Rain falling like a symphony
On the roof top of my heart
There's a movement in the whispering deep
Before the new dream starts
I see your eyes shining like a neon light .
Smiling in the dark -
What made you so strong ?
I've seen you dealing in the market place
Buying political regrets
And you've been walking on the water again
But your feet never ever get wet
But you just say...

Chorus :
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
(Africa your innocent weep)
I light a candle for the innocent ones
I light a candle for our love
Say a prayer for peace on earth
For the daughters and the sons

And your life is like a cheap street fight
And you're laughing in the dark - What
Made you so strong ? (repeat)
I've been waiting all my life for this
To see how the deal gees down -
There's an AK 47 on the dashboard
And mercy's left this town, and you say...

Chorus :
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
(Africa your innocent weep)
That's the way it is...
What makes you so strong ?
