--For Pakistan, my first home.--


Let me take you by the hand
Where the jasmine flowers grew
A thousand petals embracing the evening on cue
When the early monsoon rain
Was the only force they knew
And their innocent fragrance would wash over you
Oh, I miss that view

Then one day they built a wall
Where the jasmine flowers grew
And made the fairest of gardens a white petal tomb
Now there's concrete and barbed wire
Where the jasmine flowers grew
And all the world sees are headlines and fault lines and feuds
And I'm missing you

Won't you breathe the air with me
Where the jasmine flowers grew
In the dark there hangs a hint of their heady perfume
May dark bring their bloom.
