Not like this
You can't leave me hanging
What about the questions I still have for you
Who will answer them?
Just like that
You taking your secret with you to the grave
You can't go mama
Who will take care of me?
And raise me well
What will I be without you?
You can't go my child
You leaving me all alone
As if I was a barren woman
You can't go my sister
Who will irritate me and get on my last nerve
You can't go my brother
Who will fight for me?
You can't go daddy
Who will be my hero?
And who will put the bread on the table
You can't go teacher
Who's going to give me wisdom
You can't go pastor
Who going to show me the way to salvation
You can't go neighbour
Whom I'm I gona share my latest gossip with
You can't go my love
You is going to love me
Whom I'm I going spend the rest of my life with
Don't go my friend
Whom will I share my ice cream with?
And whom I'm I gona tell my secrets
Stay with me for a while
There's still a lot you need to do
If you go
Who will play your role?
What are we suppose to do without you
Who is gona fill your gab
Uthi benzeni bona ngaphandle kwakho
We will break without you
There never a good time to say good bye or to let go of those you love
There's a season for everything
Time to smile and time to mourn
Time to be born and time to die
Yonke into inesiphetho
Just like luther
I wish I can get another chance, another walk, another dance
And I will play a song that will never ever end
Just to be with you one more time
Dedicated to all those who lost their loved ones
