Finishing a heartfelt song

September 10, 2018

With the help of my new Producer Josh Needleman I'm putting the finishing touches on a song dear to my heart about my father and grandfather. Their experience during and after the Civil War in Spain, and the character they demonstrated is what resonates with me and what I hope to convey in the lyrics. Here are the words...the final track is coming very soon.

 

FREEDOM (C) RAMON BERGUER 2016

Born on a windy day as the cold fog gripped the shore
The sounds of war were barely gone yet the victors wanted more
You were a boy in a world beyond control

 

Your father was a righteous man once trapped on the wrong side

Though taken on his wedding day he managed to survive

In twisted times his words were always clear

 

He said "I live my life my own way, fighting for who I am"

"And singing Freedom, Freedom, Freedom, Freedom"

 

In a world where rulers self-proclaimed what’s wrong and what is right

The choice you just had to make was to shrink or turn and fight

A nation trapped but you would not be bound

 

Books were burned and minds were numbed by the cassock and the gun

A learned man a mortal threat lest darkness be undone

In a time of silence your words were always clear

 

You said "I live my life my own way, fighting for who I am"

"And singing Freedom, Freedom, Freedom, Freedom"

 

 

After many years I can understand why saying “No” is to take a stand

A single word crying out no slander, no silence, no lies that deny freedom’s song


I hear the sound of children's play drifting through the park
Born completely free to choose they’ll follow their own hearts

I hope these words are whispered in their ear

 


"I live my life my own way fighting for who I am"

"and singing Freedom, Freedom, Freedom, Freedom"
