     i will fold these cranes of paper to a thousand - one by one

ten summers fade to autumn, ten winters' snows have passed
she's a child of dreams and dances, she's a racer strong and fast
but the headaches grow ever more often and the dizziness always returns
and the word that she hears is leukemia and it burns

her ancestors knew the legend - if you make a thousand cranes
from squares of colored paper, it will take the pain away
with loving hands she folds them, six hundred fourty-four
till the morning her trmbling fingers can't fold any more

her friends did not forget her - crane after crane they made
until they reached a thousand and laid them upon her grave
people from everywhere gathered, together a prayer they said
and they wrote the words in granite so none can forget:

E (022100@1)    this is our cry (no more hiroshima)
                 Bsus4 (x24452@1)    this is our prayer (no more nagasaki)
                  Asus2 (x02200@1)    peace in the world (peace in the world)
