Siria, una vignetta del cartoonist brasiliano Latuff.‎
You raised up your flag
With the Egyptian tide
And took to the streets
For your future and your pride
And the cops and the soldiers
Some took your side
The rest pulled their triggers
And 3,000 died

Oh, Syria,
We are listening
To your songs of the streets
We are listening
Through the bullets and the bombs
We can still hear you sing
They can crush the flowers
But they can't stop the Spring

Now you're walking a path
So many walked before
That tense place between
Social change and civil war
Now it's a moment of pushing
A global open door
For the people of the world
To move forward

Oh, Syria,
We are listening
To your songs of the streets
We are listening
Through the bullets and the bombs
We can still hear you sing
They can crush the flowers
But they can't stop the Spring

You raised up your flag
For the world to see
Your courage and commitment
In your fight to be free
And you're suffering and pain
It wasn't in vain
Cuz there's a lot more flowers
Blooming

Oh, Syria,
We are listening
To your songs of the streets
We are listening
Through the bullets and the bombs
We can still hear you sing
They can crush the flowers
But they can't stop the Spring
