Paroles Africa Rising

Le - Par .

Keep this for protection
Deep in your heart
It's the Kalahari blowing
Under a southern star

There's a new day coming
I feel it in my bones
Africa Rising
From blood on the stones

I feel the wind in my sails
I know I can flyI'm going to break these chains
Under a blood red sky

I said Hey La
I said Helele
I said Hey La
I said Hala

Isoka lapha wena ukhatizwe

Good young people
Born to bad times
Where the prophjets have failed
And the river runs dry
There's a new day coming
Across the divide
Africa Rising
Against yesterday's tide

I see the young are strong
And their dreams are proud
Their hearts are on fire
Where silence once stood

I said Hey La
I said Helele
I said Hey La
I said Hala

Suka lapha wena weqath'izwe
(Leave this place, you who incited the nations to fight)
Baleka wena
