Asimbonanga

[Chorus]
Asimbonanga
Asimbonang' umandela thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'ehleli khona

Oh the sea is cold and the sky is grey
Look across the island into the bay
We are all islands till comes the day
We cross the burning water

[Chorus]

A seagull wings across the sea
Broken silence is what I dream
Who has the words to close the distance
Between you and me

[Chorus]

Asimbonanga
Asimbonang 'umfowethu thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'wafela khona
Hey wena
Hey wena nawe
Sofika nini la' siyakhona
