I Wish

Wish I understood your language
Wish in your planet they count time like us
Could dance in the motherly rain much longer
Rainbow bringing out you beauty

And when morning comes with its cruel sun
You won’t melt away with its rioting heat
Golden suns rays cheering in unison
Like saints in the cathedral

From the shores of angry Lake Rudolf
To slopes of lonely Mt Kilimanjaro, I will gather
My headsmen with cattle and shining spears
We’ll set a camp all night waiting for you

Looking at the shooting stars in heavens plate
And when u show up we’ll dance and dance
Our tradition songs and we will wrestle
Breaking the self consuming loneliness

Women gathering the finest perfumes
Henna, precious stones by the sneaky river
Natives preparing kids making lessons for you
Grow them to be kings and great warriors

Wishing that you will dwell amongst my people
Beautiful life without an end
Teaching you about us, how we worship
Showing ours how they gather in your land

La la la without an end……we sing
Uuuuuuuuuuuuuu la la ……we sing
The last dream before even the
Sleep goes away forever
