African Sunrise

Original and similar lyrics
African sunrise, shine on a brand new day. African sunrise, show us a brand new way. Give us a brand new morning, show us forever beginning to stand on our own. African sunrise, smile on my African home. In this hour of quiet contemplation, the stillness of the dawning calms my mind. I face the day with heartfelt exaltation, the light is both a promise and a sign. In the darkness, we have lost the son of our sister, though the beauty of his spirit lingers still. This was a child of love, a child of laughter, who cannot understand the way I feel. Is it not the sun that gives the seasons? Is it not the sun that brings the rain? Our throats are choked with dust, but we're still singing. Our song will not be silenced by the pain. All around the village I could hear the roosters crowing. There was a time it was like music to my ears. Now all I can hear is the sound of hungry babies crying. I pray for rain to wash away their tears. African sunrise, light of a brand new day. African sunrise, light of a brand new way. With one who will be our brother, and one who will be our partner and teach us to know. African sunrise, smile on my African home. African sunrise, smile on my African home. African sunrise.

Sunrise

ERIC CARMEN "Eric Carmen"
(Eric Carmen) Sunrise, shine down a little love On the world today Make a morning so sweet That it'll have to chase my blues away Oh, the moon and stars have gone And I can see the light of dawn Like a golden smile Brightening up the brand new day Sunrise, come wrap me in the warmth Of your crimson sky I spent a long time believin' In a dream that had passed me by But the moon and stars have gone And I can see the light of dawn Like a golden smile Brightening up the morning sky From my bed I can hear the world outside I get up, throw my window open wide Take a breath of that fresh air Take a breath of that fresh air Fresh air Sunrise, shine down a little love On the world today Make a morning so sweet That it'll have to chase my blues away Oh, the moon and stars have gone And I can see the light of dawn Like a golden smile Brightening up the brand new day Brand new day

Watch The Sunrise

BIG STAR "#1 Record"
I can feel it, now it's time Open your eyes Fears be gone, it won't be long There's a light in the sky It's okay to look outside The day it will abide And watch the sunrise Sun, it shines on all of us We are one in it's hand Come inside and light my room like the heart of every man It's okay to look outside The day it will abide And watch the sunrise I can feel it, now it's time Open your eyes Fears be gone, it won't be long There's a light in the sky It's okay to look outside Your love it will abide And watch the sunrise

In My African Dream

Johnny Clegg
Something broke the place where the rain is bornb something stole the promise from the light of dawn people, people were everywhere struggling to get their share honest cruelty in the eyes of the innocent squeezing one more harvest from this tired earth they call to you, but the wind just blows away their words didn't believe in miracles, didn't believe you'd come didn't see any reason to carry on Chorus: But in my African Dream, you touched my face raised up my children and gave them grace in my African Dream you wiped away my tears and whispered the promise of a thousand years Children with eyes like souls ready to fly looking at me -- for some kind of sacred sign who will teach the young, the names of the ancient ones who will tell them from whence they come I have no answer, don't even have a prayer All I can do is close my eyes and hope that you will be thre In my African Dream you blessed the rain let me stand proud, eased the pain, you raised me up, gave me love, filled my cup. Old man sits in the shade of the thorn treee he says these thorns are all that are true life is suffering, suffering is life, be happy with the small things that come to you They will come to you, come to you. Chorus

Jeanne Darc

brought you the message of a higher destination that to fulfill you were assigned A native maid of tender age and dedication born in a dark and restless age You had no doubts but fears and asked the reasons why but still you carried on There will come the day of liberation and glory and we'll be relieved from all the torture and pain after fighting war for values sacred and holy in the history of mankind Your name will remain Guided by your fearless force they take up arms and heed your call Now the propehsy comes true the tyrant's slain in the name of god in a rage of war Out of the seeds of superstition and guided by a devious plan the tension grows as you approach the inquisition For to your fate you must resign Your deeds of valour done your followers desert you before the jury now you stand a final sacrifice on your celestial mission condemned to burn alive Jeanne Jeanne deny the voices in your mind Jeanne Jeanne there's stlll a chance to stay alive we pray for you, we know Jeanne Jeanne Say, why go this far? Light, You're gliding into light with angels at your side embracing you so tight to shelter you from pain they sentenced you in vain your spirit will arise to melt with heaven's light eternal and divine your sacrifice will shine You left a warning sign you martyr and you saint you worded no complaint as at the end you faint to rise to heavens ight you're right all the torture and pain after fighting war for val ues sacred and holy in the history of mankind Your name will remain Ligiht, You're gliding into light with angels at your side em bracing you so tight to shelter you from pain they sentenced you in vain your spirit wil arise to melt with heaven's light eternal and divine your sacrifice will shine You left a warning sign you martyr and you saint you worded no complaint as at the end you faint

Love At First Light

JOE JACKSON "Volume 4"
It's the crack of noon And i sit here watching you sleeping I only wish that i could remember your name But i know it's written on a matchbook somewhere And maybe i'll find it, and maybe i'll care Or maybe your'll fix me with one of those stares And put up a fight So when you awake i admit i'm relieved When you flash me a smile like a diamond And just for a moment i almost believe In love at first light I propose a breakfast of coffee and aspirin You laugh, suggesting a raw egg or two But oh was it ever so good being bad? Like a couple of vampires, deliciously mad Saying this is the best blood that we've ever had So we drank it all night And it we untangle the webs that we weave Then mayber there's room for more laughter 'Cos just for a moment i almost believe In love at first light Feeling cold You put a robe 'round my shoudlers Smile and pull one of your favourite books form my shelf Let's opens the curtains and let out the dark And if the sun doesn't melt us and there's still a spark And we do something human like walk in the park The spark could ignite So maybe i'm moonstruck, or maybe naive But i know there's a GOd and a Devil So maybe i'm crazy enough to believe In love at first light
