that we sang together, including new countries each time we repeated the phrases.
Palestine is alive, Iraq is alive
We are alive, side by side
