The Crossing
Johnny Clegg & Savuka 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
[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Johnny Clegg healed South Africa, so sad we don't have such artists anymore and the country is going backwards again.

Rest in eternal peace Johnny Clegg. Your music touched a lot of people. Go on and rest now Legend 🙏🏽🙏🏽

May his soul rest in peace, the man who crossed the racial lines while it was still unpopular to do so

Chantal Abro

He has passed but his music will live on in our hearts 💕 and keep his magic alive

Richard Kok

A prophetic song that he released 26 years ago. Today Johnny made his final crossing.

Erica Van der Berg

Always in tears when I listen to this song. You were lost to the world much to soon

Shane Holmes

My absolute my favorite Johnny Clegg song of all time. What a message..... Many South Africans should appreciate the thought behind the lyrics. Love you Johnny and Savuka

It's never easy to say goodbye. Rest easy, in the Lord's arms. No more pain. You fought a great fight
