This Mortal Coil — I Come And Stand At Every Door lyrics

I come and stand at every door
But no-one hears my silent breath
I knock and yet remain unseen
For I am dead, for I am dead
I'm only seven although I've died
In Hiroshima long ago
I'm seven now as I was then
When children die they do not grow
My hair was ________, my ________________
My eyes grew dim, my eyes grew blind
Death came and turned my bones to dust
And that was scattered by the wind [the wind, the wind]
I need no food, I need no rice
I need no sleep, nor even bread
I ask for nothing for myself
For I am dead, for I am dead
All that I ask is that for peace
You fight today, you fight to die
So that the children of this world
May live and grow, and laugh and play
