Gregory Porter, Common, Keyon Harrold & Andrea Pizziconi - Running (Refugee Song)

Lyrics

Verse 1
Can you see strength in my eyes?
I used to sleep through the night.
Then horror they came;
There were no lights, no sirens, just guns;
It was violent.
And I had to run or die.

Chorus
I’m Running.
I’m Running.
I’m Running.
I’m Running.

Verse 2
So much time wasted in tents;
Seventeen years inside a fence;
I ran from a war, homeless, no school, no future;
I’m a ghost, but not finished I will rise!

Pre Chorus
Say, ooh, are we all alone?
Say, no, I’ll never forget my home.

Chorus
Running from the place that I know,
I’m running, what direction should I go?
I’m running, so tired and so worn;
I won’t stop until I’m safe and strong.

Verse 3 (Rap verse)
Where I'm running to is running through my mind;
Always on the run;
Am I running out of time?

Darkness in my way;
I pray that the sun will shine.
Started from the bottom and that was underlined.

By the place that I'm from; sometime is un-divine;
I hear them songs of freedom, and they running through my mind;

Close my eyes; imagine a place next to me;
Where I can't be labeled a refugee.
Destiny, oh, somewhere down these dark roads;
Yeah, we the lost tribe but we found our souls.

Cold rain, all pain, I left along the way;
I fight through the night, just to find a stronger day.

Chorus
Running from the place that I know,
I’m running, what direction should I go?
Keep running, so tired and so worn;
I won’t stop until I’m safe and strong.

Bridge
Oooo 
Had to flee the place you love;
Oooo 
Tough as nails when things got rough;
Oooo 
Many fathers told their sons and daughters;
Say oooo 
Don’t stop running ‘till you’re home!

Say oooo, Refugee song.
Say oooo, Refugee song.
Say oooo, Refugee song.
Say oooo, Refugee song.
