Hear me, near me, oh Africa
My brothers and sisters cry
I can’t sit and watch even if I try
We are scared of our fathers
Yet we become young mothers
Killing has become a game
We play it with no shame
For so long I’ve been running
Not knowing were I’m going
Just to escape the great pain
Seeing kids drown in the drain
Africa are you there?
We are all waiting here
Come save us
Stop this mess
It’s pain I can’t keep
It’s in me so deep
Hear my cry, oh Africa
Save me, oh Africa
