 The world is full of strange behavior
 EAB
 Every man has to be his own savior
 EAB
 I know I can make it on my own if I try
 EEAB
But I'm $searching$ %searchin'% for a great heart to stand me by 
 EAB
Underneath the African sky
 EAB
great heart to stand me by
Chorus:
 EAB
 I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
 EAEB
 To hold and keep me by 
 EAB
 I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
 EAEB
 Under African sky

There's a whispering song of the wind in the grass
There's a rolling thunder across the savannah
$A$ %And a% hope and a dream at the edge of the sky
And your life is the story $like$ %of% the wind
Your life is a story like the wind
Chorus:
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and $stand$ %keep% me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Under African sky
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
I see the fire in your eyes
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
That beats my name inside
Sometimes I feel that you rarely know me %(sometimes)%
Sometimes there's so much you can show me %(sometime)%
