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

"Wavin' Flag (The Celebration Mix)"

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
Oh oh oh oh 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.
Unify us,
Make us feel proud.

In the streets our
Heads are liftin'
As we lose our
Inhibition.

Celebration.
It surrounds us.
Every nation.
All around us.

Staying forever young,
Singin' 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.

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

So, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.

Give you freedom,
Give you fire,
Give you reason,
Take you higher.

See the champions
Take the field now.
Unify us,
Make us feel proud.

In the streets our
Heads are liftin'
As we lose our
Inhibition.

Celebration.
It surrounds us.
Every nation.
All around us.

Staying forever young,
Singin' 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.

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

So, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.

They'll call me "Freedom",
Just like a wavin' flag.

So, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
Now, wave your flag.
