lyrics

It took me a long time
Just to dream of California
Where the golden valleys roll on for miles
But I woke up in another place
That calm December night
Warm inside

My long-lost brother
Twice removed
Darker than the night
Sang but I couldn’t understand
But he smiled a smile from my father’s side
True as the day
Soft as the rain

Kandote
Tukole wamu
Tussé kimu
Tuli ba musayi gumu
(and I dream of being one, together, for we are one blood)

And for the sake of our own trades
We went our separate ways
I walked into a lonely afternoon
And shivering by the night
And oh, the moon, a light on me
A light on you

Kan-do-te, tukole wamu, tussé kimu
Tuli ba musayi gumu
(and I dream of being one, together, for we are one blood)
