Beautiful Lyrics <3

Was listening yesterday to my all time favorite band (Johhny Clegg and Savuka) since childhood and I couldn’t help myself but posting parts of the lyrics to one of their songs called “Dela”. It’s simply beautiful..

“One day I looked up and there you were
Like a simple question looking for an answer
Now I am the whale listening to some inner call
Swimming blindly to throw myself upon your shore
What if I don’t find you when I have landed
Would you leave me here to die on your shore stranded

I think I know why the dog howls at the moon
I sing dela, dela
Ngyanya
Dela
When I’m with you
Dela, sondela mama
Sondela, I burn for you

I’ve been waiting for you all my life hoping for a miracle
I’ve been waiting day and night, day and night
I’ve been waiting for you all my life waiting for redemption
I’ve been waiting day and night, I burn for you

A blind bird sings inside the cage that is my heart
The image of your face comes to me when I am alone in the dark
If I could give a shape to this ache that I have for you
If I could find the voice that says the words that capture you

I think I know,

I think I know why the dog howls at the moon”
