Dela Lyrics

Dela by Johnny Clegg  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


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 shores
What if i don't find when i have landed
Would you leave me here to die on your shores 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! ngiyadela!

When i am 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
And 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 why the dog howls at the moon.
I think i know why the dog howls at the moon.

I say:
"dela! dela! ngiyadela!

When i am 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

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

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.
