When The Children Cry Lyrics - White Lion

Review The Song (39)



little child
dry your crying eyes
how can I explain
the fear you feel inside
cause you were born
into this evil world
where man is killing man
and no one knows just why
what we have become
just look what we have done
all that we destroyed
you must build again

when the children cry
let them know we tried
cause when the children sing
then the new world begins

sponsored links
little child
you must show the way
to a better day
for all the young
cause you were born
for all the world to see
that we all can live
with love and peace
no more presidents
and all the wars will end
one united world
under god

when the children cry
let them know we tried
cause when the children sing
then the new world begins

what we have become
just look what we have done
all that we destroyed
you must build again
no more presidents
and all the wars will end
one united world
under god

when the children cry
let them know we tried
when the children fight
let them know it ain't right
when the children pray
let them know the way
cause when the children sing
then the new world begins

Sadness on my memory | Reviewer: Franz Domin Ikuz | 8/11/13

If look back to teenager and realize what had happened with my belove country.Every thing was destroyed;churches,offices,schools,...every thing incude my belove family must lost their life. It's not 'coz of God,but coz of occupation,millition. Life was not easy at that time. And if i look one more steep to the back. The happiness was dissapeared. I didn't know how is the happy face expression? Coz it never happen on me when i was child.Not a perfect life.

unite as one under god | Reviewer: clauds | 6/1/13

everytime I listened this song I remembered when I was young for being afraid because of war hadn't peace and plenty lives.and because of war more people had been died and mostly of the children was orphan of their family.I hope this evil world will be change into the brighter world.I thought everyone can do this with unite and loving each other for the better life of new generation.Hopefully we can achieve the word peace.

right of the children | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/13

I like this song...coz every time I heard it ,I always remembered my youngest sister died years ago..this song is all about the children if how innocence they are.but now I knew she live in the peaceful world where in no troubles and in the life of eternally under God.we should make a move to save the children all over the world from the dangerous event.stop being blindness we need to face the reality if what's the really happening around us right now..we need to work as one and work as a team for the new world begins for the sake of the innocenc children were died because of the violence still existing in this world..stop the war! we need to take time for the young generation...toward for the better world.

God | Reviewer: Aniruddha | 3/1/13

It's an amazing song of an underrated band, still I won't really appreciate the lyrics that mush because I do not believe in God. Although I respect the emotions attached in the lyrics.

When The Children Cry | Reviewer: Karen | 2/27/13

My uncle was in Viet Nam, He found this song on a 45 record and gave it to me at 16 yrs. old I fell min love with this song and when Time Life came out with a set that had this song on it I had to get it. I thank my uncle for giving me this song

Proud Dad! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/22/12

I was a longhaired rocker when this song came out, I still kinda am, I am also a Father of a very bright 9 year old son. I've always been one to understand lyrics and always liked this song because of the message within, although you can be assured none of my friends knew my secret. If you are a parent, aunt, uncle, cousin with a child old enough to comprehend the words or can understand an explaination from you this is a great tool for instilling that social conscience, just the humanity and compassion that the lyrics make all aware of.

My brother | Reviewer: anonymous | 2/10/12

My brother......he was such a rock fan and he used to play this song all the time i also heard him play it on this guitar.....the way he played the guitar was magical.....he died 1 month ago and when i hear this song it reminds me of him of how he protrayed the world to and how he used to play it al the time......there is no one now to play the guitar at home and things are so bad....my favourite part in this song is when the lead guarist plays his solo......so sound is so.....it has so much meaning even without words.....when ever i hear this song i will always remember hoe my brother used to play it.....RIP big brother.......

When the children sing then the new world begins | Reviewer: Sailesh | 1/28/12

Well my contry Nepal is having 6ys long sickness that's still the same and never feel better well i wish all of my contry peoples to listen this song and don't ever make the children cry. let them know that we tried. cause when children sing then the new world begins.

I am surprised | Reviewer: Bill | 12/15/11

Uhhh...wow. I am simply shocked at the positive reviews. I grew up in the 80s and this may be one of the worst,wimpy,pandering, songs ever written.Just awful. The Final Countdown may be the only one to top it or maybe that Karate Kid theme song. I Googled it as a joke to send to someone. No offense to anyone who has special memories of this song. That can ceratinly make a difference.

Overcoming Life's challenges | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/11

This song is about how the world is evil, how life is unfair. It's about rising above this, drying the tears, taking the hardships and using them to create a better world, a peaceful world. The part about telling the children that we tried is just about how when people try to make society work there's always some kind of hunger for power. People start doing violent things for no reason. The song is trying to pull hope out of the situation. A lion symbolizes strength to me and maybe leadership. Even though the children are enveloped in war they can be strong and lead a new life without violence, they have an opportunity to change what's happening for the better.

You assholes | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/11

This song is literally on how people treat their young and how the social world portrays what kids should be. All of you only think of trying to avoid the truth. All of you were probably those rich bastards who's parents bought them everything and none of you cared to even look at the kids that are being tortured by the way you people act. Grow up. He is talking about the people like you who destroy everything and just make the next generation try to fix it. And look where we are now. in turmoil. All of you will burn.

Vietnam | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/18/11

i think, this song was mad, 20 years after veitnam war... because, they just felt bad, we killed there moms, dads, houses, left on the streets... and the kids didn't wanna see that.. but we couldnt do anything. R.I.P all veitnam vets.

A Special Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/17/11

on the 20th of February my school had a special occasion my school has a band first the Junior High School Band and The Senior High School Band The Junior High School Band sang the song When The Children Cry By: White Lion and The Senior High School Band sang the song I'ts My Life By: Bon Jovi.I think the song When The Children Cry and the song I'ts My Life have the same meaning because it explains about Life the children who was born into this world i think will make a bright future for this world i suppose that's why there's the word "One United World Under God"

My fav song | Reviewer: Kirsty | 4/16/11

I love this song my family played this song at my uncles funeral i will never forget how sad i was but this song will always be remind me of him and what a great guy he is and what joy he brought into this world!!!
