Some other versions of "Africa"

step inside
so you step inside
and you hear a sound
from another room
air disturbed
with a foreign sound
and you look around

it's just got to be
you can't be sure
'til you open up the door
open up the door

steal away
so you steal away
and the light is low
and it disappears
day for night
and the passing car
and the air is charged

deep jungle of night
safe on a sullen street
soft echos of light
shimmering heat
