Wikipedia:Jonathan (Johnny) Clegg, born 7 June 1953 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England, is a musician from South Africa, who has recorded and performed with his bands Juluka and Savuka. Sometimes called Le Zoulou Blanc ("The White Zulu"), he is an important figure in South African popular music history, with songs that mix Zulu with English lyrics, and African with various Western European (such as Celtic) music styles.

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 when I have landed
Would you leave me here to die on your 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 sondela!
(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 -- day and night
I've been waiting for you all my life -- waiting for redemption
I've been waiting day and night -- 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 sondela!
(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 -- day and night
I've been waiting for you all my life -- waiting for redemption
I've been waiting day and night -- I burn for you
