Album African Litany. African Litany Lyrics. Trapped in a moment of history You changed the world and the day was yours Laughing sun flashing from your smile Your beach-bronzed body braced against the wind But you forgot the wheel keeps turning And one day the dawn left you behind And though I tried to love you I really have to go 'cause the world is leaving you behind. The world is leaving you behind The world is leaving you behind. I'll sing an african litany for you An african litany for me An african litany for you And I hope we see these times through.
