Johnny Clegg Savuka lyrics - Shadow Man

Talk To The People

Original and similar lyrics
There's a brawl in a lonely whites only bar A lekker groove in a classy shebeen Someone betrayed in a government car A silent movement on the stock market screen A watchman playing on a Zulu guitar A white soldier's blues in camouflage green A migrant worker who's come too far A sailor aground in a submarine Chorus Phendula wendoda (Answer, Mister) Lendlela sizofika kanjani (This way, how will we arrive?) Talk to the people Walk through the country Listen to the children Do you know the dreams they dream at night Only you, only you can see me Only you, only you can free me Only you breathe life into the land Touch me with your healing hand There's a township mongrel on the scrounge A tribal feud in a municipal 'pound A squatter with an ox but no land to plough A shipment of A.K.s on the underground A throw of the dice on a Soweto train A waiting knife if you should win the game A human rights lawyer with a torture claim A union activitist never ever seen again Chorus Phendula wemadoda (Give the answer...) Talk to me God hear the children God save the country God hear the people God bless the dreams they dream at night Chorus

Follow Your Dreams

[Intro, spoken] The world fears a person with a dream. Because to have a dream gives you the ambition to wanna fulfill wanna that dream And if you live your life fulling that dream, you're gonna glow man. Because there’s a magnificence in the moment that comes with fulfilling you dream that you can't achieve being a part of someone else's [Hook] Follow your dreams no matter what people may say. They gonna talk they gonna front they gonna hate at the end of the day its between you and God cause you know what it takes Follow my dreams and get right back down, two steps forward three steps back round. They keep pulling, I'm pushing, I'm shoving, they showing no love - oh God I need you right now [Verse 1] You got famous your love came back up, that's insane The same as you must be to be in this game In this game you suffer, hit strangers Like Usain you bolt towards your dream But haters speak disdain Know my name and your name But one thing's for sure man Success is a sickness and there ain't no cure, man Cure all is work hard and don't take no tours off And even on off days you came back like you're off The payoff is tenfold in dollars and euros Pitfalls of vanity, pride, and your ego Just let go and live up to your full potential What they say is hearsay, it's inconsequential But naysayers say no, but they are so simple That they judge appearances and can't touch the mental They are sheep, they follow shepherds of men Or Malcolm, or Martin; I follow my plan [Hook] [Verse 2] Do it for family, but they don't believe That dreams that you have can even be achieved Get ready young sailor, here's rough on the seas Can't let no doubt or self-pity drown me It's design when you sign and the vultures appear And if you should succeed, it gets worse by the year But the worse curse is failure, it kills by the day Watch your dreams and ambitions as they fade away See, my curse is I'll verse in these verses I verse Will still be overlooked like a body in hearse But this Lazarus rap and this is my rebirth And no paper, just my dream on verse The boot lady told me she dreamed I was cursed Told her, if you can't tell I returned to Earth Returned to the dirt, returned to the essence Cause no weapon formed that gives me a succession [Hook] [Outro, spoken] I hope you've learned about the business of chasing your dreams out there. I hope you're chasing your dreams 'till you're exhausted, 'till your feet hurt, 'till your bones ache, and 'till you get it, you're hoping that you won't let it go. I want this to be more than good music to you, I hope it's inspiration for you. Chad Butler told me a few years back, "fight for your dream, Michael, like a drowning man fightin' for air." [Hook x2]

