One day I looked up and there you were
Like a simple question looking for an answer
Now I am a whale listening to some inner call
Swimming blindly to throw myself upon your shore

What if I don't find you when I have landed
Would you leave me here to die on your shores stranded?
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon

I say, "Dela, dela, ngiyadela
When I am with you
Dela, sondela mama sondela
I burn for you"

I've been waiting for you all my life, hoping for a miracle
I've been waiting day and night, day and night
I've been waiting for you all my life, waiting for redemption
I've been waiting day and night, I burn for you

The blind bird sings inside the cage that is my heart
The image of your face comes to me when I'm alone in the dark
If I could give a shape to this ache that I have for you
If I could find the voice that says the words that capture you

I think I know, I think I know
I think I know, I think I know
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon

I say, "Dela, dela, ngiyadela
When I am with you
Dela, sondela, mama sondela
I burn for you"

I've been waiting for you all my life, hoping for a miracle
I've been waiting day and night, day and night
I've been waiting for you all my life, waiting for redemption
I've been waiting day and night, I burn for you

Sondela, sondela, mama sondela
I burn for you

I've been waiting for you all my life, hoping for a miracle
I've been waiting day and night, day and night
I've been waiting for you all my life, waiting for redemption
I've been waiting day and night, I burn for you

Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
Burn for you, I burn for you
