Wavin’ Flag – World Cup 2010 – Haiti Victims

Sometimes we need songs like that .. Songs that make difference . This is the song sang in the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. World’s Song… It called for Peace and Unity , to stop war and poverty and it called for LOVE.

It was also sang for Haiti victims as well. And as Kinan said ” it started as my song , but it was there’s song …everybody’s song “

Yea it only takes love to make a change . For the power of  love is even more stronger than any destructive weapon.

Leave you with the song and it marvelous lyrics.

Wavin’ Flag lyrics
Songwriters: Lawrence, Phillip; Mars, Bruno; Warsame, Keinan

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, oh

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
A violent prone, poor people zone
But it’s my home, all I have known
Where I got grown, streets we would roam

Out of the darkness, I came the farthest
Among the hardest survival
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak
Accept no defeat, surrender, retreat

So we struggling, fighting to eat
And we wondering when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait for that fateful day
It’s not far away, but for now we say

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, oh

So many wars, settling scores
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor
I heard them say ‘love is the way’
‘Love is the answer,’ that’s what they say

But look how they treat us, make us believers
We fight their battles, then they deceive us
Try to control us, they couldn’t hold us
‘Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers

But we struggling, fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait for that faithful day
It’s not far away but for now we say

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then is goes

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes
And then it goes

And everybody will be singing it
And you and I will be singing it
And we all will be singing it

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, oh

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger just like a wavin’ flag
Just like a wavin’ flag, just like a wavin’ flag
Flag, flag, just like a wavin’ flag

2010

 

Here another year comes . 2009 is gone and became nothing but a history . A friend once told me :

” The 2009 book has now been closed, we cannot re-write it, but we can definitely read it and learn from our past history (Yes it is part of our History now!).

The first page of the 2010 book is waiting “

That book is closed now.. and i don’t wanna remember it . Yea its gone but with pain , with tearsthat won’t ever dry up. It was a hard time and hard days they left me scars that won’t heal . 2010 started and i couldn’t smile .But now i wanna do this in a different way . I want this year to be better , i want to accomplish more and gain myself back .

The year has already started and only God knows what it hides. Let’s just pray that it won’t carry more pain because i can’t take any more . And am not as strong as when this journey started. It took alot of me .

I hope this year brings me good surprises , I really wish that things change. I wish i find the love and the dreams that i have longed for.

Always and only ,

Hoope
