1974 the island was invaded
Civilians were shot
And families separated
No one came to help them
America turned a blind eye
People were mass murdered
Greeks stood and fought
Because we refuse to die

Never give up soon our time will come
We’ll restore our land to the days of Byzantium
The glory of Cyprus is on its way
This is our home and we are here to stay

There are no human rights
They’re in a prison in their own country
The enemy laughs at us
They destroy our noble cities
They are only jealous
Of something that they never could be
We are Greek and we are proud
And Cyprus belongs to me
(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat verse 2 and 1)
(Repeat Chorus)
