Please Excuse Me If I Rejoice


"This Love" Chelsea-Lyne W/ Nabil & Karim

February 17, 2010 - #1 song on TW billboard:  Chelsea-Lyne Heins with Nabil Moghaddam and Karim Rushdy dedicating their song "This Love" to The Baha'is in Iran, especially the 7 Baha'is on trial, and their families. Would you sing along with them... (Lyrics and Music Video below)

Nabil:
They can take my life away
But this love will never change
They can take my rights away
But I'll grow stronger everyday

Chelsea-Lyne:
Its my right to live a life that's free
My right to simply be a citizen
Who believes in world equality
We shouldn't have to hide
Or feel the need to cower
Our beliefs shape who we are
They give us inner power
With our heads held high we shall walk on
With utmost love in our hearts we remain strong
They ask the question, we refuse.
Because it is our right to choose

They can take my life away
But this love will never change
They can take my rights away
But i'll grow stronger everyday

Karim:
In the silence of this courtroom
I closed my eyes and saw the future
Around the time that we heard from the prosecutor
And your honour I think you've already made your choice
So to the jury, please excuse me if I rejoice
Cause it was years ago, back when I decided to save
A place inside my heart where Baha'u'llah's resided
And my family all around the world will watch and pray
So I am not alone. Will I surrender?
Not today.

They can take my life away
But this love will never change
They can take my rights away
But i'll grow stronger everyday

Its my right to an education,
My right to the living I'm making
And yet they keep taking away from me
My material possessions have be ruined and put to pieces
My spirit remains a whole, my attachment thus decreases
Still in this day though times have changed,
They haven't changed enough
The friends must hide, obey,
Pray to avoid themselves handcuffed
Battle's changed but sacrifice remains the same
This is my devotion that ignites my inner flame

They can take my life away
But this love will never change
They can take my rights away
But i'll grow stronger everyday

Lyrics (Written By N. Moghaddam, C.Heins, K.Rushdy)
