I am sitting still
I think of Angelique
her mothers voice over me
And the bullets in the wall where it fell silent
And on a thousandth hill, I think of Albertine
there in her eyes what I don't see with my own
Rwanda

[Chorus]
now that I have seen, I am responsible
Faith without deeds is dead
now that I have held you in my own arms, I cannot let go till you are

I am on a plane across a distant sea
But I carry you in me
and the dust on, the dust on, the dust on my feet
Rwanda

[Chorus]

I will tell the world, I will tell them where I've been
I will keep my word
I will tell them Albertine

[Chorus]

I am on a stage, a thousand eyes on me
I will tell them, Albertine
I will tell them, Albertine
