    Lyrics

    so sad I had to go
    (Kouyate)

    a total stranger came between us

    until it's safe no-one will know
    (Kouyate)
    there is a secret between us

    we must keep it to ourselves
    (Kouyate)
    all the love we shared between us

    we can't tell nobody else
    (Kouyate)
    there is a secret between us

    1
    staring hard at my tv
    but that blue flicker doesn't comfort me
    it hurts so much
    the memory of her tender touch
    in my dreams I call

    a man-of-war on glory road
    a native girl whose tale was never told
    now we must live a lie
    to point blank accusations I
    have denied it all

    I live for the day
    I live for the hour
    when I'm free to speak your name
    and reveal to the world - our secret

    2
    underneath that bowl of stars
    she lay me down to heal my battlescars
    she taught me love
    the one thing I knew nothing of
    and she made me see

    I had to leave that scattered place
    I kept the secret to avoid disgrace
    but there will come a time
    when I return to make her mine
    in a world so free

    I live for this day
    I live for this hour
    when I'm in your arms again, yeah
    and we both yield to love's power

    (bridge)

    be patient now we can't resist
    the racing storm of prejudice

    hate ... has ... silenced ... love ...

    we took the village by surprise
    no time to see the strangers hate filled eyes
    for this sad consequence
    they had no defense
    in the midst off all that pain
    I heard her call
    "Kouyate is my name
    love conquers all"

    solo

    I live for this day
    I live for this hour
    when I'm in your arms again
    and we both yield to love's power

    so sad I had to go
    (Kouyate)
    with so much love to share between us

    until it's safe no-one will know
    (Kouyate)
    there is a secret between us
