Oh no, you've gone again
I feel like Daniel in the lion's den
Stone cold in the afternoon
So alone in the empty room
They say that four walls do not a prison make
I'm trying to find a way out but there seems no escape
When I feel the hidden power that lies inside your sound
Like the ghost inside the atom that spins it round and round
There's magic in some words, some things you can't explain
That conjures up that feeling of the sun inside the rain

[Chorus]
When the wind is blowing like a lonesome train
I reach out and touch you and I call your name
When the night is lonely and I fear the coming day
I reach out and touch you
And I call your name -- ngibiza igama lakho

Oh no, don't let the sun go down
I'm so low, I feel underground
There's no easy road and no easy way
To say the things I have to say
'Cause I know that time is a distance and distance is a space
I've come so far to find you, it's you I can't replace
When I feel the hidden power that lies inside your sound
Like the ghost inside the atom that spins it round and round
There's magic in some words some things you can't explain
That conjures up that feeling of the sun inside the rain

[Chorus]
