African Dream – Soweto Gospel Choir

on
[Verse 1]
Sometimes alone in the evening
I look outside my window
Shadows in the night
I hear the sound of distant crying
The darkness multiplying
The weary hearts denied
All I feel is my heart beat
Beating like a drum
Beating with confusion
All I hear are the voices
Telling me to go
But I can never run
[Chorus]
‘Cos in my African Dream
There’s a new tomorrow
My African dream
Is a dream that we can follow
[Verse 2]
Now when the night begins to fall
I listen for your call
I listen for your heartbeat
Alone, my dream is just a dream
Another false illusion
A shadow in the night
All I want is for our heartbeat
To beat just as one
To silence that confusion
And the pain and the illusion
Will disappear again
And we will never run
Repeat Chorus
[Verse 3]
And though it seems
(helele helele mama)
My hope is an illusion
(helele helele mama)
My African dream
(helele helele mama)
Brings an end to the confusion
[Verse 4]
Bawetu we Afrika (Bawetu we Afrika)

Ukuphela kwenkinga zonke
