From the recording Eritrean Boy

Lyrics

Eritrean boy where you going this time
Eritrean boy whom you’re leaving behind
Eritrean boy with a pain in your heart
Eritrean boy where you going this time

You’ve been called a refugee in a foreign land
Paid the price for a cause you could not understand
Oh you’ve been through the desert reaching out for freedom
But it was an illusion you found out on your way

You’ve been to many places
You’ve seen so many faces
But losing all the traces
Leading back to where you once belonged

Working hard for a future far away from your home
Trying to find a solution to your destiny
Now you are crying out of sorrow in a moment of truth
Sad and lonely is the feeling when you can’t go on

Eritrean boy where you going this time
Eritrean boy whom you’re leaving behind
Eritrean boy with a pain in your heart
Eritrean boy where you going this time

Freedom fighters shed all their blood
Struggling only in the name of the land
Day by day as the years rolled by
Arms in arms they fought till the day they died

Eritrea the sun is shining Eritra Imbaba
Eritrea the sun is shining Eritra Imbaba

Beloved land to all of your people
The time has come to celebrate
Sacrifice everything for tomorrow
Till the day of victory … Oh

Eritrea the sun is shining Eritra Imbaba
Eritrea the sun is shining Eritra Imbaba
