There's a whispering song of the wind in the grass
There's a rolling thunder across the savannah

And your life is the story $like$ %of% 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)%
