Song Lyrics

[Jay-Z - Chorus]
When the sky falls and the Earth quakes
We gonna put this back together
We won't break

my Haitian Gods and all of my Princesses
Our condolences as you fighting against this
we right by your side as we trying to make sense of this
heavenly father help us see through these problems
and for those thats 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 me, I speak from the heart
its 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 til they get strong again,
When the sky fallsâ€Â¦

(Rihanna and Bono â€" hook)
Can't wait until tomorrow
Haiti, Mon Amour
Haiti, Mon Amour
Not gonna leave you stranded, alone, alone
oh no


[Jay-Z Verse 2]
We learned 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, when we gon catch a break
my friend lost a mother and then (and then)
lost some uncles and then
buried with no caskets they just put covers on them
and the tears fall and we fight back
story ain't done, can't end like that
nah not like this, (?) survivors gon carry on your name
you live on inside us, your memories alive with us
you inspired us, to rebuild this country, you just guide us

Its not the angels that around the way
its not the bells of Santa Trinite
the people waiting, position vacant(?)
for hands to help, not just to pray

we gon put this back together we wont break
we gon put this back together we wont break
we gon put this back together we wont break
we gon put this back together we wont break
