African Sunset - Lyrics by Tommy Page


By t. page/ l. russell brown

Vocal rap

Every time i see the sun go down
It turns my aching heart around
And when i see the setting sun
I think about the endless fun
With sunset, sunset
Every time the sun goes down
Reminds me of the love i've found
At sunset, sunset


Sunset, african sunset
I hear you calling me, so far away
Sunset, my african sunset
I feel you reaching out
Across the water
