Youssou N'Dour & Neneh Cherry – 7 Seconds lyrics
Don't see me from a distance
Don't look at my smile
And think that I don't know
What's under and behind me
I don't want you to look at me
And think
What's in you is in me
What's in me is to help them

I assume the reasons that push us to
Change everything
I would like us to forget about
Their color
So they can be optimistic
Too many views on rave that make them
Desperate
Let's leave the doors wide open
So they can talk about their pain
And joy
Then we can give them information
That will bring us all together

It's not a second
7 Seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

Nothing can move us, we should
Be moving
From the ones who practice wicked
Charms
For the son and the stone
Bad to the bone
Man is not evil, even when it's born

And when a child is born into this world
It has no concept
The tone the skin is living in

It's not a second
7 Seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

There's a million voices
There's a million voices
To tell you what she should be thinking
So you better sober up for just a second
