image of cd titled: a kid like me by sonny rolfe

Released in 2005. Remastered in 2012 & 2015. Music & lyrics by Sonny Rolfe featuring Andy Rolfe and Jan Osment. Cover design and artwork by Jan Osment.
This CD was a hard road to go down, it tells of the most frightening time of my life, the saddest and most uncertain. Many adults thought they were going to die - lots did - with their kids. Its hard to understand why someone wants to kill you when you're a kid. I still remember my desperate want for sweets or chocolate. My stomach still turns at the sound of a siren - sometimes in a storm I think I hear gunfire out at sea - and I still dream of our house falling on us, though it never did. I was lucky and sometimes I was happy. Listen to the clip by clicking on the song title, it will start playing via your usual music player.
