Tough Enough

Lomhlaba unzima, Lomhlaba

Picture the end of a cycle
here's the fire from heaven
There's a tired planet closing down
no more news at eleven
somewhere the last of a species has died
somewhere a child is born
when I hold you, I tremble inside
can we ride out the storm?

Are you tough enough, can you take the strain?
Are you tough enough, to walk in the burning rain
Are you tough enough, can you take the change?
Are you tough enough, baby just say!

[Chorus]
Into the heart of the human dream
into a strange new world
remember me under the Tree of Man
where I first heard your words
gonna make it through, I can feel it

What we need is a miracle
what we need is some time
what we need is an angel of Mercy
in this life

Are you tough enough, can you take the heat?
Are you tough enough, to walk in the burning street
Are you tough enough, can you take the change
Are you tough enough, baby just say!

[Chorus]

There's your mama and your papa
waving good-bye in the cold moonlight
in their eyes the confusion of a world gone by
and you hold me tightly as we step out
into the morning light
and I know you are thinking that for something to be born
something has to die.

[Chorus]

Vele vele we mama kunjalo
