Fire Of Freedom

This song is by Black 47 and appears on the album Fire Of Freedom (1993).

darlin, darlin' you've put up with so much
betrayed by your leaders, abandoned by your church
i've watched you suffer, now you're older than your years
but you still look beautiful, though you're fightin' back the tears

you can break down my door, you can even strip search me
never gonna take away my human dignity
beat me, shoot me, flame keep on burnin'
never gonna put out the fire of freedom

when we were children, we thought we would be
god's anointed but the joke was on you and me
10 years later, we're still searchin' for the sun
but i want you to know that our day will come

so many hopes and dreams lying in pieces
all of us betrayed by politicians' speeches
i want you to know, i'll love you forever
our dreams will continue in the eyes of our children

out in the streets all i hear is violence
but the authorities react with silence
one law for you, for me it's another
things gotta change, oh my sisters and brothers

óró 'se do bheatha 'bhaile
anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh

don't use the colour of my skin as an issue
hey politician, your lies are gonna get you
chickens comin' home to roost in the white house
blood on the streets if you don't shut your big mouth

óró 'se do bheatha 'bhaile
anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh

power to the people sang johnny lennon
20 years later we're back at the beginnin'
sick of waitin' round for divine intervention
take to the streets if you're lookin' for redemption

óró 'se do bheatha 'bhaile
anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh
