I Have a Right


Sonata Arctica Lyrics
“I Have A Right”

Give me the right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

Father, there’s a little flower
Beautiful and different, all alone… All alone…
Is it so, Dad? I’m not supposed to
Make the world anew, and be like you? Am I you?

Give me the gift to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

…Right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be me…

You made it clear right from the start
I am to take your sour heart within, one sad day…
But I will never teach my son
Embittered history, tried and true, ’cause I’m not you…

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To have every gift… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

Give me the eyes so I see,
Give me ears so I hear,
Give me love so I know what love is,
Give me the freedom to think,
To believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

[Spoken:]
I have a special right to grow up,
and to develope physically and spiritually
in a healthy and normal way.
Free, and with dignity.
I have the right to love, and understanding.
My parents have special responsibilites
for my education and guidance.
I should be taught peace, understanding, tollerance,
and friendship among all people.

So give me the gift to hear, to see,
The love, the freedom to choose the things I feel,
To be right for the world you’ll leave me…
Give something.

Give me the right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

Right to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard…

I don’t even feel alive if it’s not cold outside.

And feeling at least a little bit alive is a big deal for me these days (weeks, months, years…).

I’m not even too prideful to admit that I’m just so tired of all I fell into that state where, I really really just don’t have anything left in me to look for a solution and fight, a just sit from day to day and wait to see if someone’s gonna magically appear and take me out of this or if I’m going to end begore that happens.
