African Dream

This song is by Stewart Copeland, features Ray Lema and appears on the movie soundtrack The Rhythmatist (1985).

spoken:
Around here there’s feeling in everything you see
There’s a story behind every tree
Just look at the people on this street
I know everybody I meet

sung:
And it’s hard for us
In the deepest jungle
It’s so natural for us
In the African dream

Sounds, faint but chill, distant, pierce the pregnant dust
But it's home for us in the deepest jungle
Green, green, green and wet in the river zone
Hissing on jungle palms and you’re all alone

Mighty roar the beasts
Of our darkest dreams
In the darkest night
In the deepest jungle

In a place that’s very far away
He makes many things to please us in every way
The world outside just sees the pain
Those little things have let us down

And everyone knows
That we’re still dreaming
It’s so natural for us
In the African dream

Mighty roar the beasts
Of our darkest dreams
In the darkest night
In the deepest jungle

Stewart Copeland and Ray Lema
