Mariami – I Survived A War lyrics

Many men many men many men don’t know
How to live life when you live through a thunderstorm
The Russian man came and he said there would be no more
Nothing quite like a pretty girl who survived a war

Hiding in the mountainside yea we all had to flee
Oh it’s nothing quite like a pretty girl perched in a tree
Tiny little land but we had to escape by the sea
Riding on the waves pretty hair blowing in the breeze

I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
Pretty girl at the border popping champagne

Wrote letters to my friends said yo I’ma send you something nice
Clean Knit Private label pretty girl merchandise
My grandad made some lemon tea before we left the crib
Pour it in my thermos take pretty big sippy sip

Time to start a new life free from the harsh terrain
My pretty little wings flew me far on the airplane
Now I’m a rich country girl work hard I don’t complain
Find me at the border popping pretty girl champagne

I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
Pretty girl at the border popping champagne

They showed up in their tanks and they didn’t know what peace is
They tore down my momma’s favorite European art piece
My family fell apart, the city went to war
Blank shelves in the market no food was in the store

In my country all the people always say
The river washes your worries away
The river washes your worries away
The river washes your worries away
The river washes your worries away

Beyonce’s dad knew the business
Miley’s dad was a rockstar
Taylor’s dad traded millions
Gaga’s dad helped her catch stars

My daddy came to this country
With nothing to his name
My mama was his saint
It’s been the coldest road to fame

I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
I survived a war I survived a war hey
Pretty girl at the border popping champagne
