Wavin' Flag
K'naan Lyrics


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
But 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 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, 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

Oh, oh, oh

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

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Give me freedom, give me fire
Give me reason, take me higher
See the champions take the field now
You define us, make us feel proud

In the streets our heads are lifting
As we lose our inhibition
Celebration it surround us
Every nation all around us

Singing forever young
Singing songs underneath the Sun
Let's rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day

We all say

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

Isso é uma obra que vai ficar marcada pra sempre na história, uma das melhores músicas já feitas pra copa do mundo

Lorena Vasquez

La canción más épica de todas. La escuchas y se te insertan ganas inmediatas de ver fútbol, jugar fútbol, hablar de fútbol, etc. Eso es lo que tendría que lograr una canción de Mundial, no fue la oficial, pero es la mejor.

Marco Quispe

Lloré cuando la escuché hoy en la ceremonia, es la primer canción que escuche de un mundial, todos los recuerdos de pibe volvieron

Miguel Correia

A copa de 2010 foi a melhor no quesito músicas, essa e Waka Waka ficarão pra história como as melhores músicas de copa do mundo, impossível não arrepiar e ter nostalgia com essas músicas!

A copa da África eleveram muito o nível! Difícil superar a qualidade desse mundial, o do Brasil chegou um pouco perto mas não superou.
