about

Ibrahim Halawa has been in prison in Egypt and should be released immediately as he has done nothing wrong. As a songwriter I'm releasing this song as a show of solidarity with Ibrahim. www.amnesty.ie/freeibrahim/

lyrics

Ibrahim Halawa I sing this song for you
For Freedom Believers round the world are with you

Have you seen the picture
Of the tanks in front of a man
After a crowd had gathered
No one knows how it began
Aggrieved they protested
Never had so many risen before
Many died there
Even the number is not know for sure

Freedom Believer
I hope your dancing in the Square tonight
Freedom Believer
I hope you dance into the morning light.
Freedom Believer
I know your in Tienanmen Square tonight
Freedom Believer
I hope you dance into the morning light.


Downtrodden and starving
Even while majestic buildings rise
May you be guided all the way into the light
Your strength an courage
Will overcome and you will persevere
Resisting oppression
Every hour of the day and through the year.

Freedom Believer
I hope your dancing in the Square tonight
Freedom Believer
I hope you dance into the morning light.

Ibrahim Halawa I sing this song for you
For Freedom Believers in Ireland are still with you

Help us find courage
I know we share the same dream
To never be satisfied
While we still hear our fellow humans screams
You’ll make it home again
And we will keep up the fight
Til you find freedom
We will stand up for human rights

Freedom Believer
I hope your dancing in the Square tonight
Freedom Believer
I hope you dance into the morning light.

Freedom Believer
I hope your dancing in the Square tonight
Freedom Believer
I hope you dance into the morning light.

Ibrahim Halawa
I hope your dancing in the Square tonight
Ibrahim Halawa
I hope you dance into the morning light.
