Africa

by Toto

Lyrics

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

I hear the drums echoing tonight

Dont feel bad...even if you didnt grow back in the day, you get it here and now! We only had radio (if they played), friends music or having to buy it! But it was gooood!
Ah yes the 80s, when "pop" had effort, cars didn't look like flying suacers, and nintendo. Not to forget guys could be cool with long hair. Wish I was around back then.
Pure poetry
Listened on my first Walkman at age 13, it was awesome!
