Myela
Nick Mulvey Lyrics


It's in my mind again
Troubled by the images I've seen
Eighteen months ago
They left their homes in the rubble of Mayadeen
God only knows the pain you feel to leave your country looking for a home
But they'd rather die once in the sea than dying everyday a little more

They came to Lebanon
With another million desperate souls
Sing with Ibrahim and all the families at the Valley of Bekaa
God only knows the pain he'd feel to leave behind Fareesa and Adeel
But they said better to die once in the sea than dying everyday you stay
Here with me

Myela, Myela, Myela, Myela

Her name is Sonda Jade
Twenty-one years old, she's Sudanese
She's four months pregnant now
Alone in Lampedusa, Sicily
God only knows how she survived, so many other families have died
She says, "Please help me find a way to stay and give a future to the child I carry inside"

Myela, Myela, Myela, Myela

Oh, help me in my hopelessness and free me from the cage of civilization
Save me from my selfishness and my indifference to my neighbor

I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor
I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor
I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor
I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor

(I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor)
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
(I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor)
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
(I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor)
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
(I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor)
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor
I am your neighbor, you are my neighbor

Myela, Myela
(Myela, Myela, Myela, Myela)
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
Freedom from the cage of this supposed civilization
Myela, Myela

Come and get me, come and get me
Come and get me, come and get me
If you can, if you can
Come and get me, come and get me
Come and get me, come and get me
If you can, if you can
