Wavin' Flag - Young Artists For Haiti

Mganda itong kantang nabuo para tulungan ang bansang Haiti na tinamaan ng lindol ngayong taong ito. Nagsama sama ang mga young Canadian artist credited as "Young Artists For Haiti" , upang awitin ang Wavin' Flag na originally ay ginawa ni K'naan as his single, ni - rephrase, at presto , isang bagong awitin na kinompose for the benefit of those who were affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti last January 12 , 2010.

Topbilled by well-known international singers like Nelly Furtado, Avril Lavigne,
Deryck Whibley of Sum 41, Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan and the new heartthrob singing sensation Justine Bieber.

Ginamit din ito bilang theme song sa FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Check out the lyrics and the video:

When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin' flag

Born from a throne
Older than Rome
But violent prone
Poor people zone

[Nelly Furtado]
But it’s my home
All I have known

[Sam Roberts]
Where I got grown
but now its gone

[Avril Lavigne]
Out of the darkness
in came the carnage
threatening my very survival

[Pierre Bouvier of Simple]
Fractured my streets
and broke all my dreams

[Tyler Connolly of Theory of a Deadman]
now Feels like defeat to wretched retreat

So we strugglin’

[Kardinal Offishall]
Fighting to eat

And we wonderin’

[Kardinal Offishall]
If we’ll be free

[Jully Black]
We cannot wait for some fateful day
it’s too far away so right now I’ll say

[All - Chorus]
When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag
(And then it goes back x3)

Ahhho ahhho ahhho

So many wars, settling scores

[Deryck Whibley of Sum 41]
All that we’ve been through
and now there is more

[Serena Ryder]
I hear them say love is the way

[Jacob Hoggard of Hedley]
Love is the answer that’s what they say

[Emily Haines]
But were not just dreamers
of broken down grievers

[Hawsley Workman]
Our hand will reach us
and we will not see ya

This can’t control us
no it can’t hold us down

[Chin Injeti]
We gon' pick it up even though we still struggling

[Pierre Lapointe]
Au nom de la survie (In the name of survival)
Find More lyrics at

and we wondering

[Pierre Lapointe]
Battant pour nos vies (Fighting for our lives)

We patiently wait
for some other day

[Fefe Dobson and Esthero]
thats too far away so right now I say

[All - Chorus X2]

[Drake - Rapping]
Uhh – well alright
How come when the media stops covering
and there’s a little help from the government
we forget about the people still struggling
and assume that its really all love again nahh
see we don’t have to wait for things to break apart
if you weren’t involved before it’s never too late to start
you probably think that it’s too far to even have to care
well take a look at where you live what if it happened there?
you have to know the urge to make a change lies within
and we can be the reason that they see the flag rise again

[Nikki Yanofsky & Drake]
When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag

and then it goes back

[Justin Nozuka]
and then it goes back

[Nikki Yanofsky]
Then it goes back

[Chorus - All X2]

[Justin Bieber]
When I get older
When I get older
I will be stronger
just like a wavin' flag.
