"Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)" (live)

Yeah, yeah

The sky falls and
The earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break
The sky falls and
The earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break

Sa Pa Sé
A port of princes
A Haitian goddess
And all of my princesses
Our condolences
As we fight against this
We’re right by your side
While we trying to make sense of this
Heavenly father
Help us see through these problems
And put those that left
Accept them into your garden
So, here’s my theory
The country’s already starving
So we sacrifice many
To shed light on all of them
Y’all please
I speak from my heart
The only way I can see this tragedy befalling
So let’s get involved with it
Hand to hand, arm to arm with it
To make it strong again
When the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Haiti, mon amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no, oh no

The sky falls and
The earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break
The sky falls and
The earth quakes
We gonna 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
Under the rubble
Here we going rumbling
When we gonna catch a break
A friend lost his mother and then
Colleen lost her uncles again
Buried with no caskets
They just put covers on them
A tense call, I’ll be right back
Still it can’t end, no, not like that
No, not like this
The smallest survivors are gonna carry on your name
The broadest silence
Your memory’s alive with us
You inspired us to rebuild this country
You just guide us when the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Haiti, mon amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no

It’s not the angels that are on their way
It’s not the bells of Santa Trinité
The people waiting, positions vacant
For hands to help, not just to pray

Haitia, mi amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded

Not gonna leave you, oh no
Not gonna leave you, oh no
Not gonna leave you
The sky falls, oh no
The earth quakes, oh no

Haïti va s’élever
Tu vas te relever
Nous nous éléverons
Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble

Not gonna leave you stranded
The sky falls, not gonna leave you
Not gonna leave you stranded
The earth quakes, not gonna leave you
Oh no, oh no
The earth quakes
Oh no, not gonna leave you
We gonna put this back together
Not gonna leave you
We won’t break
The sky falls and
The earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break
