‘Nobody Should Have To Go Through This’

Cruel explosions split the night
People stagger in the eerie light
Charred remains, missing friends
Broken lives that will never mend

Nobody should have to go through this
Nobody should have to go through this
Believe what you will, but for God's sake don't kill
Nobody should have to go through this

Back in Melbourne, at 3 a.m.
Phone rings, it's a close old friend
He says, "It's your daughter - don't know how to say this
"Something terrible has happened, and we don't know where she is"

Nobody should have to go through this
Nobody should have to go through this
Believe what you will, but it's evil to kill
Nobody should have to go through this

Days go by, like some senseless dream
Politicians go on record, expressing sympathy
Mum's still waiting by the phone
For her girl, who will never come home

Nobody should have to go through this
Nobody should have to go through this
Believe what you like, but this just isn't right
Nobody should have to go through this (repeat)
