Like The Cicada

 

So many times I was killed
many times I died
none the less I’m still here
coming back to life.

I’m gratefull to adversity
and the hand holding the knife
for it did a bad job at killing me
And I carried on singing.

Singing to the sun
Like the cicada does
after a year under the ground
like a survivor
who is coming back from war

So many times I was vanished
Many times I dissapeared
I attended my own funeral
alone and crying.

I made a knot with the handkerchief*
and then I forgot
It was not the first time
and I carried on singing

Singing to the sun
Like the cicada does
after a year under the ground
like a survivor
who is coming back from war

So many times you were killed
many times you will come back to life
How many nights you will spend
in desperation
and when you start drowning
and darkness comes
somebody will rescue you
and carry on singing
Singing to the sun
Like the cicada does
after a year under the ground
like a survivor
who is coming back from war
