Day by Day Song Lyrics

Verse 1 sarina

From the sun to england
No plane just a boat
Vision of a better life
Built on hope
Left Family behind
Many mouths to feed
Working late hours
To build big dreams

New generation for
I was born ((preach))
Learn your eduction
Then seeds are sown
Knowledge is the key
for the mind to see
walk in the footsteps
of those who believe.....

in a brighter future
sacrifice, compromise, want better life
lets sing these words
((we have the power to shape our lives its our birth right))
Building dreamsgo where the compass
can teach you things
into unknown our global home
like moving with our village in a nomad roam.

Travelling to a land far away
Striving for a better life day by day
Seeds of the future planted today

Verse 2 Mohammed Yahya

We Escaped war, Trade shores
Home unstable
Fled to a land of derogatory labels

Far away from home
Where the people are cold
And I'm not a human being
But a colour alone

So I swallowed my pain
And strained without shame
Regardless of the struggle this would never be in vein

We would never give up
My people were rising up
Driven by ambition
It was time to reconstruct

Even though some tried to enslave our souls
They could never come in between our goals.
Following the footsteps of those before
With a heart filled with hope we will chant once more.


Travelling to a land far away
Striving for a better life day by day
Seeds of the future planted today
