Femi Kuti – The Way Our Lives Go Lyrics

{Verse 1}
The way our lives go
We’re passing through a world we don’t really know
Some don’t even show any interest in the globe

Pretending all their lives
They don’t see with their eyes
They don’t hear the people cry
They don’t care if they die

But little do they know
That whiles they do their evil deeds
We are not done
For the guidian angel sees

And one day the people will rise
And victory shall rain through the skies
And we will have the peace of mind
For everything will truly be fine

{Chorus}
(One day the people will rise) Will rise
(And say to the suffering goodbye) Goodbye
(Just a matter of time) Matter of time
(The people will rise and shine) Rise and Shine

(One day the people will rise) Will rise
(And say to the suffering goodbye) Goodbye
(Just a matter of time) Matter of time
(The people will rise and shine) Rise and Shine

{Verse 2}
Today not tomorrow
The suffering must stop, no more sorrow
Time we cannot borrow
The path of righteousness we must follow

From corruption there is no gain
History teaches us again and again
Corruption will only bring pain
And block the way for peace to reign

Change is on the way
For nothing ever remains the same
The suffering is not a game
Our pride and dignity we will re-claim

One day the people will rise
And victory shall rain through the skies
And we will have that peace of mind
For everything will truly be fine

{Chorus}
(One day the people will rise) Will rise
(And say to the suffering goodbye) Goodbye
(Just a matter of time) Matter of time
(The people will rise and shine) Rise and Shine

(One day the people will rise) Will rise
(And say to the suffering goodbye) Goodbye
(Just a matter of time) Matter of time
(The people will rise and shine) Rise and Shine

One day the people will rise
And say to the suffering goodbye
It’s just a matter of time
The people will rise and shine

One day the people will rise
And say to the suffering goodbye
It’s just a matter of time
The people will rise and shine

{Outro}
The way our lives go
The way our lives go
The way our lives go
The way our lives go

The way our lives go
The way our lives go
The way our lives go
That’s the way our lives go
