Johnny Clegg – Your Time Will Come lyrics

Waqamb' amanga mus' ukuqamb' amanga
[you were lying, do not tell lies]
Wangi qambela amanga ufuna ukungilahlisa
Ithemba lami wemame!
[You told lies, trying to mislead me,
So that I would give up my faith and hope.]
Washo njalo! Wathi ikusasa lethu
Selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[that is what you said -- you said that our future is hopeless,
Our tomorrow is bleak, you were lying,
Trying to mislead us]
Ngeke sivuma -- ngeke silahla itemba
[No can do! We will never relinquish our faith]
Chorus:
Kuzulonga ukuthi nini? Asazi!
[Everything will be all right --
It's just when this will be, we cannot know]
Kuzolonga wena 'mngane wami
[Everything will come right, I tell you friend]]
Masuku lahla ithemba lakho
[Do not throw away your hope]
Mina ngapha wena ngapha sizoyi bamba
[Me holding on one side, you holding on the other side
Together we will pull through]
Thina nawe, thina nawe
[you and me, you and me]
Umoya wami onakele
[my spirits are down]
Wena wemtaka antie hawu wangi shayisa uvalo
[I say to you child of my aunt, you have caused me great fear]
Washo njalo! Wathi ikusasa lethu
Selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[You told lies, trying to mislead me,
So that I would give up my faith and hope.]
Washo njalo! Wathi ikusasa lethu
Selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[that is what you said -- you said that our future is hopeless,
Our tomorrow is bleak, you were lying,
Trying to mislead us]
Ngeke sivuma -- ngeke silahla itemba
[No can do! We will never relinquish our faith]
Chorus:
Kuzulonga ukuthi nini? Asazi!
[Everything will be all right --
It's just when this will be, we cannot know]
Kuzolonga wena 'mngane wami
[Everything will come right, I tell you friend]
Kuzolonga 'mngane wami ngiyakutshela
[It will be all right my friend, I'm telling you]
Woza wesibindi! Uyaphilisa uyabulala
[come true courage, for it is you who gives
Life and takes it away
Mina ngapha -- wena ngapha sizoyibamba
[me on this side, you on the other,
We will hold it together]
Ungalalleli law' amanga 'mngane wami
[don't listen to the lies of my compatriot]
Oh sizobahlula thina nawa
[we will be victorious in the end, just you and me]
Oh thina nama
[just you and me]
I saw the Berlin Wall fall
I saw Mandela walk free
I saw a dream whose time has come
Change my history -- so keep on dreaming
Deam on dreamer, dreamer
In the bst of times and in the worst of times
Gotta keep looking at the skyline
Not at a hole in the road
Your time will come, sister, your time will come
Nobody's gonna rush history, we have to ease it along
-- just ease it along
