lyrics

Can you see me?

I fled my village
As the flames began to rise
Looking back
Tears filled my eyes
Just the clothes on my back
Father's ring to remind me
Of the life left behind

In to this world I disappear
I disappear just like the stars
Like stars that fade in the morning light
Can you see me?
I'm still here

On an overcrowded boat
Desperate and weary
Adrift
At the mercy of the sea
No food, No water
Struggling for my life
Somehow
I survived

In to this world I disappear
I disappear just like the stars
Like stars that fade in the morning light
Can you see me?
I'm still here

Are you out there..
Can you hear me?

Now I
I'm a refugee
My family, my village
Far behind me
I walk alone
I search for home
By the light
Of the stars in the sky

In to this world I disappear
I disappear just like the stars
Like stars that fade in the morning light
Can you see me?
