I heard a voice of hope Sing a song of love But like the story that my life’s made of A wind came along and blew the voice away Now there’s pain where there once was love Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye I saw a tree of hope Bear the fruit of love But like the story that my life’s made of A cold came along, the fruit died away And now there’s pain where there once was love Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye So if music is the food of love Then I need some And if your song can lift me up higher Then sing me one And if rhythm is the healing of the nation Then play that drum Cause we got to find a way Yeah ye Find a way I’m trying to find a way Gotta find a way I want to find a way Try to find a way We’ve got to find a way I’m telling you Find a way I saw a sky of hope
Filled with the light of love But like the story that my life’s made of Clouds came along, the light went away Now there’s pain where there once was love Ay ye... I held her of hope and was kissed with love But like the story that my life’s made of My hope is gone, she’s gone away Now there’s pain where there once was love Ay ye... Ay ye... Ay ye... Ay ye... So if music is the food of love Then I need some And if your song can lift me up higher Then sing me one And if rhythm is the healing of the nation Then play that drum Cause we’ve got to find a way my friends Find a way We got to find a way my friends Find a way We got to find the way my friends Find a way We gonna find the way, come on Find a way We got to find a way my friends Find a way We got to find a way Find a way

Duck and hide You don’t want to admit it You just do not seem to get it Argue and debate As we move closer to our fate What good is all that money If you ain’t got a world to live in? What good is all that power If your children are always fearing? (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking bout Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Brutal strong arm politics Like barbarians breaking bones with sticks Delivering your imperial agenda Yet what is sent Shall be sent back to the sender Didn’t your momma tell you ‘bout the golden rule? Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you You’ve been fighting fire with fire Now some water is required Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking ‘bout Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) What you doing with it?

Uh uh) If breath is that of life And word’s that of breath Why do you speak those things That starve your soul to death? You’re not a very good pretender Laying blame when you’re the offender Laughing at your sister cause she stepped in shit When there you are, you’re swimming in a pool of it You’ve been fighting fire with fire Now some water is required Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking ‘bout Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no) What you doing with it?

And so you got yourself a hurricane Running through your brain Driving you crazy off on a campaign Like a red-eyed, wild stallion Hell-bent to win A battle with no winners A war with no end On the banks of forgiveness You clutch to your burden The waters are begging But you won’t throw it in You are a dove, flying like a crow You know, you know But you won’t let it go Up into a sky of hate 
Further you go Leaving a solution Way down below You know, you know But you won’t let it go You are a dove, flying like a crow So now you’re using a shield of hope To dig a grave You called the past your master So today you are its slave Your pride’s cry of victory Has signaled your defeat You traded in your throne For a broken seat On the banks of forgiveness The waters beg you to throw it in But your tears burn your wounds And you just won’t listen You are a dove, flying like a crow You know, you know But you won’t let it go Up into a sky of hate 
Further you go Leaving a solution Way down below You know, you know But you won’t let it go You are a dove, flying like a crow Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won’t let it go Up into a sky of hate
 Further you go Leaving a solution Way down below You know, you know But you won’t let it go You are a dove Flying like a crow Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know?

I’m a dreamer of dreams Though it sometimes seems Like I’m a fool for doing so But if you’re a dreamer of dreams Then you surely know Some dreams won’t let you go Yes, I’m a dreamer of dreams Though it sometimes seems like I’m a fool for doing so But if you’re a dreamer of dreams Then you surely know Some dreams won’t let you go 
I grow tired of sitting under this tree that I can’t climb And whose fruits refuse to fall I’m tired of begging for the crumbs from this table Don’t know how long will be able to carry on this way Feeling so close, yet so far away So close yet so far away So close yet so far away So close yet so far away So far away So far away I’m a dreamer of dreams Though it sometimes seems Like I’m a fool for doing so But if you’re a dreamer of dreams Then you surely know Some dreams won’t let you go 
I grow tired of this storm Whose winds threaten And whose rains refuse to fall I’m tired of those Who promise me everything Then give me nothing at all I’m tired of begging for the crumbs from this table I don’t know how long will be able to carry on this way Feeling so close, yet so far away So close yet so far away So close yet so far away So close yet so far away So far away So far away Time, have you foresaken me? Or are you just taking me on a very long ride Your ways seem so unfair Every time I ask, “when will I get there?” You always say that I’m So close yet far away So close yet far away So close yet far away So close, so far away So close, so far away So close, so far away So far away

I saw you standing in the storm The rain beat upon you The winds howled her name I reach for you, but I reach in vain You’ve long been drown in a sea of shame I reach for you, but I reach in vain You’ve long been blinded by your own self blame Some say it’s better to end it Than to keep carrying on But I say hold on, hold on, hold on What words can I say?
What song can I play? To make you understand just how beautiful you really are yeah The night is darkest before the dawn Hold on, hold on, hold on I’ll be your fire, fire, fire to warm you up Your water, water, water to cool you down Your fire, fire, fire to warm you up You water, water, water I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you I saw you standing in the storm The rain beat upon you The winds howled your name I reach for you but I reach in vain You’ve long been drowned in a sea of shame I reach for you but I reach in vain You’ve long been blinded by your own self shame Some say it’s better to end it than to keep carrying on But I say hold on, hold on, hold on The night is darkest before the dawn Hold on, hold on, hold on I’ll be your fire, fire, fire to warm you up Your water, water, water to cool you down Your fire, fire, fire to warm you up You water, water, water I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you The night is darkest before the dawn Hold on, hold on, hold on Just hold on, hold on, hold on

