THE GOD'S LOVE NUBIA Lyrics

Take me in my dreams recurring

Cheerful as a childhood dance

Into one more taste of freedom

One more longing backward glance

In the sway of somber music

I shall never, never understand

Let me slip into the sweeter

Chorus of that other land

The gods love Nubia, the beautiful, the golden

The radiant, the fertile, the gentle and the blessed

The pain of Nubia is only for the moment

the desolate the suffering

the plundered, the oppressed

NEHEBKA

The gods love Nubia, their glorious creation

Its songs roll sweetly across the harvest plain

NEHEBKA & AIDA

The tears of Nubia, a passing aberration

They wash into the river and are never cried again

AIDA, NEHEBKA, MEREB & NUBIAN WOMEN

The gods love Nubia, we have to keep believing

The scattered and divided, we are still it's heart

AIDA

The fall of Nubia, ephemeral and fleeting

The spirit always burning though the flesh is torn apart.

ALL

The fall of Nubia

Ephemeral and fleeting

The spirit always burning

Though the flesh is torn apart

Take me in my dreams recurring

Cheerful as a childhood dance

Into one more taste of freedom

One more longing backward glance

The gods love Nubia, the beautiful, the golden

The radiant, the fertile, the gentle and the blessed

The pain of Nubia is only for the moment

the desolate the suffering

the plundered, the oppressed

The gods love Nubia

we have to keep believing

Though scattered and divided we are still it's heart

The fall of Nubia ephemeral and fleeting the spirit always

Burning though the flesh is torn apart

The spirit always burning though the flesh is torn apart

AIDA

Apart

AIDA & NUBIANS

Take me in my dreams recurring

One more longing backward glance

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

Scene One

STARSCAPE

AIDA, RADAMES and AMNERIS are alone in their thoughts, frozen in separate

places. The laser forms the triangle around them.
