One day I looked up and there you were,
Like a simple question looking for an answer.
Now I am a whale listening to some inner call,
Swimming blindly to throw myself upon your shore.

What if I don't find you when I have landed?
Would you leave me here to die on your shore stranded?

I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.

Dela, dela ngyanya dela when I'm with you,
Dela, sondela mama sondela, I burn for you.

I've been waiting for you all my life waiting for a miracle,
I've been waiting day and night, day and night.
I've been waiting for you all my life hoping for redemption,
I've been waiting day and night, day and night.

Dela, dela ngyanya dela when I'm with you,
Dela, sondela mama sondela, I burn for you.

A blind bird sings inside this cage that is my heart,
The image of your face comes to me when I'm alone in the dark.
What if I could give a shape onto this ache I have for you,
What If I could find a voice to speak the words to capture you.

I think I know, I think I know, I think I know, I think I know'
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.

I sing dela, dela ngyanya dela when I'm with you,
Dela, sondela mama sondela, I burn for you.

I sing dela, dela ngyanya dela when I'm with you,
Dela, sondela mama sondela, I burn for you.
