The Crossing lyrics by Johnny Clegg (with

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
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
(English meaning: we are crossing over those dark mountains)
Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
(English meaning: 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
O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
(English meaning: we are crossing over those dark mountains)
Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
(English meaning: where we will lay down our troubles)
Take me now, don’t let go
Hold me close, I’m coming home
O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
(English meaning: we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
(English meaning: we are crossing over those dark mountains)
Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
(English meaning: where we will lay down our troubles)
