Treasure Island

Noorie Ali

(22.07.1988 / Yorkshire)

* 3 3 If I had the Courage to -


If I had the courage to
Stand tall I would


If I had the courage to
Speak with my tongue freely
Speak of utter truth
I would

If I had the courage to
Fight for my nation
I would


If I had the courage to
Amend broken bridges
I would


If I had the courage to
Deny all false allegations against my bones
I would

I would if I had a chance to
Without being brutally attacked
I would
