LOMHLABA UNZIMA, LOMHLABA
(this world is a harsh place, this world)
Picture the end of a cycle
Here's the fire from heaven
There's a tired planeet 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 his 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!
Tell me are you tough enough
Tell me are you tough enough
Oh Oh are you tough enough
Tell me 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 - VELE VELE WE MAMA
(It is true, it's obvious. Mama, it is just as you say)
