lyrics

Felix

Felix left his home in Mozambique
Without a kiss upon the cheek
When the light was low

To the mountains of the king
He stood his ground of holy men
Through a bitter wind

And through the distance of the years
Did you feel your mother's prayers
Touched a weary soul

I will miss you now you’re gone
In these taxis they play your songs
Silhouetted on the souls
Through the township drive

When you're searching for the truth
You will lose your worn out shoes
Felix played beyond the rules
Like a shining star

Crossing borders driving north
Along the paths that Felix walked
I feel him all around

The more you try to understand
I feel the love of saving hands
Why the good die young?

I will miss you now you’re gone
In these taxis they play your songs
Silhouetted on the souls
Through the township drive

When you’re searching for the truth
You will lose your worn out shoes
Felix played beyond the rules
Like a shining star

Felix left his home in Mozambique
For the mountains of the king
