Youssou N'Dour featuring Neneh Cherry - 7 Seconds

  • 0:15 - 0:18
    Don't see me from a distance
  • 0:18 - 0:22
    Don't look at my smile, and think that I don't know
  • 0:22 - 0:28
    What's under and behind me
  • 0:28 - 0:34
    I don't want you to look at me and think
  • 0:34 - 0:40
    What's in you is in me, what's in me is to help them
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    Roughneck and rudeness
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    We should be using on the ones who practiced wicked charms
  • 0:45 - 0:48
    For the sword and the stone
  • 0:48 - 0:49
    Bad to the bone
  • 0:49 - 0:51
    The battle's not over
  • 0:51 - 0:53
    Even when it's won
  • 0:53 - 0:59
    And when a child is born into this world
  • 0:59 - 1:01
    It has no concept
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    Of the tone the skin it's living in
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    It's not a second
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    We're 7 seconds away
  • 1:10 - 1:14
    Just as long as I stay
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    I'll be waiting
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    It's not a second
  • 1:19 - 1:22
    We're 7 seconds away
  • 1:22 - 1:26
    Just as long as I stay
  • 1:26 - 1:29
    I'll be waiting
  • 1:29 - 1:33
    I'll be waiting
  • 1:36 - 1:40
    I'll be waiting
  • 1:44 - 1:49
    I assume the reasons that push us to change everything
  • 1:50 - 1:55
    I would like us to forget about their color so we can hope
  • 1:55 - 1:59
    Too many views on race that make them desperate
  • 1:59 - 2:01
    Let's leave the doors wide open
  • 2:01 - 2:04
    So they can talk about their pain and joy
  • 2:04 - 2:07
    Then we can give them information that will bring us all together
  • 2:07 - 2:09
    Changer
  • 2:09 - 2:12
    7 seconds away
  • 2:12 - 2:16
    Just as long as I stay
  • 2:16 - 2:19
    I'll be waiting
  • 2:19 - 2:21
    It's not a second
  • 2:21 - 2:24
    We're seven seconds away
  • 2:24 - 2:28
    Just as long as I stay

  • 2:28 - 2:32
    I'll be waiting

  • 2:32 - 2:35
    I'll be waiting

  • 2:38 - 2:43
    I'll be waiting

  • 3:11 - 3:16
    And when a child is born into this world

  • 3:16 - 3:18
    It has no concept

  • 3:18 - 3:22
    Of the tone the skin it's living in
  • 3:22 - 3:27
    And there's a million voices
  • 3:27 - 3:32
    And there's a million voices
  • 3:32 - 3:36
    To tell you what you should be thinking
  • 3:36 - 3:39
    So you better sober up for just a second
  • 3:39 - 3:42
    We're 7 seconds away

  • 3:42 - 3:46
    Just as long as I stay
  • 3:46 - 3:49
    I'll be waiting
  • 3:50 - 3:52
    It's not a second
  • 3:52 - 3:54
    We're 7 seconds away
  • 3:54 - 3:58
    Just as long as I stay
  • 3:58 - 4:01
    I'll be waiting
  • 4:03 - 4:04
    It's not a second
  • 4:04 - 4:07
    We're 7 seconds away
  • 4:07 - 4:11
    Just as long as I stay
  • 4:11 - 4:18
    I'll be waiting [fade out]
