Song Lyrics

Yeah, yeah, yeah

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 we fightin’ against this
We right by your side, while we tryin’ to make sense of this
Heavenly Father, help us see through these problems
And for those who slept, accept them into your garden
So 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
The only way I can see this tragedy befallin’
So let’s get involved with them, hand to hand
Arm to arm with them, till they get strong again
When the sky falls

Not tomorrow, yeah
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 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

Carline lost her uncles and then
Buried with no caskets, they just put covers on them
And our tears fall, but we fight back
Story can’t end, no, not like that
No, not like this, swarm of 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
When the sky falls

Not tomorrow, yeah
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Hai… / Haitianna
Haiti a mi amour / Yeah
Haiti mon amour / Yeah
Not gonna leave you stranded / I’m, not, no, leave, you, yeah
Hai-ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-ay / That’s right, uh-huh
Not gonna leave you stranded / C’mon
Oh no, nuh-huh
Oh no, no-no

It’s not the angels that are on their way
It’s not the bells of Sainte Trinité
The people waitin’, positions vacant
For hands to help, not just to pray / Oh-no-no-no-no-no
Hey, hey / Oh-no-no-no-no-no
Yeah, yeah, yeah / Oh-no-no-no-no-no / C’mon

Hai… / Haitianna / That’s right
Haiti a mi amour / Yeah
Haiti mon amour / Yeah, I, say
Not gonna leave you stranded / Yeah, huh-uh
Hai-ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-ay / Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Not gonna leave you stranded, never gonna leave you
No, never gonna leave you
No, never gonna leave you

Sky falls / No
Earth quakes / Oh no / Haiti va s’élever
Sky falls / Never gonna leave / Tu vas te relever
Earth quakes / Never gonna leave you / Nous nous éléverons
Sky falls / Oh no / Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble

That’s right / Oh no / Not gonna leave you stranded
Sky falls, earth quakes / Never gonna leave you
Not gonna leave you stranded / Never gonna leave you, oh no / Sky falls, earth quakes
Gon put this back together we won’t break / Oh no
Sky falls, earth quakes / Never gonna leave you
We gon put this back together we won’t break / Never gonna leave you
As the sky falls, and the earth quakes
We gon put this back together we won’t break
