Paroles "The Crossing (Osiyeza)" - Johnny Clegg

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

All the words in truth that were spoken
That the wind has blown away
Oh, it's only you that remains with me
Clear as the light of day

O siyeza, o siyeza
Sizofika webaba noma
O siyeza, o siyeza
Siyagudle lomhlaba
Siyawela lapheshaya
Lulezontaba ezimnyama
Lapha sobheka phansi
Konke ukhulupheka

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

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

O siyeza (oh, I'm comin'), o siyeza (I'll be comin')
Sizofika webaba noma (you know the tide is turnin')
O siyeza, o siyeza (you know the tide is turnin')
Siyagudle lomhlaba (make my crossin')
Siyawela lapheshaya (over this dark land)
Lulezontaba ezimnyama (gonna touch your face)
Lapha sobheka phansi (gonna lay me down)
Konke ukhulupheka (in your grace)

Take me now
Don't let go
Hold me close
I'm comin' home!

O siyeza (oh, I'm comin'), o siyeza (I'll be comin')
Sizofika webaba noma (you know the tide is turnin')
O siyeza, o siyeza (I'm tellin' you, the tide is turnin')
Siyagudle lomhlaba (gonna make this crossin')
Siyawela lapheshaya (over this dark land)
Lulezontaba ezimnyama (gonna touch your face)
Lapha sobheka phansi (gonna lay me down)
Konke ukhulupheka (in that green field of grace)

O siyeza (oh, I'm comin'), o siyeza (oh, I'm comin')
Sizofika webaba noma (oh, I'm comin', oh, I'm comin')
O siyeza, o siyeza (oh, I'm comin', gonna lay me down)
Siyagudle lomhlaba
Siyawela lapheshaya (gonna make my crossin' over this dark land)
Lulezontaba ezimnyama (I'm gonna touch your face)
Lapha sobheka phansi (gonna lay me down)
Konke ukhulupheka (in your green fields of grace)

O siyeza, o siyeza
Sizofika webaba noma
O siyeza, o siyeza
Siyagudle lomhlaba
Siyawela lapheshaya
Lulezontaba ezimnyama
Lapha sobheka phansi
