Johnny Clegg – Circle Of Light lyrics

In the history of all dreams
None has shone as brightly as you
Wrestling with your book of colours
Page by page I look for clues
>from the gloom of my dark window
I know one day I will make that flight, I will.....
Step into your circle of light
Ye le le mama
Between jesus and my ancestors
Between my tribe and my "urban cool"
Lies a bridge never crossed by any other
I cross that distance with my sacred shoes
Who needs the stars if you can see the moon
Because in my dreams you keep shining through, I will....
Step into your circle of light
Ye le le mama
I'll cross your ocean tonight
Ye le le mama
Into your circle of light
I will leave the house of my father
I do not dream there any more
Dance across the silence of the future
And make for tomorrow's shifting shores
I've got the wind to my back
I've got the moon in my eye
I've got the earth beneath my feet and I'm steady
I've got to meet the dealer and trade a lost soul,
I feel strong and I'm ready....
