Standing on the Earth seagull flying
Standing on the Earth the sky is bleeding
Standing on the Earth sun is leaving
Leaving us behind
One there was an African love song
Helped us on our way
Made our hearts feel as strong
As the African Day
Bye bye December African rain --
The long gone summer has passed
And I hear the owls calling my name
The firelight has danced its last
Across your face my friend
And though I love you
I somehow know this is going to be the end
Now the sun has disappeared
And all that remains
An old tin mug and a photograph
So wipe away those tears and remember the good times
Hum oh
Standing on the Earth, moon is rising
Somewhere in the world -- spirit flying
Standing on the Earth -- leaves are falling
Taking us away
I never knew whom I could love more -- you or the land
Till I stood lost upon that shore -- naked and alone
'Cause all the birds have flown away
The night is closing in
It's so hard to say goodbye to eyes as old as yours my friend
Where did the time go?
Can you tell me where did the time go?
time life show
life time go
Where did the time go?
Where did your life go?
Can you tell me where did your life go?
