Lyrics

Album: Past to Present

I hear the drums echoing tonight

But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation

Sheís coming in 12:30 flight

The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

I stopped an old man along the way

Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies

He turned to me as if to say, hurry boy, itís waiting there for you

Chorus:

Itís gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

Thereís nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless 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 whatís right

Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like olympus above the serengeti

I seek to cure whatís deep inside, frightened of this thing that Iíve become

Chorus

(instrumental break)

Hurry boy, sheís waiting there for you

Itís gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

Thereís nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in africa, I bless the rains down in africa

I bless the rains down in africa, I bless the rains down in africa

I bless the rains down in africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
