Allan Taylor - Libertas Ragusa (Freedom for Dubrovnik)



Broken and battered, beaten and torn
Dreams that are shattered and left to burn
Fight the intruder, turn back the foe
Hold to the border and let the world know

You will rise again
You will rise again
In time you will grow
For in truth you know
You will rise again

Times of confusion, times of war
Times of delusion of what it's all for
In the living and dying and the starting anew
The soul of the city is part of you

And you will rise again
You will rise again
In time you will grow
For in truth you know
You will rise again

Disparate nations hold out their hands
With offers of friendship to your troubled lands
Libertas Dubrovnik, libertas for all
In your cry for help we will answer your call
And you will rise again
You will rise again
In time you will grow
For in truth you know
You will rise again

I came as a stranger, I left as a friend
I look to the day when I'll see you again
We'll all stand together at the end of the day
When the pain and the suffering have faded away

You will rise again
You will rise again
In time you will grow
For in truth you know
You will rise again

You will rise again
You will rise again
In time you will grow
For in truth you know
You will rise again
You will rise again
