albertine lyrics – brooke fraser

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]

[brigde]
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
