“Over Africa”
Words & Music: Roxanne Seeman – Billie Hughes

I wake in the morning to your eyes
With the dawn shining down on me
Every moment I’m alive
With the feeling of your love strong inside I see
Oh, you and I like dark clouds in the sky
Now we’re burstin’ free
Oh, feel the rains comin’ down
Feels so good all over me

I hear the chanting and the bells
In the early morning hours of India
I know the distant drums of the forest
Deep inside Africa

Warm are the waters
Beside the cedars of the Lebanon
I know this love that I hear calling
Waits for me as a pillow to sleep upon
I’ve searched the world for the key
To the kingdom beneath the stars
Sailed on the seas high and low
And I know that it’s where we are

I hear the chanting and the bells
In the early morning hours of India
I know the distant drums of the forest
Deep inside Africa
I hear the callin’ of the prophet
From the land of the sun as he faces east
You are the beauty of my sky
In the morning where we lie here you bring me peace

Days of heat when the land was dry
And the earth burned my feel
Woa, feel the rains comin’ down
Feels so good and tastes so sweet

I hear the chant of the Buddhist priest
I know the drums of the forest
And the bells ringing from the East

I’ve tasted of the sweetness of your love
And it’s bringin’ me from the past
Waited for this moment to become
What I know we have found at last

I hear the chanting and the bells
In the early morning hours of India
I touch my head to the ground, I feel it
Freedom is now upon Africa
I hear the callin’ of the prophet
From the land of the sun as he faces east
You are the beauty of my sky
In the morning where we lie here you bring me peace…
