"Fire of Freedom" (karaoke)

"Fire of Freedom" (sheet music)


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 tears

But you still look beautiful though you're fighting 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 jokes on you and me

Ten years later, we're still searchin' for the sun

But I want you to know that our day will come

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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 got to change, oh my sisters and brothers

 

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Anois ar theact an tsamhraidh

 

Don't use the color 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

 

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Anois ar theact an tsamhraidh

 

Power to the people sang Johnny Lennon

Twenty 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

 

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Anois ar theact an tsamhraidh

 

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Oro 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

Anois ar theact an tsamhraidh
