Tough Enough Lyrics

LOMHLABA UNZIMA, LOMHLABA
[this world is a harsh place, this world]
Picture the end of a cycle
here's the fire from heaven
There's a tired planeet closing down
no more news at eleven
somewhere the last of a species has died
somewhere a child is born
when I hold you, I tremble inside
can we ride out the storm?
Are you tough enough -- can you take the strain?
Are you tough enough -- to walk in the burning rain
Are you tough enough -- can you take the change?
Are you tough enough -- baby just say!
Chorus:
Into the heart of the human dream
into a strange new world
remember me under the Tree of Man
where I first heard your words
gonna make it through, I can feel it
What we need is a miracle
what we need is some time
what we need is an angel of Mercy
in this life
Are you tough enough -- can you take the heat?
Are you tough enough -- to walk in the burning street
Are you tough enough -- can you take the change
Are you tough enough -- baby just say!
Chorus...
There's your mama and your papa
waving good-bye in the cold moonlight
in their eyes the confusion of a world gone by
and you hold me tightly as we step out
into the morning light
and I know you are thinking that for something to be born
somthing has to die.
Chorus...
Vele vele we mama kunjalo
[It is true, it's obvious. Mama, it is just as you say].