Unotamba sei (You dance like) Usina mangwana mukomana (You have no tomorrow, brother) Unotamba sei (You dance like) Usina mangwana (You have not tomorrow) Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely) Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely) Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely) Things can’t remain the same Why keep on with the old rules when today’s a new game I’m tired of all this fighting and I’m trying to find Some people who know how to be kind So whether you chant a psalm or read the Koran Here I am, I’m reaching out my hand So come on now Don’t let me down Don’t let me down Don’t walk away I’ve got something I wanna say I’ve been waiting for you Waiting for you Don’t let me down Don’t let me down. So now who are the children of a lesser God But those who believe God is lesser. It’s a choice did you come to curse Or are you going to be a blesser So whether you offer the ancestors libations Or find some peace in meditation Here I am just another man born from a woman And I’m reaching out my hand So come on now (Repeat Chorus)

In a land called “Down Under” The people got together They were 40,000 strong And they required of me a song Just before the new millennium They came to tell me that the time had come Up on the stage I told everybody, “I’m gonna be a daddy” We sang 2000 in Then climbed a mountain To pray give way To this a brand new day And as the first light cut the dawn I heard a voice from clear and strong “The mountains you have climbed, Your children will fly from” The mountains we have climbed Our children will fly from See, the mountains we have climbed Our children will fly from Rushed to the hospital Condition critical Some thought that you would not make it through They didn’t know what I knew This day a ray of hope would be born 2:22’s the time they gave me to you You smiled, my child So bright and I knew Those words I heard, oh yeah, they spoke of you “The mountains we have climbed Our children will fly from” See, the mountains we have climbed Our children will fly from The mountains we have climbed Our children will fly from Waniso, oh Waniso I keep on climbing up (Waniso, oh waniso...) Keep on climbing higher I won’t stop til I reach Til I reach the top Keep on getting up
Keep on climbing higher Keep on going up I keep on climbing for you Do every thing I can do I’ll keep loving for you

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be?” Brilliant and beautiful But actually, who are we not to be? Cause you are a child of god And your playing small doesn’t served the world, no no These are the words of Mandela Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela... There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking So that others won’t feel insecure around you We were born to make manifest A glory of god that is in us It’s not just the sum of us It’s in everyone Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela....

I said I wanna get to the mountain tops So I started getting high But I wasn’t going up I was trying to get to the city of angels Riding on the back of a demon My poison came sweet In a silver cup I was getting high But I wasn’t going up It’s hard to get to where the angels sing If you’re using lead to make wings 
See, I’ve been going east to get west And the situation seems to suggest That those things in my life That were going right They were just there to say I’m going the wrong way I’ve been going Been going the wrong way Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah Going the wrong way I’ve been going I’ve been going the wrong way Yeah, yeah ,yeah yeah-eah Been going the wrong way I’ve seen medicine kill Poison heal Poor men giving While rich men steal Holy men sinning in the dead of the night Killers and sinners coming in to the light I’ve seen a flower that killed A sword that gave life A song from a child that cut like a knife So now let the truth be told All that glitters ain’t gold And all that’s gold ain’t good And all that isn’t good isn’t evil Bad is sometimes good That’s been understood The wrong way I’ve been going Been going the wrong way Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah Going the wrong way I’ve been going Been going the wrong way Yeah yeah yeah, oh Going the wrong way See, I’ve been going Been going the wrong way Yeah..oh... This is a cave, not a tunnel I’m in The only light is back where I came in It’s not too late to turn around If I get my feet back on the ground I’ve got a long way to go But I’m gonna get there, yes I know Cause I’m singing, let the truth be told All that glitters ain’t gold And all that’s gold ain’t good And all that isn’t good isn’t evil Bad is sometimes good That’s been understood The wrong way I’ve been going Been going the wrong way Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah Going the wrong way So long I’ve been going, going the wrong way Yeah yeah yeah-eah I’ve been going the wrong way yeah yeah...

When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear Beauty becomes her as if she was the reason for the word Yet unto herself her beauty’s a song she’s never heard All alone she cries in a prison of doubt She’s begging for a key But only she can let herself out Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee Lisa Renee Her dance can put fire to shame One of her tears is a million nights of rain Her laugh makes the sun to shine brighter And her cry the moon to wain And yet still of thyself is a song from a foreign tongue From a land where songs are never ever ever sung Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee Lisa Renee When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the clouds gather to hear When she tells the wind her story She knows not that the rivers rush down to be near When she tells the wind her story She sees not that the trees they bend down to be near When she tells the wind her story She knows not that they mountains bow down to be near
