Great Heart Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Hot Water

Great Heart
By: Johnny Clegg
1987
Travelling always increases the appetite for new music and I found Johnny Clegg tapes in the south of France and was immediately hooked on them. I'm glad there are still younger artists who write and play their own songs that I wish I had written. This is one of them.
(chant)

The world is full of 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 searchin' for a 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 rarely know me (sometimes)
Sometimes there's so much you can show me (sometime)

There's a highway of stars across the heavens
There's a whispering song of the wind in the grass
There's a rolling thunder across the savannah
And a hope and a dream at the edge of the sky
And your life is the story of the wind
Your life is 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 rarely know me (sometimes)
Sometimes there's so much you can show me (sometime)

(chant)

Chorus:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and stand 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 rarely know me (ah... sometimes)
Sometimes there's so much you can show me (ay yai... sometime)

Coda:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Guk a 'mzimbo sala 'nhilziyo
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Guk a 'mzimbo sala 'nhilziyo
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Guk a 'mzimbo sala 'nhilziyo
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Guk a 'mzimbo sala 'nhilziyo
