House of Exile
Lucky Dube Lyrics


Freedom fighter standing on a mountain
In a foreign country
Trying to send a message
To his people back in the ghetto
He had a home one time, love of a girl
But he left that behind

Oh yes I can hear him clearly
as he whispers in the air
His voice came out loud and clear
All he asked for was a prayer
And as he turns to walk away
He said

I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation

Sun went down on the mountain
Birds flew back to their hiding places
Leaving him standing there like a telephone pole
In the still of the night you and I dream
Dreaming of Romeo and Juliet

All he dreams about is the freedom of the nation
When every man will be equal in the eyes of the law
As he closes his eyes for the last time
He said again

I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation

Oh yes I can hear him clearly as he whispers in the air
His voice came out loud and clear

All he dreams about is the freedom of the nation
When every man will be equal In the eyes of the law

For the last time he said again
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation

Freedom fighter standing on a mountain in a foreign country
Trying to send a message to his people back in the ghetto
He had a home one time, love of a girl
But he left that behind
Oh, yes, I can hear him clearly as he whispers in the air
His voice came out loud and clear
All he asked for was a prayer and as he turns to walk away
He said
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
Sun went down on the mountain, birds flew back to their hiding places
Leaving him standing there like a telephone pole
In the still of the night you and I dream
Dreaming of Romeo and Juliet
All he dreams about is the freedom of the nation
When every man will be equal in the eyes of the law
As he closes his eyes for the last time
He said again
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
I'm still here in the house of exile
For the love of the nation
