Johnny Clegg Savuka lyrics - Heat, Dust and Dreams

Foreign Nights (Working Dog In Babylon)

Original and similar lyrics
(for Jenny) I'm a working alien in a land of heat and stone a casulaty of an economic war that took me away from home. It's the politics of money and power It's the hope that we can build a future in world getting smaller everywhere Bridge: I can hear a siren in the workyard another shift and I'll be closer to you I'm a working dog in Babylon and only your love can get me through Chorus: Foreign nights -- took you away from me Foreign nights -- are not where I belong Foreign nights -- filled with dust and dreams Foreign nights -- trapped me in Babylon AS long as I keep moving I know I will be all right cause if I stop to think I'll drown and sink in the sea of foreign nights I've got to keep my hands busy got to keep pushing through got to learn to deal with this time away from you Bridge: I can hear a siren in the workyard another shift and I'll be closer to you I'm a working dog in Babylon and only your love can get me through Chorus.... Quiet moments in the dark are hardest to face the sun goes down but not the pain I want to be with you all the time I want to be with you, to be with you all my life I'm going to have to get through... foreign nights.

Why Now

WYNONNA JUDD "The Other Side"
Words and Music by Gary Burr and Mike Reid Love that's worth fighting for That's what this is And how, how could I want more Than the warmth of your kiss No matter how many mile and dreams Come between us now In each step I take, with each prayer I make This love will last somehow (chorus) Let the mountains rise I will climb them all When my body's weak, I will not fall Baby come what may I'll find a way to get through There's nothing that I won't do To be loved by you There will be lonely nights When you'll whisper my name Know on those lonely nights I'll be doing the same Should every star in the sky go out Just keep your faith alive We were meant to be, this is destiny It cannot be denied Even when we're worlds apart Just keep this in your heart

The Badness

J. COLE "The Warm Up"
Yea, keep following me keep calling me Yea, yea, yea Ay, believe in God like the sun up in the sky! Science can tell us how how but they can't tell us why I seen a baby cry then seconds later she laughed, the beauty of life- The pain never lasts The rain always past, the sun don't always shine When it's gone I'm lonely, but when it's there I'm fine I hate the winter time because the nights come quicker The light make them whites think I'm a nice young nigga But at night they think twice and walk a little faster It's funny, 100 yrs ago I would of called Id a call this nigga masta How the tables turn but still the fire burning huh I feel the heat the world is a dryer turning, turning I'm looking for some higher learning, learning Girl you what I desire, yearning, yearning You cay I'm easily distracted I think the problem is I'm easily attracted by the darkside The temptation got me questioning where my heart lies I'm trynna separate myself like apartheid But ay the liquor keep swallowing I swear I walk with God but the devil keep following I say the devil keep following, following I say the devil keep following, following I say the devil keep following, following Omen Feel like I'm riding on a chartered plane of broken hearted pain Turbulence is constant my pilot has gone insane If I can find a parachute to parasail, maybe these parasites of paranoia won't prevail Character dope as hell, but where is my parallel sweetheart? Deep thoughts lost in my brain so I sleep hard- Nights with no progress Man I'm thinking like I'll probably find a Locness in the projects before I find this- Object of my love, this object of my heart Couture strings have strum in search of my counterpart Bound to start drinking or smoking, sinking this ocean Leaping through the badness hoping I'm reaching for closeness Feel like the devil keep following me Feel like the devil keep following me

Camera Thief

ATMOSPHERE "SouthSiders"
Camera thief Take pictures Run like the parallel stitches Attach my feet to the path I beat Teach myself to keep the answers brief Gnash my teeth like the last to feast Imagine me on that abandoned beach Sand and sea as if the jazz was free I’m Ice cream mixed with gasoline Direct attention to the craftsmanship Neglect to mention that the past will stick Like initials carved in the concrete Like the tattoo that hides on your mommy I still kick it with angels The difference is that instead of the bar, I’m at my kitchen table The starlight shines through the glass But you feel safe underneath that mask Ferris Wheel, give rides These scars healed in time to get high Lock the doors and hide the keys Lets go describe how to climb a tree Don’t sign the lease just cop a corner For you to curl up and try to sleep Those cheap police won't find my wings I keep my dreams inside my dreams And If I had a time machine I’d probably use it like a vacuum and try to clean It kind a seems, quite more than a handful of these regrets have been circumstantial Now give me all the cash out the drawer Touch that mustache down on the floor And I’ll be in court holding a pitchfork Before I let the contest outlast the sport Pocket watch, impatient Find a mate then make the migration Break the rules, but first break the rulers And keep it moving like a rumor I don’t need to defend my defensiveness I keep to myself, my family, and friendships I’ve got enough people I could disappoint If you disagree I think you missed the point Now go ahead and grab a chair Let me tell you about the last few years Pulled out a sack full of Samson’s hair And put it on the dash like a dancin’ bear I wrote you a horoscope It won't fit on this post-it note But if I had to sum it up into a shorter quote It goes fuck it, you might as well row that boat

Sometimes

KAREN CLARK SHEARD "The Heavens Are Telling"
[Chorus:] Sometimes heaven seems so far away, With all that you're going through everyday, From being tempted to resented and you need direction. Sometimes heaven seems so far away, With all of the money spent that you make, But the righteous won't be forsaken, You just keep on pressin'. [Verse 1:] I might get personal so protect your toes, 'cause I feel I need to let my heel down (heel down). For we do all that we can to (treat our neighbor right), But sometimes we wanna (scream). We try to turn the other cheek and stay on our knees And keep our tempers under control (control), But you know (that every now and then) You wanna tell somebody what they mean. [Chorus] [Verse 2:] Working that job so hard from dusk to dawn To keep a decent roof over head (your head), But your debt is ever growing, (even working overtime), But sometimes you wanna (scream). But God knows the pain is there And how much we can bear, We didn't come this far to be left alone, (that's why we gotta) be strong (for the prayers of the righteous) will availeth many things. [Chorus] [Bridge:] For the trials that we see Are here to (make us stronger). Grab onto His hand (and live in fear no longer). Like a tree planted by the rivers of water, (we shall not be moved); (stand strong in your service) And your eyes will be dried (in the morning). [Chorus]
