SHWEKEY – We Are A Miracle (Official Video)

by yossi August 15, 2016

Yesterday, Tisha B’av, I was sitting on the floor reading about the horrors and suffering of our nation.
It’s been so many years crying so many tears…..
Instead of waiting for our planned live-show release, I decided, there’s no better time to release my “WE ARE A MIRACLE” music video than today!
Let this film be a tool to help teach and remind our generation what we’ve been through. But, more importantly, focus on how lucky and thankful we should be that we are a part the greatest nation in the world! A world that still has a lot of unconditional hatred towards Israel and the Jewish people.
And just like we persevered through the worst atrocities, we will continue to flourish and be proud of our heritage!
Let’s sing this song as one and see and feel that each one of us is a great MIRACLE…

Lyrics:
A nation in the desert
We started out as slaves
Made it to the motherland,
and then came the Crusades
It’s been so many years
crying so many tears
Don’t you know,
don’t you really know?
We are pushed to the ground
Through our faith we are found
Standing strong
The Spanish inquisition
wanted us to bow…
But our backs aint gonna bend
Never then, and never now
It’s been so many years
crying so many tears
Don’t you know,
don’t you really know?
We are pushed to the ground
Through our faith we are found
Standing strong

Chorus:
We are a miracle
We are a miracle
We were chosen with love
And embraced from above
We are a miracle

Extermination was the plan
When the devil was a man
But the few who carried on
Live for millions who are gone
It’s been so many years
crying so many tears
Don’t you know,
don’t you really know?
Generations have passed
Only we’re here to last…
Standing strong

Chorus:
We are a miracle
We are a miracle
We were chosen with love
And embraced from above
We are a miracle

Bridge:
Every day we fight a battle
On the news we are the stars
As history repeats itself
And makes us who we are
Hate is all around us
But we’ll be here to sing this song…

Chorus:
We are a miracle
We are a miracle
We were chosen with love
And embraced from above
We are a miracle

We are a miracle
We are a miracle
Through it all, we remain…
Who can explain?
We are a miracle…
