Who Will Wave The Flag? Spain @ Netherland?

Lagu Waving Flag merakam kenangan pahit K'naan semasa membesar di Somalia


Ketika saya menaip entri ini, kemuncak Piala Dunia 2010 akan berlangsung kurang 24 jam daripada sekarang. Pasukan Sepanyol akan menentang Netherland (baca: Belanda). Manakala perlawanan penentuan tempat ketiga antara Jerman dan Uruguay sedang berlangsung (2-2). Perlawanan yang hanya berlangsung 4 tahun sekali ini menyatukan banyak perkara.

Saya cuma mahu mengambil peluang mengingatkan para peminta bola tegar atau pun bermusim (oh, ni biasanya kaum saya la kan?) cerita dunia yang bukan memihak kepada kita. Maksud saya dunia yang berat sebelah dan zalim.

Menyoroti lirik asal lagu tema Piala Dunia; Waving Flag oleh K'naan menyingkapi cerita derita penduduk Somalia dan harapan mereka mahu melihat cahaya di masa hadapan sangat menyentuh hati. Saya mahu berkongsi rasa ini dengan kalian semua.

Hayati dan selami suara hati mereka.
Waving Flag Lyrics - Knaan

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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus] x2

(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)

[Chorus] x2
