Neneh Cherry and Youssou N'Dour - 7 Seconds


Boul ma sene, boul ma guiss madi re nga fokni mane
Khamouma li neka thi sama souf ak thi guinaw
Beugouma kouma khol oaldine yaw li neka si yaw mo
ne si man, li ne si mane moye dilene diapale

Roughneck and rudeness, We should be using, on
the ones who practice wicked charms For the sword
and the stone Bad to the bone Battle is not over
Even when it's won

And when a child is born into this world It has
no concept Of the tone the skin is living in

It's not a second But seven seconds away Just as
long as I stay I'll be waiting It's not a second
But seven seconds away Just as long as I stay I'll
be waiting (x3)

J'assume les raisons qui nous poussent de changer
tout J'aimerais qu'on oublie leur couleur pour
qu'ils espèrent Beaucoup de sentiments de
race qui font qu'ils désespèrent Je
veux les portes grandement ouvertes Des amis pour
parler de leur peine, de leur joie Pour qu'ils
leur filent des infos Qui ne divisent pas changer

Seven seconds away Just as long as I stay I'll be
waiting It's not a second But seven seconds away
Just as long as I stay I'll be waiting(x3)

And when a child is born into this world It has
no concept Of the tone the skin is living in

And there's a million voices And there's a
million voices

To tell you what she should be thinking So you
better sober up for just a second

Seven seconds away Just as long as I stay I'll be
waiting It's not a second But seven seconds away
Just as long as I stay I'll be waiting It's not a
second But seven seconds away Just as long as I
stay I'll be waiting
