Lively colors

All these rumors
That say black or white
So it’s a name or skin
That will decide rank
I can’t breath anymore
Under the weight of this stupidity
Even blood, even moon
Whatever they say, whatever they say
All these “I-we” are so heavy
That some knock down
Their only crime to this day?
Being born from their mothers
I can’t breathe anymore
Under the weight of this stupidity
Even blood, even moon
Whatever they say
 
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
Of lively colors
 
There are sometimes days
Where the sky is so beautiful
That I come, I admit,
To envy birds
To be but a witness
To our inhuman acts
And to be able to fly
Fly towards other tomorrows
 
I think of you often
You disappointing them
Who divide everything
I think of you often
Who trample us
I’m disappointed, really
 
So I pray the wind
Will bring you back to us
So I pray to the wind
in order to change everything
 
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
Of lively colors
Of lively colors
 
I leave them to time, these pot stories
I avoid it, it’s true
To intervene
So I sing a little
Everyone’s doing their best
 
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
I want to live, laugh, free
I am a woman of lively colors
And that means everything
Of lively colors
Of lively colors
 
Thanks!
