AS I CAN BREATHE

Kalɛ̃tɔ wodzim lo manye lo tsɔyiɖaaa
(Warrior I was born, warrior I remain, eternally).

The road stands up now before me
If I gave up what would I be supposed to be
So many questions spin in my mind
Should I quit after all I leave behind
I wonder who I am or ought to be
But I know a loser I got no to be
I'd like this to be just a dream but it's not
All I gotta do is to keep my goal in mind
I clench my fists and look forward
I'm gonna get wounds but I look forward
In the end without shame gotta see my reflection
And smile everytime I see my scars

As I can breathe, I keep faith
In every step that I make
As I can breathe I cannot let
What I live for be an ideal.

This path I'm on
This fight I'm on
Every sunrise put me in doubt
And I feel that days are all the same
Cuz I can't still figure my way out

Through this opaque haze I'm walking towards my destiny
Gotta find my way and then fight till end
Now I know I must use my senses to become the master
of my destiny
So I'm not about to give up
My duty to show my hit
When I see the mountain I got faith that one day
I'll reach this bright summit where
I'll be seen as a hero

As I can breathe, I keep faith
In every step that I make
As I breathe I cannot let
what I live for be an ideal.

As I can breathe, I keep faith
In every step that I make
As I breathe I cannot let
What I live for be an ideal

Kalɛ̃tɔ wodzim lo manye lo tsɔyiɖaaa
(Warrior I was born, warrior I remain, eternally)

As I can breathe, I keep faith
In every step that I make
As I breathe I cannot let
What I live for be an ideal

As I can breathe, I keep faith
In every step that I make
As I breathe I cannot let
What I live for be an ideal

about

ARKA'N

The band’s originality stems from their music, “Asrafo-core” which is a fusion of hard rock/metal and African mystic and warrior music.
Since 2010, ARKA’N has paved its way on the Togolese music scene as an impressive hard rock metal band which creates, records and performs its own songs deriving their particular sound from the intense African character of their compositions.
