Waiting Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Here we stand waiting on the plain
Darkness has taken the last outpost of the day
Somewhere gunships hunt their illusive prey
And I know inside you feel the same way
Ngempilo yami yonke
(With all my life)
Kudala ngilindele
(So long I've been waiting)
Verse 1
The sky in your heart is so grey
And the jackals howl inside
I see you walking with your head down
Tomorrow is always betrayed
By too much hope displayed
So you take it as it comes now
Ngempilo yami yonke
(With all my life)
I'm waiting, I'm waiting
Verse 2
You've learned to live inside the space
That connects each link of chain
And you say you've got some peace of mind now
But I know you're waiting all the same
With an ache that has no name
When you feel the fresh breath of the invisible wind
Ngempilo yami yonke
(With all my life)
Waiting, I'm waiting
Verse 3
I will undo these chains
Ngizowakhumula amakhethanga
(I will undo these chains)
Verse 4
[Chorus]
