Lyrics

Interpretation of early black and white haitian love songs One. Oceans wept Moutains slept Sidewalks crumbled to ash Your name remains In children's lullabies And your eyes forever in the sky Two. Pull me close Dear I'm tremblin' Hold me tight I'm afraid ot the night Blackness fills the room Your love burns bright Three. Oh summer winds Remind me of your kiss Soft and warm I never want to leave this Four. I never wanted to say goodbye I'd throw myself to the sea If God promised you're inside We'd float to island paradise And I'd become your bride Five. The countryside looks bare Without you lying in her grass The stream is dry And the crickets silent There's no music in the night I'd become smoke And hide in your cigarette pack Seven. To be a star Tossing light To sparkle in your eyes I'd become an angel And kiss this earth goodbye Eight. Destiny Used to be Just a word to me But heaven sure was right When they said Jesus left somethin' behind Nine. Every inch of this body I'd plate in gold for you Even though I ain't go no money I'd do it just to keep you Ten. Your eyes appear In every one of my dreams They glitter and they gleam Like the first time we meet Eleven. The chickens crowed And I knowed your home My spirit ran to greet you Before my feet left the porch
