Vertaling van: Davina Michelle - 17 Miljoen Mensen

Actually right now I would like
To put an arm around you
So much news, so quiet in the streets
An elbow was never so civilized
And there are more peculiar things, because

I call my mother with a quivering voice
Because of what the Prime Minister said we must do
Well intentioned but sneaky quite a bit scary
and I think about
All the worries about health and jobs
Everything is so loaded on television now
I think of grandmothers and -dads
But strangely enough it brings us together

17 Million people
On that very small piece of earth
You don't prescribe them the law
You let them keep their dignity

Well there are now 1000s of students
In spring in their rooms
And in the meanwhile very hard workers
In care that barely sleep, but with

17 Million people
It is quite a shock
Half of them are at home now, but with
17 million people
With the noses in the same direction, we will work it out with

17 million people
On that very small piece of earth
You don't prescribe them the law
You let them keep their dignity
