AFRICAN LITANY

 

Trapped in a moment of history

You changed the world and the day was yours

Laughing sun flashing from your smile

Your beach-bronzed body braced against the wind

But you forgot the wheel keeps turning

And one day the dawn left you behind

And though I tried to love you

I really have to go

‘Cause the world is leaving you behind

The world is leaving you behind

The world is leaving you behind

 

CHORUS

I’ll sing an African litany for you

An African litany for me

An African litany for you

And I hope we see these times through

 

I think this dream is going to end

The past is no longer our friend

Memory upon memory

Binds you into a timeless web

‘Cause you forgot the wheel keeps turning

And one day the dawn left you behind

And now you’re trapped there forever

Till the embers of that glowing day have died

Till the embers of that glowing day have died

Till the embers of that glowing day have died

 

CHORUS

 

African! Litany!

African! Litany!

 

CHORUS

I’ll sing an African litany for you

Fare thee well and fond adieu

An African litany for me

I hope we see these times through
