Ti Moune Lyrics


[MAMA]
What can I say to stop you now
Now that you've heard your drums
And seen your dancers
Now that you think your heart has
All the answers...

Who knows how high
Those mountains climb
Who knows how deep
Those rivers flow
Who knows how wrong
A dream can go
Ti Moune

[TONTON]
I won't be there to guide your way

[MAMA]
To braid your hair or dry your tears

[BOTH]
As we have done these many years
Ti Moune
Ti Moune

[TONTON]
What you are, we made you
What we gave, you took
Now you run without
One backward look

[MAMA]
You'll find some other boy to save
Some other life that you can share
Your heart is young
New dreams are everywhere
Choose your dreams with care
Ti Moune

[TI MOUNE (Spoken)]
But I have chosen, Mama, I'm not a child
any longer.

What I am, you made me
What you gave, I owe
But, if I look back, I'll never go

Who knows how high
Those mountains climb

[MAMA, TONTON]
Who knows how high
Those mountains climb

[TI MOUNE]
Who knows how deep
Those rivers flow

[MAMA, TONTON]
Who knows how deep
Those rivers flow

[TI MOUNE]
I know he's there
That's all I need to know...

[TONTON]
Go and find your love

[MAMA]
Go and swim the sea

[BOTH]
You know where we'll be

[TI MOUNE]
Always there with me...

[ALL THREE]
