Xavier Naidoo I’d be Waiting Liedtext


I’d be waiting

Waiting for a lifetime

I’m sure

I said I’d be waiting

Waiting for a lifetime

And more

If that serious alliance lies ahed

Let every necessary word be said

Remembering the blood that we’ve shed

Keep in mind that there are things we must forget


Beware of tragedy left, right and center

Don’t allow hell on earth to enter

Get rid of all the damage in your head

Remember there’s an enemy in your head


The joke’s on me, for sure

But then wishes and hopes come true, for sure

It’s you, for sure

Out of the blue, for sure

It’s you, for you’re past rich and poor

Towards that hard encore



Ey yo, I’ve walked on the African sands like the Khoisan

The original man from land sacred

Battled Zulu tribes for the passion of word play and swam

Across the Zambezi butt naked

I’ve seen the sun rise in the east and set in the west

Plotted star charts and directions for God to manifest

From the peaks of pyramids I left tags in dark caves

Gave humanity clues on how to star gaze

Seen a snake shed its skin like the seasons and change

Seen world re-arrange in a flash; now for this cash

They rape Mother Africa for wealth

It’s left me stranded in a spiritual realm all by myself

Headed to Mecca I stopped and spoke Swahili with tribes

Chanted native dialects over the hills, I felt vibes

Threw my hands to the sky then beat them hard on a drum

Over the horizon, I waited for freedom to come

But the ships just keep sailing, whips just keep cracking

Wonder where I’m lost so I begin backtracking

Through the Solomonic Dynasty, I read the Kebra

Took me swift across the planes like riding on a zebra

The Ashanti draped me in robes of royality

Shana Tribe blessed me with this lyrical ability

Purely infinite and there’s just no debating

When I finally saw, all along who’s been waiting
