the plane had barely touched down.

She was taking photos for the friends back home.

for two weeks in Africa.

Verse 2 - Same as above
Johannesburg to Houston,
she came home on a mountain.
But school was starting, things kept moving on.
Before you knew it, seven years had gone.
She found a picture of her,
standing, smiling,
arms around the starving kids.
She swore not to forget,
she swore not to forget...


Two Weeks in Africa - Caedmon's Call pg2

Bridge -
And if we follow our dear sun
                                                  C#m  G#m
to where the stars are not familiar.
C#m                         G#m
Faces turn to numbers,
numbers fall like manna from the sky.
Why, oh why?
Oh Father, why?

Drum Break (4 bars)

Verse 3 -

One village in Malawi now has water running pure and clean.
One church alive in Kenya's full of truth and love and medicine.
We put the walls up, but Jesus keeps them standing.
He doesn't need us, but He lets us put our hands in.
So we can see, His love is bigger than you and me.

(Chorus X2)
