Hello Vietnam- Phạm Quỳnh Anh

Hello Vietnam- Phạm Quỳnh Anh
Tell me all about this name, that is difficult to say, it was given me the day I was born ...


Want to know about the stories of the empire of old
My eyes say more of me than what you dare to say

All I know of you is all the sights of war
A film by Coppola, the helicopter's roar

One day I'll touch your soil
One day I'll finally know my soul
One day I'll come to you
To say hello Vietnam

Tell me all about my colour, my hair and my little feet
That have carried me every mile of the way

Want to see your house, your streets. Show me all I do not know
Wooden sampans, floating markets, light of gold

All I know of you is the sights of war
A film by Coppola, the helicopter's roar

One day I'll touch your soil
One day I'll finally know my soul
One day I'll come to you
To say hello Vietnam

And Buddha’s made of stone watch over me
My dreams they lead me through the fields of rice
In prayer, in the light…I see my kin
I touch my tree, my roots, my begin

 

One day I'll touch your soil
One day I'll finally know my soul
One day I'll come to you
To say hello Vietnam

One day I’ll walk your soil
One day I’ll finally know my soul
One day I’ll come to you
To say hello Vietnam
