So Many Men

Performers: YoussouN'Dour and Pascal Obispo
Songwriter: YoussouN'Dour
Nothing's In Vain (Coono Du Reer)
2002 Nonesuch Records
ASIN: B00006JP29

Freedom, oppression, life and death. This film montage would have us accept that in diversity we are all alike. We experience loss, seek love and finally, a journey into the unknown through death.

I feel like a bird today
I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna make it
Set me free

C'est un jour qui se lève sur si peu de liberté
Damay daw wuti làqukaay wuti fa liberté
Tant de gestes pareils, sans cesse recommencés
Daw naa làqu ngir nekk man wuti fa liberté
So many men...
Look this way
So many people
There's so much to do and so much to give today
So many men...
Something new...
So many people
There's so much to see if only they'd look this way

Garder les yeux ouverts sans voir de liberté
Dawa dawa dawa dawa ba génn
Wuutu leneen li gën ci man

N'en faire jamais assez
Serait-ce trop pour essayer,
Juste un peu de liberté?

Jééma xam li wawral lii, fii daal lu ko fi jar,
Ban couleur, ban gént la

So many men...
Look this way
So many people
There's so much to do and so much to give today
So many men...
Is something new?
So many people
So much to see today
so many men...
Look this way - I fell like a bird today
There's so much to give and so much to do today - I'm gonna
show you, I'm gonna make it
Set me free
So many men - Will it change? - so many people - Just open
your eyes - so many trials, so many
Places...
Set me free
I fell like a bird today
I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna make it
Set me free
Just open your eyes, turn around, look this way...

Dust in the Wind

Music and Lyrics: Kerry Livgren
Artist: Kansas, from: Point of No Return, 1977, Kirshner
Legacy/Epic
Tunes download

Dust in the Wind attempts to illustrate our confrontation with the essential fragility of life. It is a call to meditate on the essential….

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Give A Little Bit

Supertramp. Composer: Roger Hodgson
Even in the Quietest Moments
1977 A&M
ASIN: B000068FXX

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you
There's so much that we need to share
So send a smile and show you care

I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my life for you
So give a little bit
Give a little bit of your time to me
See the man with the lonely eyes
Oh, take his hand, you'll be surprised

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
Give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my life for you
Now's the time that we need to share
So find yourself, we're on our way back home

Going home
Don't you need, don't you need to feel at home?

Say take a look, come along too
Come along right
Come along way
Sing it tonight
