Jay-Z:
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break

Sak Pase
My Port-Au-Princes
My haitian god
And all of my princesses
Our condolences
As you fightin’ against this
We’re right by your side
While we tryin’
To make sense of this
Heavenly father help us
See through these problems
And for those that’s left
Accept them into your garden
So here’s my theory
The country’s already starvin’
So we sacrificed many
To shed light on all of them
God please pardon
I speak from the heart
It’s the only way
I see this tragedy
Befall on them
So lets get involved with them
Hand to hand with them
Arm to arm with them
‘Till they get strong again
When the sky falls

Rihanna/Bono:
Not tomorrow
Can’t wait
Until tomorrow
Heeey
Haiti a mi amour
Haiti mon amour
Not gonna
Leave you stranded
Oh no
Oh no

Oh no

Jay-Z:
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
When the sky falls
And the earth quakes
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break

Learn 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 his mother and then
And then
Carline lost her uncles and them
Buried with no caskets
They just put covers on them
And the tears fall
And we fight back
Story ain’t done
It can’t end like that
Nah not like this
Tomorrow’s survivors
Gonna carry on your name
You live on inside us
Your memory’s alive with us
You inspired us
To rebuild this country
You just guide us

Rihanna/Bono:
Not tomorrow
Can’t wait
Until tomorrow
Heeey
Haiti a mi amour
Haiti mon amour

Bono:
Not gonna
Leave you stranded
Heeyeeyeey
Not gonna
Leave you stranded
Oh no
Oh no

It’s not the angels
That are on their way
It’s not the bells
Of Santa Trinite
The people waiting
Positions vacant
For hands to help
Not just to pray

Rihanna/Bono:
Heeey
Haiti a mi amour
Haiti mon amour
Not gonna
Leave you stranded
Heeyeeyeey
Not gonna
Leave you stranded

Rihanna:
Not gonna leave, no (Bono: oh no)
Not gonna leave, no (Bono: oh no)
Hoo noo
Hoo no
Not gonna leave

Bono:
Haïti va s’élever (Rihanna: not gonna leave)
Tu vas te relever (Rihanna: hoo no)
Nous nous éléverons (Rihanna: hoo no)
Ensemble ensemble ensemble

(Jay-Z: We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break)

Not gonna
Leave you stranded
Not gonna
Leave you stranded
(Not gonna
Leave you standed)

Jay-Z:
We gon’ put this back together
We won’t break
