Lyrics

Yousou N'Dour singing in his mother tongue;

Boul ma sene, boul ma guiss madi re nga fokni mane
Khamouma li neka thi sama souf ak thi guinaw
Beugouma kouma khol oaldine yaw li neka si yaw
mo ne si man, li ne si mane moye dilene diapale

°Neneh Cherry taking over here;

Roughneck and rudeness,
We should be using, on the ones who practice wicked charms
For the sword and the stone
Bad to the bone
Battle is not over
Even when it's won
And when a child is born into this world
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin is living in
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting X3

°Youssou N'Dour again, singing in french(translated in english by "The SenSeï");

-j'assume les raisons qui nous poussent de changer tout,
I assume the resons's that leads us to change everything,

-J'aimerais qu'on oublie leur couleur pour qu'ils esperent
I'd wich we would forget their color so they can hope

-Beaucoup de sentiments de races qui font qu'ils desesperent
lots of sensations(or fellings) lots of races that leads them to despair

-Je veux les portes grandements ouvertes,
I wan't the doors wide open,

-Des amis pour parler de leur peine, de leur joie
friends to talk about theire sorrow, about theire joy
("peine" is sorrow, sadness trouble, difficulty or can be a criminal sentence
etc)

-Pour qu'ils leur filent des infos qui ne divisent pas
so they can give'em infos that do not divide(scatter)

-Changer
change

°Neneh Cherry as lead vocals henceforth;

7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting X3
And when a child is born into this world
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin is living in
And there's a million voices
And there's a million voices
To tell you what she should be thinking
So you better sober up for just a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
