Remedy – Winnie Mandela lyrics

Winnie Mandela born a princess
She's a prisoner in her own land
Her only crime was to fall in love
With a strong and honest man
Her only crime was she fell in love

Winnie Mandela knows of heartache
She's married but seldom a wife
She found the strength to rise above
The pain the trouble and strife
Oh yes she rose above the pain the trouble and strife

Winnie Mandela fuelled by the love of her land
Winnie Mandela lives for the love of her man
Her only crime was she fell in love

Winnie Mandela lives with real pain
Keeps it hidden until the night
For 20 years she has slept alone
Tears can never put that right
For 20 long years she's slept alone

Repeat CHORUS X2
