Rafahafahana (Freedom)

How I wish, how I wish…My dearest wish
Is that you be my friend
And that you take my hands
Alas! Alas! I’m asking for the sky
Because, you, Freedom,
You always pass me by!

Here I am, so sad and lost
I’ll never have what I long for most
And yet my love will never run dry
It’s stubborn and wild, for no-one but you