KANYE WEST "Graduation"
[Bridge - Mos Def] I'm not sure anymore-more Who is knocking at my door-door All the faces that I know Ja make them so sunny and true [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Verse - Kanye West] Right now I can see it so vivid Like it was just yesterday like I could relive it Me and my grandparents on a field trid-ip And I'm the little kid tryna touch the exhibits But it'll fade before I get to get a hold of that Man I wish I could stop time like a photograph Every joke that they told I'd know to laugh Man, man I wouldn't let a moment pass What do it mean when you dream that you fallin' What do it mean when you dream that you ballin' What do it mean when you never dream at all then And you don't really know cause you can't recall them It's sorta fly you get a chance to say hi to People you never got a chance to say bye to Maybe you could pull em up outta your dreams Into real life, if you try to So close, but so far And so far, no cigar We can't dwell on the past all we got is today So I'mma live like there's no tomorrow No goodbye [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Verse - Al Be] Uhh, to you If I part my heart will live through you Dream beautiful and unusual Wake up like everyday new to you Stay true to you, a hood musical My art will live through you Dream beautiful and unusual Wake up like everyday new to you Stay true to you, a hood musical [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Bridge - Mos Def x3] I'm not sure anymore-more Who is knocking at my door-door All the faces that I know Ja make them so sunny and true

Rock Bottom

EMINEM "Slim Shady EP"
Ah yeah, yo! This song is dedicated to all the happy people All the happy people who have real nice lives And who have no idea whats it like to be broke as fuck Verse One: I feel like I'm walking a tight rope, without a circus net I'm popping perkasets, I'm a nervous wreck I deserve respect; but I work a sweat for this worthless check Bout to burst this tech, at somebody to reverse this debt Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged Full of venom and rage Especially when I'm engaged And my daughter's down to her last diaper That's got my ass hyper I pray that god answers, maybe I'll ask nicer Watching ballers while they flossing in their pathfinders These overnight stars becoming autograph signers We'll all gone blow up and leave the past behind us Along with the small fry's and average half pinters While playa haters turn bitch like they have vaginas Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us Money will brainwash you and leave your ass mindless Snakes slither in the grass spineless Chorus: repeat 2X That's Rock Bottom When this life makes you mad enough to kill That's Rock Bottom When you want something bad enough you'll steal That's Rock Bottom When you feel you have had it up to here Cause you mad enough to scream but you sad enough to tear Verse Two: My life is full of empty promises And broken dreams I'm hoping things will look up But there ain't no job openings I feel discouraged hungry and malnourished Living in this house with no furnace, unfurnished And I'm sick of working dead end jobs with lame pay And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day But fuck it, if you know the rules to the game play Cause when we die we know were all going the same way It's cool to be player, but it sucks to be the fan When all you need is bucks to be the man Plus a luxury sedan Too comfortable and roomy in a six They threw me in the mix With all these gloomy lunatics Walk around depressed And smoke a pound of ses a day And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was just today My daughter wants to throw the ball but I'm too stressed to play Live half my life and throw the rest away Chorus There's people that love me and people that hate me But it's the evil that made me this backstabbing, deceitful, and shady I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame That Means I'll end up burning in hell scorching in flames That means I'm stealing your checkbook and forging your name Lifetime bliss for eternal torture and pain Right now I feel like just hit the rock bottom I got problems now everybody on my blocks got 'em I'm screaming like those two cops when 2pac shot 'em Holding two glocks, I hope your doors got new locks on 'em My daughter's feet ain't got no shoes or sock's on 'em And them rings you wearing look like they got a few rocks on 'em And while you flaunting them I could be taking them to shops to pawn them I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch you want 'em? Cause I never went gold of one song I'm running up on someone's lawns with guns drawn Chorus

I Of Forever

Elysian Fields
Born in the woods, raised among the jackals Epic battles were to come; forlorned He stood As the stars were falling one by one He raised His hands and cursed Eternal frost in soul to blame His children Damned to be, to feel the unlight, the creatures of the Night My sadness I defy, Lord of darkened skies whispering, as I die The blackness I purify, God of my despise dreaming, as I cry The dark erases the past of sorrow The fear freezes by the cold I of forever The stars are holding a world of their own I sucked the light too deep inside Can't find the statue of my lost soul And the ancient form has merely died For the thousand mirrors that I broke The blood (that) was spilled wasn't mine This is the darkest sun I ever saw No one can pass my bloodline Land of the unholy fire Land of the everlasting fears Slay thy children for they believed And your will...shall be the one.
