I cry but I have so much to cry about
So much trouble in the world
We come from different homes,
Different backgrounds.

I cry seeing that our humanity is falling,
Our people struggling.
When is it going to end?
What is going on in this world?

I cry, knowing that our sisters are raped,
Knowing that our brothers are forced to hard labour,
Fathers abusing women and children.
Why? I ask myself.

Families poor,
Having major issues.
Heed my cry South Africa,
Heed my cry South Africa.

I cry for the love seeing it perish,
I find it hard to cherish.
Falling with a big clash
Its quite a big crash.
