Johnny Clegg – African Litany lyrics

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 your 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!
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
