Stolen … by Andrew (AJ) Davis

A heart wrenching song written and performed by Andrew (AJ) Davis about the Australian Aboriginal “Stolen Generations” in the spirit of reconciliation.

Andrew (AJ) Davis is a Ngarrindjeri, Barngala & Kokatha man who is a member of the Stolen Generations.

This song represents the difficult struggles faced by many members of the Aboriginal and Islander Stolen Generations as they continue to navigate the trauma and perpetual grief imposed upon them by assimilation policies of the colonisers and a life time of lateral violence and racism.

I Believe I Can Fly … by R. Kelly

I Believe I Can Fly

I used to think that I could not go on

And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meanin’ of true love
I’m leanin’ on the everlasting arms

If I can see it then I can do it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breakin’ down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me oh

If I can see it then I can be it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me runnin’ through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

Hey ‘cuz I believe in me
If I can see it then I can do it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me runnin’ through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

Hey if I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly
I can fly, hey
If I just spread my wings
I can fly
Fly eye, eye
