Lyrics:
I hear the drums echoin' tonight
She hears only whispers of some quiet conversation.
She's coming in, twelve-thirty flight.
Moonlight wings reflect the stars
That guide me toward salvation.
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words,
Or ancient melodies.
He turns to me as if to say
"Hurry, boy, it's waiting there for you"
It's gonna take alot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred man or more could ever do.
I pass the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
The wild dogs cry out in the night.
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company.
I know that I must do what's right,
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.
I seem to cure what's deep inside,
Frightened of this thing that I've become.
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you,
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
I pass the rains down in Africa,
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you.,
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
I pass the rains down in Africa ...
