Youssou N’Dour & Neneh Cherry – 7 Seconds – 1994

    Paroles

    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
    But seven seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
    But seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting
    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 espèrent
    Beaucoup de sentiments de race qui font qu’ils désespèrent
    Je veux les portes grandement ouvertes
    Des amis pour parler de leur peine, de leur joie
    Pour qu’ils leur filent des infos
    Qui ne divisent pas changer

    Seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
    But seven seconds away
    Or 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
    But seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
    But seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
    But seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
    But seven seconds away
    Or just as long as I stay
    I’ll be waiting

    It’s not a second
