Peace Drum

Music and lyrics by Nina Christensen

 

I'm not going under, the peace drum is keeping me up

Many days I've wandered, I've wandered with too many thoughts

But the peace drum is holding me up, making me cope with my head

 

I'm not going under, the peace drum is keeping me up

It feels just like a wonder, a wonder that we are alike

that we were placed side by side, I find myself to be the lucky kind

and I'm not breaking down..

 

I'm not going under, the peace drum is keeping me awake

it's making me stay up all night, all night, all night

I'm not going under, and someone makes my heart go wild

makes me feel like all is alright, alright, alright..

 

I'm not going under, the peace drum is keeping me up

But it sings about the worry, the worry, I won't turn out fine  

Forever dancing high above ground, a tight rope between two feet and the sound

of someone breaking down

 

I'm not going under, the peace drum is keeping me awake

it's making me stay up all night, all night, all night

I'm not going under, and someone makes my heart go wild

makes me feel like all is alright, alright, alright...

 

 ...allright, allright! This is the kind of loving that might just be bad,

but really he still makes me high and that boy sure taught me to fly
