Dela

One day I looked up
And there you were
Like a simple question
Looking for an answer
Now I am a 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 think I know why the dog howls at the moon

I say 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

The blind bird sings
Inside the cage that is my heart
The image of your face comes to me
When I'm 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
I think I know, I think I know
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon

I say 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

Sondela, 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

Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
