Lyrics - African Dream





Lyrics. What's music without them?

Much like you, we have just about had it struggling to find African lyrics online.
So we decided to do something about it.
We are building up a repository of African music. Not only Africappella music, but whatever African music we can find.
Granted this is no small feat, but we know we can count on you to help make this documentation project a success.

African Dream (Vicky Sampson)

- composed by: Alan Lazar, Marilyn Nokwe

Key Signature = B major

(Stanza 1)
Sometimes alone in the evening
I look outside my window
At the shadows in the night
I hear the sound of distant crying.
The darkness multiplying
And weary hearts denied
All I feel is my heart beat
Beating like a drum
Beating with confusion.
All I hear are the voices
Telling me to go
But I can never run

(Chorus)
'Cos in my African Dream
There's a new tomorrow.
My African dream
Is a dream that we can follow.

(Stanza 2)
Now when the night begins to fall
I listen for your call
I listen for your heartbeat
Alone, my dream is just a dream
Another false illusion
A shadow in the night.
All I want is for our heart
To beat just as one
To silence the confusion.
And the pain and the illusion
Will disappear again
And we will never run.

(Chorus Extension)
And though it could seem
My hope is an illusion
My African dream
Is an end to the confusion

(Vamp)
Iphupho lethu leAfrika
Ninekusasa elihle
Ngiphuph' uAfrika
Sizolilandela 'maAfrika
Siyayibona inhlanzi
Ukukhanya kwentokozo
Iphupho lethu leAfrika
Ukuphela kwenkinga zonke
