7 Seconds Lyrics

7 Seconds (Duet With Neneh Cherry) - Youssou N'Dour

Written by:Jonathan Sh

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

7 seconds away

 

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

It's not a second

7 seconds away

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

I'll be waiting

 

J'assume les raisons qui

Nous poussent de changer tout

 

J'aimerais qu'on oublie leur

Couleur

 

Pour qu'ils esperent

Beaucoup de sentiments de

Race qui font qu'ils desesperent

Je veux les portes

Grandements ouvertes

Des amis pour parler

De leur peine de leur joie

Pour qu'ils leur filent

Des infos qui ne divisent pas

Changer

7 seconds away

 

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

It's not a second

 

7 seconds away

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

I'll be waiting

 

I'll be waiting

 

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

7 seconds away

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

Ohoh

It's not a second

7 seconds away

 

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

Ohh

It's not a second

7 seconds away

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

It's not a second

7 seconds away

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

Poul vi denho

It's not a second

7 seconds away

 

Just as long as I stay

 

I'll be waiting

 

It's not a second

 

7 seconds away
