Lyrics
Ngibambele Duze Kumakaza
Ngibambele Duze Kumakaza
Ngibambele Duze Kumakaza
Ngibambele Duze Kumakaza

Oh, you're born alone and die the same
In between can take a while
Only one drop in the sea of time
Sometimes makes it hard to smile

If you find someone to share your life
Things are never quite the same
Years we have traveled seem like days gone past
And we've known so little pain

At this point in time I stand alone
To the phone I'm holding on
Outside people stare as if to say
We know there's nobody home

Hold me when you're lonely
Hold me when you're lonely

When the papers read that all is lost
Only darkness lies ahead
I'll speak softly and soothe and chase the fear
And on me you rest your head

When the nights are hot with heavy air
Or it's freezing to the bone
You may lie drunk in the city square
You may feel lost and forlorn

Hold me when you're lonely
Hold me when you're lonely
