Title

My Kuiama A Young Vietnamese Girl

Artist

Jim Fitzpatrick

Medium

Drawing - Pastel And Charcoal On Strathmore Drawing Paper

Description

Inspired by the powerful and moving song Kuiama by ELO. This song is the last track of the ELO 2 LP. At 11:19, it is the longest track on the album, and the longest song ever recorded by Electric Light Orchestra. It tells the tale of a soldier who has found an orphan girl wandering the ruins of a battle-ravaged village in the Vietnam war. The soldier is trying to comfort the girl and also to explain how he was the one who killed her parents.

Kuiama

My my Kuiama, she came in the morning
She smiled but the tears on her little face
Showed the pain that had been in that far-off place
So sad, treated so bad.

My my Kuiama, don't break your heart tryin'
To say how your ma and your pa passed away
And they left you to wander the ruin and decay
Real mean, that bullet machine.

See here Kuiama, now ten thousand miles
Is a long, long way and you're here today
And you won't go back so you might say
Hello, how do you do?

Kuia, stop your cryin', there's no bombs a-fallin'
No horsemen in the night a-ridin' through your dreams
And tearing at your life
Baby goodnight.

No more silver rain will hit your ground
And no more guns will sound
And no more life be drowned
No more trenches where the soldiers lie
And no more people die
Beneath that big black sky.

Wake up Kuiama, I got somethin' to tell you
It's just that I mean, well, that is to say,
That I'm trying to explain but I'll start again,
For you, I must be true.

Kuia, in this country, they got rules with no reason
They teach you to kill and they send you away
With your gun in your hand, you pick up your pay
So cool, that no mercy tool.

Kuia, please believe me? I just couldn't help myself.
I wanted to run but they gave me a gun
And they told me the duty I owed to my Fatherland.
I made my stand.

Kuia, I just shot them, I just blew their heads open,
And I heard them scream in their agony
Kuiama, she waits there for me
True blue, you saw it through.
