The River

Paint me a picture of a river
And let it flow
Just let it flow
It will flow and wash
Away our differences
And love will grow
You have the power to deliver
So let it flow
When I dip my hand into your water
I feel your soul

Nafikiria kurudi shamba
Nafikiria kurudi shamba

I’ll do the fire by your river
Of melted stone
You can drink the silver of my moonlight
As our fire burns
The fire burns
I’ll slide inside your silent water
Like polished stone
Then brake the surface with a shiver
While the river flows

Nafikiria kurudi shamba
Nafikiria kurudi shamba

Paint me a picture of a river
And let it flow
Just let it flow
All across the deserts
And the mountains
We’ll let it go
And let it go

Nafikiria kurudi shamba
Nafikiria kurudi shamba

Nafikiria kurudi shamba (swahili) – “I am thinking of going back to the land”.
