Albertine
Brooke Fraser Lyrics


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]

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

I am sitting still, I think of Angelique
Her mother's voice over me
And the bullets in the war where it fell silent

On a thousandth hill,
I think of Albertine
There in her eyes what I don't see
With my eyes

Rwanda,
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 til you are

I am on a plane
Across a distant sea
But I carry you in me
In the dust on my feet

Rwanda,
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 til you are

I will tell the world
I will tell them where I've been
I will keep my word
I will tell them, Albertine

Rwanda,
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 til you are

I am on a stage, a thousand eyes on me
I will tell them Albertine
I will tell them Albertine

When I first heard this song years ago, it sparked something in me. "Now that I have seen/ I am responsible/ faith without deeds/ is dead."

this is by far the most beautiful and moving song that I've ever heard. it actually means something unlike most of the trash we hear nowadays. this should have more views than any of the tosh we see topping the charts.
