Yeah, yeah, yeah
The sky falls and the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break

The sky falls and the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break

Sa pa s
A port of princes, a Haitian goddess
And all of my princesses, our condolences
As we fight against this, we're right by your side
While we trying to make sense of this

Heavenly father, help us see through these problems
And put those that left, accept them into your garden
So, here's my theory, the country's already starving
So we sacrifice many to shed light on all of them

Y'all please, I speak from my heart
The only way I can see this tragedy befalling
So let's get involved with it, hand to hand, arm to arm with it
To make it strong again when the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can't wait until tomorrow

Haiti, a mi mon amour, Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no, oh no

The sky falls and the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break

The sky falls and the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break

We learned from the past, New Orleans was flooded
So we know we just can't rely on the government
Under the rubble, here we going rumbling
When we gonna catch a break, a friend lost his mother and then

Colleen lost her uncle's again, buried with no caskets
They just put covers on them
A tense call, I'll be right back, still it can't end, no, not like that
No, not like this

The smallest survivors are gonna carry on your name
The broadest silence, your memory's alive with us
You inspired us to rebuild this country
You just guide us when the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can't wait until tomorrow

Haiti, a mi mon amour, Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no

It's not the angels that are on their way
It's not the bells of Santa Trinit
The people waiting, positions vacant
For hands to help, not just to pray

Haiti, a mi mon amour, Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded

Not gonna leave you
Not gonna leave you
Not gonna leave you
The sky falls, the earth quakes

Hati va s'lever
Tu vas te relever
Nous nous lverons
Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble

Not gonna leave you stranded
(The sky falls, the earth quakes)
Not gonna leave you stranded
(The sky falls, the earth quakes)
Not gonna leave you, not gonna leave you
(The sky falls, the earth quakes)

The sky falls and the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break
