Africa (What Made You So Strong) Lyrics by Savuka
Rain falling like a symphony
On the roof top of my heart
There’s a movement in the whispering deep
Before the new dream starts
I see your eyes shining like a neon light .
Smiling in the dark – What made you so strong ?
-What made you so strong ?
I’ve seen you dealing in the market place
Buying political regrets
And you’ve been walking on the water again
But your feet never ever get wet
But you just say…
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
I light a candle for the innocent ones
I light a candle for our love
Say a prayer for peace on earth
For the daughters and the sons
And your life is like a cheap street fight
And you’re laughing in the dark – What
Made you so strong ? (repeat)
I’ve been waiting all my life for this
To see how the deal gees down –
There’s an AK 47 on the dashboard
And mercy’s left this town, and you say…
Afrika kukhala abangcwele !
That’s the way
It is.. .What makes you so strong ?
