Great Heart - Jimmy Buffett

Great Heart
-----------
by Johnny Clegg

This world is filled with strange behavior
Every man has to be his own savior
I know I can make it on my own if I try
But I'm looking for the great heart to stand me by
Underneath the African sky
A great heart to stand me by

Chorus:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and keep me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Under African sky
Sometimes I feel that you barely know me
Sometimes there's so much you can show me

There's a highway of stars across the heavens
There's a whispering sound of the wind in the grass
There's a rolling thunder across the savannah
A hope and a dream at the edge of the sky
And your heart beats a story like the wind
Your heart beats a story like the wind

Chorus:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and keep me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Under African sky
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
I see the fire in your eyes
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
That beats my name inside
Sometimes I feel that you barely know me
Sometimes there's so much you can show me

(chant)

Chorus:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and keep me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Under African sky
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
I see the fire in your eyes
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
That beats my name inside
Sometimes I feel that you barely know me
Sometimes there's so much you can show me

Guk a 'mzimbo (body grow old)
Sala 'nhilziyo (but heart remain behind)
