Paroles / Lyrics

Love in the time of Gaza





I was born inside the rain on a day of wonder
Deep inside my brain memories of thunder
I grew up a refugee, my life not fixed or free
I know the worldís not to blame
íCos everybody carries my name

Oooh! These are my Fathersí people - (Hawu Ngitshele! Ngitshele! - tell me! tell me!)
Oooh! This is where the Human tree once grew
Oooh! We are the children of a new world
Oooh! We have a new dream pushing through

The sky is black with gunships, but Iím dreaming of a girl
In her eyes love and friendship, but will she understand my world?
Now Iím like a windswept sea, fear and hope washing over me
Will she think my world is cruel, when I share my point of view?


Oh - Itís a strange world - hawu ngitshele! Ngitshele ! yeah!
Oh... Itís a caged bird - yeah!
Oh... gimme what you say... yeah!
Oh... gimme a brand new day... yeah!
