I think this has got to be, without a doubt, the most beautifully written, inspirational song I have heard in a very long time.

It incorporates an almost sensual feeling background of music, the always beautiful voices that come out of Africa, and the lyrics are just phenomenal.

This song never fails to send shivers through me, and life my soul to glorious heights....

AND just to cap it off, the lead singer is HOT, and they're doing something good for humanity...because a percentage of the royalties this song makes go to helping the people in Darfur.

Here's the lyrics:

See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise x2

There's disaster in your past
Boundaries in your path
What do you desire will lift you higher?
You don't have to be extraordinary, just forgiving.
And those who never heard your cries,
You shall rise x2
And look toward the skies.
Where others fail, you prevail in time.
You shall rise.

Awu indoda yam
hayi lapho olelekhona
Hayi indoda yam
Ubaba wabantwabami

Mina lezingane zami sisohlala sikhumbula
mina lezingane zami sisoshlala sikhumbula

(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) x4
You shall rise x3

Sooner or later we must try... Living
(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) x4

See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise x4

(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) 4x

Sooner or later we must try... Living


I think there's a video link here where I got the lyrics from...I'm on dial up so I don't know how good it is...also, if anyone knows the translation? to the middle lyrics....I couldn't find one.

Living Darfur

Blessings,

Luck.

ooooh.!!! That's great Ron :) Thanks so much for adding that in there...I tell you, Dial-up can really be the pits sometimes, but, it's better than no internet...

LOL! I'm glad you liked the song too :P

Blessings,

Luck.

I remember well the days of dial-up Luck! In fact, I built most of this website while attached to a 56k phone modem!

Also wanted to let you know I broke down and paid the $2 to download this video from iTunes (do a search for Mattafix) - just to see the faces and brilliant colors on a larger screen makes it worth every penny.

Thank you again! :)
