The Crossing (Osiyeza) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Through all the days that eat away
At every breath that I take
Through all the nights I've lain alone
In someone else's dream, awake
Verse 2
All the words in truth we have spoken
That the wind has blown away
It's only you that remains with me
Clear as the light of day
Verse 0
O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
(we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
(we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
(we are crossing over those dark mountains)
Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
(where we will lay down our troubles)
Verse 3
A punch drunk man in a downtown bar
Takes a beating without making a sound
Through swollen eyes he sways and smiles
'Cause no one can put him down
Verse 4
Inside of him a boy looks up to his father
For a sign or an approving eye
Oh, it's funny how those once so close and now gone
Can still so affect our lives
Verse 5
Verse 6
Take me now, don't let go
Hold me close, I'm coming home
Verse 7
