  • Lyrics
  • You said you'd be there for me
    In times of trouble when I need you and I'm down
    And likewise you need friendship
    It's from my side pure love but I see lately things have been changing
    You have goals to achieve
    But the roads you take are broad and heartless
    The wounds you make you are no aware
    You throw stones
    Can you see that I am human I am breathing
    But you don't give a damn

    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you see the pain you're causing
    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you see the pain you're causing

    Blood blood blood blood is rushing

    And now the world is asleep
    How will you ever wake her up when she is deep in her dreams, wishing
    And yet so many die
    And still we think that it is all about us
    It's all about you
    You sold your soul to the evil and the lust
    And the passion and the money and you
    Innocent ones die, people hunger for decades
    Suffer under civilized armed-robbers, modern slaveholders

    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you see the pain you're causing
    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you see the pain you're causing

    Blood blood blood keeps rushing

    Evaded, eliminated, erased, interrogated
    Our tradition, our love for our fellow countrymen
    Our property, our resources our pride

    Can you feel my heart beating
    No no no you don't

    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you feel the pain you're causing
    Can you feel my heart is beating
    Can you feel the pain you're causingWriter/s: NASIR JONES, NNEKA-LUCIA EGBUNA, FARHAD SAMADZADA
