The Crossing
Clegg Johnny Lyrics

Through all the days that eat away
At every breath that I take
Through all the nights I've lain alone
In someone else's dream, awake

All the words in truth we have spoken
That the wind has blown away
It's only you that remains with me
Clear as the light of day
O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
(we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
(we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
(we are crossing over those dark mountains)
Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
(where we will lay down our troubles)

A punch drunk man in a downtown bar
Takes a beating without making a sound
Through swollen eyes he sways and smiles
'Cause no one can put him down

Inside of him a boy looks up to his father
For a sign or an approving eye
Oh, it's funny how those once so close and now gone
Can still so affect our lives


Take me now, don't let go
Hold me close, I'm coming home

As we mourn your death not forgetting the liberation of free spirited songs, you have proven to the Nations that learning and embracing Multi-language it's possible. How can we forget your Humanity, Laughter when the odds were against the Black Nation you taught us that's it's ok to be Vulnerable and get lost in the music.

To: Jenny (Warrior's Wife)

Thank you for lending South Africa the time to Listen, Bond, Laugh, Dance with your Husband. He could have done a lot with you but you gave us a change to share experiences with him.

It's now sad we have say Good bye, We will always have goose bumps when we listen to his to his music still. But the Battle of Cancer is gone he will feel no pain any as Umdali is waiting for him.

I can say more and deep things that happen during his time when he enter the Industry but now those songs built us to where we are today

Great Heart
Johnny Clegg
The world is full of strange behaviour
Every man has to be his own saviour
I know I can make it on my own if I try
But I'm searching for a great heart to stand me by
Underneath the african sky
A great heart to stand me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
To hold and stand me by
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
Under african sky
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
I see the fire in your eyes
I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart
That beats my name inside
Sometimes I feel that you really know me
Sometimes there's much you can show me
There's a highway of stars across the heavens
The whispering song of the wind in the grass
There's the rolling thunder across the savanna
A hope…

This video should be played before every Parliament sitting, before every political rally and before every interview with any politician. Because this is who the broader public is. And despite the attempts by our politicians to divide us, this harmony is what most South Africans want. This should be the soundtrack to our revolution, where we take away the divisive rethoric from our politicians and remind them that most of us want peace and unity. Well done to all the artists. You made a middle aged white guy shed a tear for what South Africa is suppose to be.

Wilberforce Mwedzi

This is very true & it should serve as a good message to all those who who dont know what unity is all about

Carrington Ward

I'm fascinated by the way US and South African politics keep mirroring each other....
