Nhliziyo Yami (My heart)

Palesa Fortunate Sehloho 1998 (Johannesburg)


Ungi phoxile futhi
Kanti ufuna kuze kube njani?
Ufuna uze uyeke uku phila?
Ungi phoxile futhi

Uku khathazeka kwami akwe nelisi?
Ubuhlungu obuzwayo awubu deli yini?
Kanti ufuna kuze kube njani?

Sala sewu yeka phela ngi khathele
Sala sewu yeka phela uyangi limaza
Xola sekwanele manje
Xola sesi fikile iskhathi
