Africa, has the shape of a broken heart
And the heart of a broken land

Fell from heaven
Straight to hell
Now your children are missing

I try to understand
Who I am
Years after years
God, it feels the same

Party favors
Everybody's gone
Ain't noone that I know
Anybody won

Africa has the shape of a broken heart
And the heart of a broken land

Fell from heaven
Straight to hell
Now your children are missing

Kiss their forehead
And hold their hands
Close their eyes
And put their name on their graves

Dust is dust
And so goes our faith
So goes our faith

Africa has the shape of a broken heart
And the heart of a broken land

Fell from heaven
Straight to hell
Now your children are missing

And the wind blows
And the children grow old
Sitting on the side of a road
Watching all the boats, ooh

Africa has the shape of a broken heart
And the heart of a broken land

You fell from heaven
Straight to hell
Now your children are missing

Now I understand
Who I am, who I am, who I am
Who I am, who I am

Tell me how, tell me how, tell me how
I can accept the thing
things that I can't change
accept the things that I can't change
