AFRICAN DREAM LYRICS

Chorus

That's my African dream
Eyes to the stars, fire in my heart
Roots of it all, My African dream
Can we stand together like a young Mandela
Inspiring a future for us all

Verse 1

Beneath the rays of an African sun
Paint a day of a child raised up in the heart of these slums
Young, fatherless son, runs to school to the beat of an African drum
Hungry to read with each turn, see he eager to learn
Feet burn, from the street no shoes on his feet
To you, he just another kid with his feet in the gutter
Hear him speak, son is deep,
Wants to build a castle for his sister and his mother
But the system want to judge us,
Why's that? cos we 3rd world and we coloured
Young brothers on the come up
Running for the sunlight, one time, even though the road rough
Whole life hard, but we know love
Shine with a power divine, in our young eyes

Chorus

That's my African dream
Eyes to the stars, fire in my heart
Roots of it all, My African dream
Can we stand together like a young Mandela
Inspiring a future for us all

Verse 2

This for my black stars shine on
Lil Biko's riding through life's storms
Super eagles soaring for Zion
With the heart of an African lion
Eyes on freedom, like Madiba dreaming on Robyn island
Divine strong, my people ignite bright beacons to light
All tribes united for one cause, more love enough war
Billion warriors roar, stamping hands and our feet
Until the elephant can no longer sleep
Planting our seeds, so the future can harvest the dream
Africa, finally free from the injustice of history's handcuffs
My people stand up, the worlds ours now sing louder

Chorus

That's my African dream
Eyes to the stars, fire in my heart
Roots of it all, My African dream
Can we stand together like a young Mandela
Inspiring a future for us all

Bridge

(singing part)
My momma used to sing
Keep that love in your heart boy
Eyes to the stars boy
Fight to the end, desire to win, one day you'll be king
That's your African dream, my African dream
(rap part)
One love, one tribe unite, down for the dream our time all rise x4

Chorus

That's my African dream
Eyes to the stars, fire in my heart
Roots of it all, My African dream
Can we stand together like a young Mandela
Inspiring a future for us all
