Song Lyrics

18th of July on the banks of a not well known river
I started a journey to where I am now
Troubled soul, trouble maker
Guided by the drums of my creator
Toward a rhythm and rhyme, a melody line
Of a song called freedom, which once heard
Will never leave your head

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Whoa, yeah

Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
This love it can’t be beat
We’re neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need
While I can breathe
Breathe, while I can breathe

All those who stood together, fist in air now know this, that
Real division’s not a scar on the land, but in the heart of every man
Who began as a kiss, not to resist
A knotted fist, now an open hand
An open face, an open page
Where history might rewrite its rage

And the life you get to live
Is the one you give away
To forget who to forgive
Is a good thing

Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
This love will not be beat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need
While I can breathe
Breathe, not while I can breathe

Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
This love will not be beat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need
While I can breathe
Breathe, not while I can breathe

Ro-la-la-ro-la…etc
