Song Lyrics

Also an African dream
Africa

From the bridge at Selma in Mississippi
To the mouth of the river Nile
From the swamplands of Louisiana
To the high peaks of Kilimanjaro
From Dr. King’s America
To Nelson Mandela’s Africa
The journey of equality moves on
On, on, on

I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls that hold us back tonight
I wanna reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I wanna feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I wanna take shelter from the hurricane
Where the streets have no name, oh

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We’re still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all we can do

The city’s a flood, our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I’ll show you a place
It’s high, it’s high
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all we can do

Love, love, love
Oh-oh love, oh-oh love

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all…all we can do

Africa
The journey of equality moves on
