Lake Victoria

Lorne Clarke & Tom Flannery
Lingua: Inglese



I once thought sins were washed away
by the waters of the Lord
healing built from rivers
and a quiet streaming ford
Lake Victoria is in my dreams
that day I did declare
you can baptize me another way
I'll not set foot in there

Some look and see reflection
on the surface gliding by
when the sun it bounces off you
and then heads back towards the sky
but my mother rests below you
carried by Kagera's flow
when Victoria will give her up..
well this I do not know

Victoria how do you sleep
what other secrets do you keep
surface gone from blue to brown
someday I'll will myself to drown

When killers live among you
and they look you in the eye
when a child grasps an empty hand
and then begins to cry
when darkness comes and spreads not fear
but a welcome from the sight
Lake Victoria will disappear
at least for the night

Victoria how do you sleep
what other secrets do you keep
surface gone from blue to brown
someday I'll will myself to drown

I once thought sins were washed away
by the waters of the Lord
healing built from rivers
and a quiet streaming ford
Lake Victoria is in my dreams
that day I did declare
you can baptize me another way
I'll not set foot in there
