7 Seconds
Youssou N'Dour Lyrics


Boul ma sene, boul ma guiss madi re nga fokni mane
Khamouma li neka thi sama souf ak thi guinaw
Beugouma kouma khol oaldine yaw li neka si yaw
Mo ne si man, li ne si mane moye dilene diapale

Roughneck and rudeness,
We should be using, on the ones who practice wicked charms
For the sword and the stone
Bad to the bone
Battle is not over
Even when it's won
And when a child is born into this world
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin it's living in
It's not a second

7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting

J'assume les raisons qui nous poussent de changer tout,
J'aimerais qu'on oublie leur couleur pour qu'ils esperent
Beaucoup de sentiments de race qui font qu'ils desesperent
Je veux les portes grandements ouvertes,
Des amis pour parler de leur peine, de leur joie
Pour qu'ils leur filent des infos qui ne divisent pas
Changer

7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting

And when a child is born into this world
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin it's living in
And there's a million voices
And there's a million voices
To tell you what she should be thinking
So you better sober up for just a second

7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

Amo la música

No me veas desde la distancia
No veas a mi sonrisa y piensa que yo no sé
Que hay abajo y detrás de mi
No quiero que me veas y pienses
Que lo que está dentro de ti está en mí
Lo que está dentro de mí es ayudarles a ellos

Matanza y groserias
Deberíamos utilizar
En los que practican encantos perversos
Por la espada y la piedra
Malos hasta los huesos
La batalla no se ha terminado
Incluso cuando se gana
Y cuando un niño nace en éste mundo
No tiene ningún concepto
De el tono de la piel en la que está viviendo

No es un segundo
7 segundos lejanos
El tiempo que me quede
Estaré esperando
No es un segundo
7 segundos lejanos
El tiempo que me quede
Estaré esperando
Estaré esperando
Estaré esperando

Asumo que las razones que nos empujan para cambiar todo
Quisiera que olvidaramos su color para que puedan tener esperanza
Muchas opiniones de la raza que los hacen desesperar
Deseo que las puertas estén completamente abiertas
A los amigos para hablar de su dolor y su alegría
De modo que podamos dar información
Que no nos dividan para cambiar

7 segundos lejanos
El tiempo que me quede
Estaré esperando
No es un segundo
7 segundos lejanos
El tiempo que me quede
Estaré esperando
Estaré esperando
Estaré esperando

Y cuando un niño nace en éste mundo
No tiene ningún concepto
De el tono de la piel en la que está viviendo
Y hay un millón de voces
Y hay un millón de voces
Para decirte lo que deberías estar pensando
Así que mejor que tomes sobriedad por un segundo



Dienes Bastos
