My African dream

by Pete October. 18, 2007 9456 views

Sometimes alone in the evening
I look outside my window
At the shadows in the night

I hear the sound of distant crying
The darkness multiplying and weary hearts denied
All I feel is my heart beating
Beating like a drum
Beating with confusion
All I hear are the voices telling me to go
But I can never run

Cause in my African dream, there is a new tomorrow
My African dream is a dream that we can follow

When the night begins to fall
I listen for your call,
I listen for your heartbeat
I know my dream is just a dream
And not a false illusion
A shadow in the night

All I want is for our hearts to be beating
Just as one
To silence the confusion
Then the pain and illusion will disappear again
And we will rise

And can't you see
My whole sad illusion
My African dream
Is an end to the confusion
