K’naan-Wavin’ Flag (ost.FIFA World Cup 2010)

FIFA World Cup 2010

Kalau dengar yang versi soundtrack-nya world cup, ni lagu penuh semangat dan kebersamaan banget. Padahal, kalau dengar versi aslinya, ini lagu tentang perjuangan dan ke-pantang menyerah-an. Mungkin menyuarakan apa yang terjadi di berbagai belahan dunia sana, dimana masih terjadi peperangan, orang-orang yang berjuang dengan sebenar-benarnya perjuangan.

Di bawah ini, gw kasih lirik versi asli dan versi FIFAnya.

Ooooooh Wooooooh

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 are, exaliftin ,

as we lose our inhabition,
Celebration its around us,
every nation, all around us

Singin forever young, singin songs underneath that sun

Lets 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
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
Ooooooh Wooooooh
Ooooooh Wooooooh

Give you freedom, give you fire,
give you reason, take you higher
See the champions, take the field now,
you define us, make us feel proud
In the streets are, exaliftin,
every loser in ambition,
Celebration, its around us,
every nations, all around us

Singin forever young,
singin songs underneath that sun
Lets rejoice in the beautiful game.
And together at the end of the day.

WE ALL SAY

dan berikut ini versi original-nya

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

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.
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest,
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Except 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, so for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

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 Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back, And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back, And then it goes back
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)

And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back, And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back, And then it goes back

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag
