Mi Familia - released on WHO CARES
Migration has become a world wide phenomena and talking point. What compels large groups of people to uproot their lives and leave their homeland for another country. There are all kinds of reasons. But in the end, for many, it's simply about family.
"Mi Familia" is on the soon-to-be-released Who Cares album! Here's a vid. Share your thoughts on Facebook on Twitter or click to Contact David directly
Mi Familia (David G Smith/Tom Favreau)
Another migrant stuck in Nogales
Shanty town Mexican side
Captured crossing the border
A journey many have tried
I serve them food in this comedor
Some of them I know by name
When I ask them why they keep risking their lives, the answer is always the same
Mi Familia, Mi Familia
My sisters, my brothers, the babies their mothers
They freeze at night crossing the desert
Drown in the Rio Grande
Violence and poverty chase them
On their run for the promised land
Everyone that comes thru here
Has a story and picture to show
Of desperate lives framing hopeful eyes
Telling me why they still go
Their stories tear me apart
But the children will break your heart
I see them every day
All of them are
