about

the hummingbird is a remarkable and inspiring creature. The kora part of 'colibri!' is inspired by the wings of the hummingbird, who beat in a figure-eight and allow the bird to fly in any direction as well as upside down.

lyrics

feel the lightness of my body
feel the air that fills my chest
feel the rain that cools my flight
feel myself crossing to the other side

rising up because i know i can
flying over all the people's land
followin' rivers to their sources
in every eye i see eternal resources

dam de dum dum da-dum

i'm filled with hope at the sight of you
billions of people with a common truth
we need clean water, good food
don't seem like much but there's lots to do

i'm rising up 'cuz i've seen that fire
fighting fire only breeds desire
for more than ever unearthly needs
each day feedin' lies and a ruthless greed

not on earth waiting for to die
gotta share every drop of life
fly with the guides that show the way
and walk with the people to a balanced day

won't kill, corrupt or seek with violence
freedom depends on common agreement
peace is the shape of the natural law
whose limits are blessings - not flaws

~

fly little bird
believe the voices that you heard
we've all told you our little truths
hoping what we've learned could be of some use
fly!

vol p'tit oiseau
croire les voix que t'entendue
on t' à tous raconte nos verités
en espérant que ça va t'inspirer à voler
vol!
