African Skies - Lyrics by Simple Minds


Lyrics

You say you're surprised
I thought i'd write today
Pieces of my life
That time can't fade away
Land lies dry - africa
And the clouds roll by - africa
I held you every night
I believed in all you'd say
Now the dust blows in my eyes
But those dreams won't fade away

The sky burns red - africa
Don't you cry - africa

Africa
When you cry it rains - africa

Still the children smile - africa
When you cry it rains - africa
When the wild dogs howl - africa
Still the clouds roll by - africa
