Weeping - Josh Groban/Ladysmith Black Mambazo/Vusi Mahlasela

I knew a man who lived in fear

 

It was huge it was angry

 

It was drawing near

 

Behind his house a secret place

Was the shadow of the demon

He could never face

 

He built a wall of steel and flame

 

And men with guns to keep it tame

 

Then standing back he made it plain

 

That the nightmare would never ever rise again

 

But the fear and the fire and the guns remain

 

It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

 

He tells the world that it's sleeping

 

But as the night came round I heard

It slowly sound

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

And then one day the neighbors came

They were curious to know about the smoke and flame

 

They stood around outside the wall

 

But of course there was nothing to be heard at all

 

"My friends"

He said "We've reached our goal

 

The threat is under firm control

 

As long as peace and order reign

I'll be damned if I can see a reason to explain

 

Why the fear and the fire and the guns remain"

 

It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

 

He tells the world that it's sleeping

 

But as the night came round I heard

It slowly sound

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

Say ah say ah say ah

 

Say ah say ah say ah

 

It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

 

It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

 

It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

 

He tells the world that it's sleeping

 

But as the night came round i heard

It slowly sound

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

It wasn't roaring it was weeping

 

Say ah say ah say ah

 

Say ah say ah say ah

 

Say ah say ah say ah

 

Say ah say ah say ah
