Johnny Clegg – Tough Enough lyrics

Lomhlaba unzima, lomhlaba
[this world is a harsh place, this world]
Picture the end of a cycle
Here's the fire from heaven
There's a tired planeet closing down
No more news at eleven
Somewhere the last of a species has died
Somewhere a child is born
When I hold you, I tremble inside
Can we ride out the storm?
Are you tough enough -- can you take the strain?
Are you tough enough -- to walk in the burning rain
Are you tough enough -- can you take the change?
Are you tough enough -- baby just say!
Chorus:
Into the heart of the human dream
Into a strange new world
Remember me under the Tree of Man
Where I first heard your words
Gonna make it through, I can feel it
What we need is a miracle
What we need is some time
What we need is an angel of Mercy
In this life
Are you tough enough -- can you take the heat?
Are you tough enough -- to walk in the burning street
Are you tough enough -- can you take the change
Are you tough enough -- baby just say!
Chorus...
There's your mama and your papa
Waving good-bye in the cold moonlight
In their eyes the confusion of a world gone by
And you hold me tightly as we step out
Into the morning light
And I know you are thinking that for something to be born
Somthing has to die.
Chorus...
Vele vele we mama kunjalo
[It is true, it's obvious. Mama, it is just as you say].
