Rain falling like a symphony
On the rooftop of my heart
There's a movement in the whispering deep
Before the new dream starts

I see your eyes shining like a neon light
Smilin' in the dark
Ooh, what made you so strong?
What made you so strong?

I've seen you dealing in the marketplace
You buy political regrets
And you've been walking on the water again
But your feet never ever get wet
You just say

Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
What made you so strong?

I light a candle for the innocent ones
A candle for our love
I say a prayer for peace on Earth
For the daughters and the sons

And your life is like a cheap street fight
And you're laughing in the dark
Ooh, what made you so strong?
Ooh, what made you so strong?

I've been waiting all my life for this
To see how the deal goes down
There's an AK-47 on the dashboard
You know, mercy's left town
And you just say

Afrika kukhala abangcwele (that's the way it is)
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
What makes you so strong?

Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele

Afrika kukhala abangcwele (that's the way it is)
Afrika kukhala abangcwele (what makes you so strong?)
Afrika kukhala abangcwele (oh)
Afrika kukhala abangcwele
Afrika kukhala abangcwele (that's the way it is, that's the way it is)
Afrika kukhala abangcwele (you know that's the way it is)
