Because of You - Balund-a 2018 Song

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

On the darkest night you are my light            
Because of you I am a proud black man
Able to walk our land
My culture is strong
Proud black man

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

I‘m a white man and have a second chance       
Thanks to the Bundjalung 

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

Who are they to call us bad?                                 
Why do we let them make us mad? 

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

Bugalbeh Balund-a 
Because of her I’m free
Jingiwalla

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

Because of them I’m a dad
Because of them I’m so happy
Because of them I’m alive
Because of them I’m stronger

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

But for now I’m just 
Another man from Bligh Park

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of the Elders I get a second chance

Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can
Because of you I can

I knew this would be the one
Will you be there? Only time will tell
Black Red Gold are the colours of my life

Jingiwalla – bugal

Balund-a ----------------One Love
Let’s get together and feel alright
Balund-a -----------------a second chance
Give thanks to the Warhlubal tribe
‘Cause we’re on their land

Let’s get together and feel alright
Give thanks to the Warhlubal tribe
‘Cause we’re on their land
REPEAT
