SOOLKING Liberté English lyrics

Note: Ouled El Bahdja is an Algerian group, their name means “sons of the joy”, with “the joy” being another name for the Algerian capital Algiers.

1st verse (Soolking) :
Apparently power can be bought, freedom, that’s all we’re left with
If the scenario repeats itself, we’ll be the actors of peace
So fake, your speeches are so fake
Yeah, so fake, that we end up getting used to them
But it’s over now, the cup is full
They’re screaming downstairs, can you hear their voices ?
The voices of all those families that are full of sorrow
The voices that are praying for a better future
Forgive me for existing, forgive my feelings
And if I ever say that I’m happy with you, then I’ll be lying
Forgive me for existing, forgive my feelings
Give me back my freedom, I’m asking you kindly

Pre chorus (Soolking) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

Chorus (Soolking & Ouled El Bahdja) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

2nd verse (Soolking) :
They thought we were dead, they were like “good riddance”
They thought that we were afraid of this dark past
There’s no one left, nothing but photos, nothing but lies
Nothing but thoughts that haunt us, that’s it, take me over there
Yeah, there’s no one left, over there, there’s only the people
Che Guevara, Matoub, take me over there
I’m writing this during the night for a better morning
Yeah, I’m writing in order to believe, destiny is uncertain
Yeah, I’m writing because we are, we are hand in hand
I’m writing because we are the golden generation

Pre chorus (Soolking) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

Chorus (Soolking & Ouled El Bahdja) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

3rd verse (Ouled El Bahdja & Soolking) :
Free the one who’s in hostage, free the deceased, there’s a defect within judiciary
Free all those that are taken hostage, that’s all we have
All we have is freedom
And we are the affliction ourselves, oh government, this fire won’t burn out
This is our message, our last words
Soolking and Ouled El Bahdja

Pre chorus (Soolking) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

Chorus (Soolking & Ouled El Bahdja) :
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It starts in our hearts
Freedom, freedom, freedom
It doesn’t scare us

  1. P1/part in french :

    it seems like the power is for those who got money
    freedom, that’s all we have left
    If the scenario is repeated, we will be actors of peace
    So false, your speeches are so false
    Yeah, so wrong, we ended up getting used to it
    But it’s over, the glass is full
    Down here, they are crying ,can you hear their voices?
    The voice of these families full of sorrow
    The voice that prays for a better destiny
    Excuse me for existing, excuse my feelings
    And if I say that I’m happy with you, know that I’m lying
    Excuse me for existing, excuse my feelings
    Give me back my freedom, I’m kindly asking you for it.

    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    It starts from our hearts
    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    We are not scared of it

    They thought we were dead, they said “good riddance”
    They thought we were afraid of this dark past (terrorism i guess)
    There is no one left, only pictures, (pic of the “president”)
    and lies
    That thoughts that gnaw at us, enough, take me there (algeria)
    Yes, there is no one left, there is only the people
    Che Guevara, Matoub,(persons who contributed to free algeria from corruption) take me there
    I write this song one night for a new tomorrow
    Yes, I write to believe, the future is uncertain
    Yes, I write because we are, we are hand in hand
    I write because we are the golden generation

    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    It starts in our hearts
    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    We are not scared of it
    X(2)

    P2/ part in algerian dialecte (Darija) :

    Release the one who is hostage
    Release the one you killed (our country)
    there was a mistake in justice
    free those who are hostage
    that’s all we have.
    we only have freedom
    we are strong
    oh dirty power
    our fire will not go out.
    this is our message, our ultimate claim.

    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    It starts from our hearts
    Freedom, freedom, freedom
    X(2)
