DELA - I know why the dog howls at the moon

 

One day I looked up and there you stood

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 shores

But what if I don’t find you when I have landed

Would you leave me here to die on you 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

(Content, content I am content)

When I am with you !

Dela ! sondela mama

(Closer, closer, come closer mama)

I burn for you !”

 

Chorus:…

I’ve been waiting for you all my life - Waiting for a miracle

I’ve been waiting day and night - Waiting for redemption

I burn for you

 

A blind bird sings inside the cage that is my heart

And 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 why the dog howls at the moon

I say: “Dela ! dela ! ngiyadela

(Content, content I am content)

When I am with you !

Dela ! sondela mama

(Closer, closer, come closer mama)

I burn for you !”

 

Chorus
