your time will come lyrics – johnny clegg

waqamb’ amanga mus’ ukuqamb’ amanga
[you were lying, do not tell lies]
wangi qambela amanga ufuna ukungilahlisa
ithemba lami wemame!
[you told lies, trying to mislead me,
so that i would give up my faith and hope.]
washo njalo! wathi ikusasa lethu
selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[that is what you said — you said that our future is hopeless,
our tomorrow is bleak, you were lying,
trying to mislead us]
ngeke sivuma — ngeke silahla itemba
[no can do! we will never relinquish our faith]

chorus:
kuzulonga ukuthi nini? asazi!
[everything will be all right —
it’s just when this will be, we cannot know]
kuzolonga wena ‘mngane wami
[everything will come right, i tell you friend]]
masuku lahla ithemba lakho
[do not throw away your hope]
mina ngapha wena ngapha sizoyi bamba
[me holding on one side, you holding on the other side
together we will pull through]
thina nawe, thina nawe
[you and me, you and me]

umoya wami onakele
[my spirits are down]
wena wemtaka antie hawu wangi shayisa uvalo
[i say to you child of my aunt, you have caused me great fear]
washo njalo! wathi ikusasa lethu
selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[you told lies, trying to mislead me,
so that i would give up my faith and hope.]
washo njalo! wathi ikusasa lethu
selimnyama hawu wasi qambela amanga
[that is what you said — you said that our future is hopeless,
our tomorrow is bleak, you were lying,
trying to mislead us]
ngeke sivuma — ngeke silahla itemba
[no can do! we will never relinquish our faith]

chorus:
kuzulonga ukuthi nini? asazi!
[everything will be all right —
it’s just when this will be, we cannot know]
kuzolonga wena ‘mngane wami
[everything will come right, i tell you friend]

kuzolonga ‘mngane wami ngiyakutshela
[it will be all right my friend, i’m telling you]
woza wesibindi! uyaphilisa uyabulala
[come true courage, for it is you who gives
life and takes it away
mina ngapha — wena ngapha sizoyibamba
[me on this side, you on the other,
we will hold it together]
ungalalleli law’ amanga ‘mngane wami
[don’t listen to the lies of my compatriot]
oh sizobahlula thina nawa
[we will be victorious in the end, just you and me]
oh thina nama
[just you and me]

i saw the berlin wall fall
i saw mandela walk free
i saw a dream whose time has come
change my history — so keep on dreaming

deam on dreamer, dreamer

in the bst of times and in the worst of times
gotta keep looking at the skyline
not at a hole in the road
your time will come, sister, your time will come
n*body’s gonna rush history, we have to ease it along
— just ease it along
