Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me
towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient
melodies
He turned to me as if to say,
"Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"
Verse 2
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever
do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (Oh
uh)
Verse 3
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the
Serangeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside,
Frightened of this thing that I've become
Verse 4
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever
do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (Oh
uh)
Verse 5
"Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you"
Verse 6
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever
do
I bless the rains down in Africa,
I bless the rains down in Africa, (I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa, (I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa,
I bless the rains down in Africa (I'm gonna take some
time)
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (Oh
uh)
