lyrics

We can hear you calling in the air tonight, Genius
We've been waiting for this moment for all our lives, Genius
Can you hear us calling in the air tonight, Genius?

Well you told us you've been drowning
We want to lend a hand
We've seen your words
Seen your thoughts
But you don't know who we are.
We met your friend and we saw what you'd done
We want to thank you for what you shared
So try to contact us
Lucy knows where we are
But we don't know where you are

We can hear you calling in the air tonight, Genius
We've been waiting for this moment for all our lives, Genius
Can you hear us calling in the air tonight, Genius?
We've been waiting for this moment for all our lives, Genius

She remembers, she remembers, don't worry
How could she ever forget
The first time we met, Lucy showed us your poetry
Oh we know the reason why you state your story
Your story was felt not just by us
The hurt in this world shows
Responsibility will grow
Your voice will be heard

We can hear you calling in the air tonight, Genius
We've been waiting for this moment for all our lives, Genius
Can you hear us calling in the air tonight, Genius?
We've been waiting for this moment for all our lives, Genius

about

We Drew Genius Gweru, Zimbabwe

These words are written by Genius, a young African man, when he was a young orphan living on the streets of Zimbabwe.
Through a chain reaction, an Englishman living in Argentina, without having met Genius, composed music for the words and recorded them across the planet with Alex James. We have created this page to try to support Genius in whatever way we can. He is now in school loving Sciences!!
