    "Rolling Ocean" Lyrics

    Johnny Clegg

    You are the rolling ocean
    You are the mighty sea
    You are the breath that brings each new day to me
    You are what you are, you are
    You be what you are, you be what you are

    Some came to conquer
    Some came to understand
    Some came to live their lives as best they can
    Me, I looked up at the stars to find my way
    But I was young and I got them mixed up

    And so forgot my name
    As I tried to remember you were standing next to me
    While other came seeking power
    You, you had come to set them free


    Women of salt and earth
    They tell the same story
    They saw you walking wounded
    Wearing rags of glory
    And when you rejoiced they saw you smiling at your rejoicing
    When you wept they saw you smiling at your weeping
    When you smiled they saw you smiling at your smiling
    And you said "That's the way I've survived these years of dust and


    Suffer little children
    Suffer sister, brother too
    Suffer mother, father
    That's all the world can promise you
    In our hearts we feel it
    A mighty dream is coming true
    Hold on and we'll dream it
    Keep it up we're going to push it through
    Don't give it up, don't give it up
