    I was there
    I felt you there
    I came here
    I survived

    I felt alone
    I wanna go home
    I need you
    2 help me rise

    I am here
    I am alive
    but I'm going towards the light

    I ran I ran I ran
    because
    I saw a theif in the night.......

    He took my wish
    He took my gifts
    Had me walking on the line

    But I know I know I'm sure I know

    that what he took was mine....

    and if it's mine
    I need to know
    tell them let my people go...

    because they never ever had the right

    to ever steal the show.....

    I love you more.

    They tried 2 conquer us but defeat isn't in us, 4 we are mighty warriors.
