Hum
Standing on the earth seagull flying
Standing on the earth the sky is bleedino
Standing on the earth sun is leavino
Leaving us behind

Once there was an african love song
Helped us on our way
Made our hearts feel as strong
As the african day

Chorus:
Bye bye december african rain -
The long gone summer has passed and I hear the owls
Calling my name -
The firelight has danced itís last across your face my friend
And though I love you I somehow know this is going to be the end

Now the sun has disappeared and all that remains
An old tin mug and a photograph
So wipe away those tears and remember the good times

Hum oh
Standing on the earth moon is rising
Somewhere in the world - spirit flying
Standing on the earth - leaves are falling
Taking us away

I never knew whom I could love more - you or the land
Till I stood lost upon that shore - naked and alone

Chorus:
Ďcause all the birds have flown away, the night is closing in
Itís so hard to say goodbye to eyes as old as yours my friend

Where did the time go?
Can you tell me where did the time go?

Time life show
Life time go
Time life show
Where did the time go?
Can you tell me where did my life go?
Where did your life go?
Can you tell me where did your life go?
