Set me free


Every time I peeped out of my window
all I see was the world that passed me by
as it rain cat and dog in April
while Peter and Paul dances in the rain

working fourteen hours per day
planning to make ends meet
standing by the barricade I pounded, why?

My lady is miles away
only the memories of your voice rings deed down in me
as we sat and call like friend without faces
loving each other without seeing.

Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
