The World is Calling Lyrics

Johnny Clegg
Tonight I had a happy hour
And loved your gentle style
I grabbed the day with both hands
It has taken me a while
I've been waiting to breathe out
To look up and see you smile
Walking through your laughing country
Free from exile

CHORUS
But I must rise now and leave your company
The world is calling and the road is longer
And as I go now my heart is breaking
Will I ever see you again?

Through all tribulation
Through all fake pretence
Just an hour of your company
Gives my life true sense
Like a prisoner holding out
For a final visit
I see you through my empty glass
And you can fill it

CHORUS

But I must rise now and leave your company
The world is calling and the road is longer
And as I go now my heart is breaking
For will I ever see you again?
What is this feeling and I hardly know you?
What is this sorrow as I walk away ?

Hold onto this night forever
Hold onto this night - remember!
