.

When I look at all the choices I made in my life
It’s like some natural law
When they bring me trouble and strife
I find my way to your door
Like a wheel , turning round  and round 
I always find you 
And lay my head down
We’re like some warriors from some forgotten war
Recalling songs from a long forgotten shore
 
CHORUS
 
YITHI UMANQOBA ( we are the victorious
SESANQOBA IZIZWE( we conquered the world 
UMA UFUNA THINA  WOZA!( if you want to take us on , come!
UZODELA INKANI( you will be satisfied…
 
 
 
Once we were warriors 
Now we are the playthings of fortune
We always stood on solid ground
Standing back to back 
To the wind we threw caution
Nothing could bring our hearts down
 Now I sometimes feel we are nowhere bound
Then I hear an old familiar sound
It’s a song from a time when we were kings 
Conquered the world and flew on eagle’s wings
 
CHORUS
 
Yesterday’s  gone and tomorrow is just a dream
All we have  is NOW
Nobody knows where the time goes , where the time goes ….
