Song for Timor Leste

Well I went overseas and waited for the trees to grow. I don't mean literally but I was lucky enough to bond with those Unfamiliar people, Unfamiliar people, Unfamiliar people, but they're the same as you and me

A hot day with a cool breeze, eating breakfast on the beach climbing the stairs to Cristo Rei the first hour of our first day. In the Capital called Dili, a run down broken city
a stones throw away I'd go back any day

Across the Timor Sea, the residents fought for control
of their beloved country so many unlucky to be trampled
by those unfamiliar people, unfamiliar people
unfamiliar people, but they're the same as you and me

Onboard the Nakroma, with members of my family
a pregnant sister and a soon to be grandma headed for Oecusse. But when we arrived we couldn't expect any more from these people with a horrible past waving and smiling and offering food, though this meal might be their last.

Generosity you wouldn't believe and genuinely happy to be. Alive and showing you the positive aspects of their beloved country

Bom Dia e Obrigado, Maun and Mana from Timor Leste
We're Malai who love you dearly and we're the same, you and me

Become familiar people, become familiar people
We’ve become familiar people, we're the same, you and me. We've become familiar people, become familiar people. The most beautiful of all the worlds people, the wonderful East Timorese
