*** All proceeds will be donated to War Child ***

My 8 year old daughter saw some news footage of the war in Syria and was shocked at the horrors the people there face on a daily basis. She was particularly worried about the children.

"If you could make just one wish, what would it be?" I asked her. Her reply inspired me to write this song.

"I'd wish for peace in the world; for no more war."

lyrics

Star light, star bright, are you here on Christmas night?
Will you shine for me, so brightly gleaming?
Star light, star bright, can I make a wish tonight?
I can see you though the moon is beaming.

I’ll wish upon a star, that wherever you are...

(Chorus)
There’ll be no more pain for you in this world.
No more fighting, crying to be heard.
There’ll be no more, no more war.

Children crying, wandering the streets at night,
wishing there was someone to hold on to.
I am safely lying in my bed at night.
How come they don’t have the right, like I do?

I’ll wish upon a star, that wherever you are...

Chorus

Soldiers fighting, houses burning in the night.
Do the children fear what they will wake to?
Hoping that one day the fear will stop.
Will they still have someone to come home to?

I’ll wish upon a star, that wherever you are...

Chorus x 3

There’ll be no more, no more war.
There’ll be no more, no more war.

Star light, star bright, that's my wish on Christmas night.
