Nina Simone – Thulasizwe/i Shall Be Released lyrics

Traditional

Thulasizwe ungabokhala
You jehova wakho uzokunqobela

Inkululeko, inkululeko
You jehova wakho uzokunqobela

They say everything can be replaced
Yet every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see the light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place too high above this wall

Now yonder standing me in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear his voice shouting so loud
Crying out that he was framed

I see the light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released
