lyrics

[Intro]
I am a human
Give me ... (repeat)

[Verse 1]
I want to introduce myself, I am Mohamed
I came here to lend a thousand hands to help
My problems were solved
The SOS is an idea from long ago
And now look at the many smiles they have created
See how many deprived children now feel safe
It’s a feeling that can’t be described with words
I give everyone who works in it a rose
I give everyone hope and motivation
It’s a tree deeply rooted in the land
Adorned with leaves and protecting its fruits in complete responsibility
We carve on that tree the stories of success from within the walls of the SOS

[Chorus]
I am a human
Give me
Give me a smile
Give me a right

[Verse 2]
I am a child living in peace, living in safety
The SOS taught me sympathy
I saw dreams
I heard words
These words will stay in my heart
Enclosed with happiness and sympathy
These days I rap and play violin

[Verse 3]
Now it’s a reality
In the village I was lost between a dream and the present
From the first moment I was here
I was no longer lost
I found myself
I started screaming at the top of my lungs,
‘I am here world, I am here’

[Chorus]
I am a human
Give me
Give me a smile
Give me a right

[Verse 4]
I took my first step in darkness
But now there’s a candle lit by the SOS
That’s how I feel
It gives me happiness in the time of sadness
It’s hope in the time of pain
I learn to speak
To draw
To dream
And to express
Love is growing
Stories are written
It makes me a child prepared for the future
My brothers and sisters are working hard
This is my story
And I was 10 days old when it started
Yet it will never end
I draw paintings
I whisper to myself my feelings
I love
I hope
I feel
And I become tired
But at the end I become successful
I hold a pen and I paint the sun
I play a melody
And I break free from my cage

[Chorus]
I am a human
Give me
Give me a smile
Give me a right
