emotional allegiance (stand by me) lyrics – johnny clegg

i don’t want to be a tourist in your heart
i don’t want to visit someone else’s ruins
don’t want a day trip to the feelings in the dark
don’t want a quick-fix honeymoon
bridge:
we need: emotional allegiance, devotional love
a living promise like in the story of ram
chorus:
raghupati raghava raja ram
pat*te pavana sita ram
stand be me — feel the sun
emotional allegiance — divine love
there’s a change in the weather
and a hole in the sky
snow in the summer
and the rivers run dry
who will guard your fragile dreams of rain
when your heart is tired of daytrippers
and n*body stays….
bridge:
we need: emotional allegiance, devotional love
a living promise like in the story of ram
chorus…
