lyrics

I’m standing at your door you can’t invite me in
I am your brother, I am your brother
At the temple door you try to stone then
I am a relative, I am a relative
Now I starve at your feet, you will not feed my need
You will let me fall, will you let me fall?

I will not be forgotten, why do you call me falasha
I will not be forgotten, falasha, falasha

I’ve kept the faith for year, trying to join the others
I am no stranger, I am no stranger
I cannot not be profane, I have not brought disgrace
I am your family, I am your family
A thousand years will pass, still you will forget
Your forefather’s heirs, your forefather’s heirs

I will not be forgotten, why do you call me falasha
I will not be forgotten, falasha, falasha

You stand and watch me die, I am your Father’s kin
We are brethren, we are brethren
I am not dead yet, victim of victims
I am your kin, I am your kin
Many days have passed, the dying begins
As we are dying why are we not let in

I will not be forgotten, why do you call me falasha
I will not be forgotten, falasha, falasha

I’m knocking at your door, you can’t invite me in
Can’t you feed your sisters and brethren
You say you don’t know me, I have not failed you
I am no stranger, I am not stranger
Why are we passed over, should our time end?
Why won’t you let me in, why won’t you let me in?

I will not be forgotten, why do you call me falasha
I will not be forgotten, falasha, falasha
