LYRICS:

When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break

Sa Pa Sé
My Port-Au-Princes
My Haitian goddess
And all of my princesses
Our condolences as you’re fighting against this
We’re right by your side
As we’re trying to make sense of this
Heavenly father
Help us see through these problems
And for those that left
Accept them into your garden
So here’s my theory
The country’s already starving
So we sacrificed many
To shed light on all of them
God please pardon, I speak from the heart
It’s the only way I see this tragedy befalling them
So lets get involved with them
Hand to hand with them, arm to arm with them
Until they get strong again
When the sky falls

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Haiti, mon amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no, oh no

When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won’t break

Learn from the past
New Orleans was flooded
So we know we just can’t rely on the government
We under the rubble again
Here we go rumbling
When we gonna catch a break
My friend lost his mother and then
And then, Caroline lost her uncles and them
Buried with no caskets
They just put covers on them
And the tears fall, and we fight back
The story ain’t done, it can’t end like that
Nah not like this
Tomorrow’s survivors are gonna carry on your name
You live on inside us
Your memory’s alive with us
You inspired us to rebuild this country
You just guide us

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow
Haiti, mon amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no, oh no

It’s not the angels that are on their way
It’s not the bells of Santa Trinité
The people waiting, position vacant
for hands to help, not just to pray

Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble
Ensemble, ensemble, ensemble

Haiti, mon amour
Haiti, mon amour
Not gonna leave you stranded
Hey, not gonna leave you stranded
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Not gonna leave
Haïti va s’élever
Not gonna leave
Tu vas te relever
Oh no
Nous nous éléverons
Oh no
Ensemble ensemble ensemble

We’re gonna put this back together, we wont break
Not gonna leave stranded
We’re gonna put this back together, we wont break
Not gonna leave you stranded
We’re gonna put this back together, we wont break
Not gonna leave you stranded
We’re gonna put this back together, we wont break
We’re gonna put this back together, we wont break
