Level 42 - Kouyaté Lyrics




So sad I had to go
(Kouyate)

A total stranger came between us

Until it's safe no-one will know
(Kouyate)
There is a secret between us

We must keep it to ourselves
(Kouyate)
All the love we shared between us

We can't tell nobody else
(Kouyate)
There is a secret between us

Staring hard at my tv
But that blue flicker doesn't comfort me
It hurts so much
The memory of her tender touch
In my dreams I call

A man-of-war on glory road
A native girl whose tale was never told
Now we must live a lie
To point blank accusations I
Have denied it all

I live for the day
I live for the hour
When I'm free to speak your name
And reveal to the world - our secret

Underneath that bowl of stars
She lay me down to heal my battlescars
She taught me love
The one thing I knew nothing of
And she made me see

I had to leave that scattered place
I kept the secret to avoid disgrace
But there will come a time
When I return to make her mine
In a world so free

I live for this day
I live for this hour
When I'm in your arms again, yeah
And we both yield to love's power

Be patient now we can't resist
The racing storm of prejudice

Hate ... has ... silenced ... love ...

We took the village by surprise
No time to see the strangers hate filled eyes
For this sad consequence
They had no defense
In the midst off all that pain
I heard her call
"Kouyate is my name
Love conquers all"

[solo]

I live for this day
I live for this hour
When I'm in your arms again
And we both yield to love's power

So sad I had to go
(Kouyate)
With so much love to share between us

Until it's safe no-one will know
(Kouyate)
There is a secret between us

    Turn on a popular music radio station, tv channel or see whats trending on any major music platform. That is how. This kind of music is dead. Unfortunately.
