Africa

You say you're surprised
I thought I'd write today
Pieces of my life
That time can't fade away

Land lies dry, Africa
Clouds roll by, Africa

I held you every night
I believed in all you'd say
Now the dust blows in my eyes
Dreams don't fade away

The sky burns red, Africa
Don't you cry, Africa

Africa, when you cry it rains, Africa

Still the children smile, Africa
When you cry it rains, Africa
When the wild dogs howl, Africa
Still the clouds roll by, Africa
