Song Lyrics

When the sky falls and the earth quakes
We gon put this back together we won’t break
When the sky falls and the earth quakes
We gon put this back together we won’t break

Sak pasé, my Port au Princes
My Haitian Gods and all of my Princesses
Our condolences as you fightin’ against this
We’re right by your side, while we tryin’ to make sense of this
Heavenly Father, help us see through these problems
And for those that left, accept them into your garden
See here’s my theory, the country’s already starvin’
So we sacrifice many to shed light on all of them
God please pardon, I speak from my heart
It’s the only way I can see this tragedy befallin’ them
So let’s get involved with them, hand in the hand with them
Arm in the arm with them, till they get strong again
When the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Hai… / Haitianna
Haiti a mi amor
Haiti mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no

When the sky falls and the earth quakes
We gon put this back together we won’t break
When the sky falls and the earth quakes
We gon put this back together we won’t break

We learned from the past, New Orleans was flooded
So we know we just can’t rely on the government
We under the rubble again, here we go grumbling when
When we gon catch a break, my friend lost his mother and then
And then
Carline lost her uncles and then
Buried with no caskets, they just put covers on them
And the tears fall, and we fight back
Story ain’t done, it can’t end like that
Nah, not like this, tomorrow’s survivors gonna carry on your name
You live on inside us, your memory’s alive with us
You inspired us, to rebuild this country, you just guide us

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Hai… / Haitianna
Haiti a mi amor
Haiti mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hai-ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-ay
Not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no

It’s not the angels that are on their way
It’s not the bells of Sainte Trinité
The people waitin’, positions vacant / (Oh-no-no-no-no-no)
For hands to help, not just to pray / Oh-no-no-no-no-no
Oh-no-no-no-no-no
Oh-no-no-no-no-no

Hai… / Haitianna
Haiti a mi amor
Haiti mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hai-ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-ay / Haiti mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded, never gonna leave
Oh no, never gonna leave
Oh no, alone, alone

Never gonna leave / Haiti va s’élever
Never gonna leave / Tu vas te relever
Alone / Nous nous éléverons
Alone / Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble

We gon put this back together we won’t break / Not gonna leave you stranded
We gon put this back together we won’t break
We gon put this back together we won’t break / Not gonna leave you stranded
We gon put this back together we won’t break
We gon put this back together we won’t break / Not gonna leave you stranded
We gon put this back together we won’t break
We gon put this back together we won’t break
