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

Sak Pase my Port au Princes
My Haitian gods and all of my princesses
Our condolences as you’re fighting against this
We’re right by your side while we try to make sense of this

Heavenly father, help us see through these problems
And those that left accept them in your garden
See here’s my theory
The country’s already starving
So we sacrifice many to shed light on all of them

Y’all please pardon me
I speak from my heart
It’s the only way I can see through this tragedy befallen them
So let’s get involved with them
Hand in hand with them
Arm in arm with them
Til they get strong again

When the sky falls
Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

Haiti amie, 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


We learn from the past
New Orleans was flooded
So we know we just can’t rely on the government
We under the rubble again
Who we going rumblin’ with
Who we gonna catch a break
A friend lost his mother, and then
Carlene
Lost her uncles, and then
And then buried with no caskets
They just put covers on them

And the tears fall, and we fight back
The story can’t end, no not like that
No not like this
This mob of survivors gonna carry on your name
You live on inside us
Your memories alive with us
You who inspired us
To rebuild this country, you just guide us

Not tomorrow
Can’t wait until tomorrow

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

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

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