    Lyrics:

    Oooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehh

    You're a good soldier
    Choosing your battles
    Pick yourself up
    And dust yourself off
    Get back in the saddle

    You're on the front line
    Everyone's watching
    You know it's serious
    We're getting closer
    This isn't over

    The pressure's on
    You feel it
    But you got it all
    Believe it

    When you fall get up, oh oh
    If you fall get up, eh eh
    Tsamina mina zangalewa
    'Cause this is Africa

    Freshly Ground from South Africa.

    Lyrics:
    Did you hear the news on the radio today?
    People have agreed to give their love away
    I can't wait to be there in line!
    Politicians have agreed to honour and obey
    They'll come down and listen to what the people say
    I can't wait to be there in line, no no!
    Children will play in the streets
    Loving everyone they meet
    Open hearts will be the rhythm of the day
    Neighbours will greet each other
    Sisters and the brothers
    Even enemies will come to be friends
    I can't wait to be there in line
    If you are ready
    Feel free to come around
    If you are ready
    Vem ca amigo, irei levar-te la
    If you are ready...
    Say you want to live and grow in kindness every day
    Say you know the meaning of love
    See every person that you meet
    As every you and every me
    And then I'll know you feel the rhythm of love!
    I can't wait to be there in line, no no!

    This is the latest single off our 7th album CANT STOP! We collaborated with one of our favourite South African groups The Soil. This song #MnaNalamagenge literally means “Me and the Gang” and it's about those friends who stick by you through thick and thin! That crew whose bond is thicker than water! The ones whom you can depend on with your life and whose lives you are willing to fight for come what may. We had so much fun shooting this music video in Cape Town and we hope you can feel the good vibes between us and The Soil and we REALLY hope you’ll get down to our brand new work! Enjoy it with all our #lovenohate!

    Freshlyground's music video for the single Don't Leave Me

    Video directed by Benitha Vlok and Michael Matthews
    Produced by Go Trolley Films,

    Freshlyground - Don't Leave Me lyrics:

    five fingers told and I am 60 yrs old when i meet you
    meet you outside a hall somewhere in the greater world
    what’s a nice thing like you doing in a place like this
    you sigh cos you’ve heard something similar before I stood
    in front of you eyes falling out of my skull
    I ask you your name and you say don’t you know by now

    don’t you know by now?
    don’t leave me on my own..
    or am i better off alone?

    these eyes have seen – oh the skin has it’s stories -there’ve been
    many like you and none at all and it’s cold and i think
    “how adorable to see you sigh like a child who’s treat is already late”
    take this hand here and let’s be tumbling far from this everyday the same
    using the stars let us climb the sky and to the places kept secret be where we
    never would have been

    but it’s coming
    it’s coming
    don’t leave me on my own… or am i better off alone

    (don’t hesitate too long –
    my heart might show itself to be
    the bird in lights trapped in a terrible moment
    if you retract your fingers I’m afraid I will fall and I will drown)
    but it’s coming
    it’s coming
    don’t leave me on my own
    (or am I better off alone?)

    I'd Like Freshly Ground Music Video


    I'd like
    What would you do if I kissed you?
    What would you do if I held your hand and laid you down?
    Would you find me overly unkind to you?
    Would you call me insensitive, and say that I deserve to die?
    What do I do with all these feelings tearing me up inside?
    What do I do with all these wasted hours dreaming of you at night?
    I' d like to call you sometime...
    What would you do if you knew the truth?
    What would you do if I told you the story of my life?
    Would you find me overly familiar towards you?
    Would you call me crude, fling me aside to the birds?
    What do I do with all these feelings holding me back inside?
    What do I do with all these wasted hours dreaming of you at night?
    I'd like to call you sometime
    I'd like you to need me one time
    I'd like to call you sometime
    What would you do if I kissed you?
    What would you do if I held your hand and laid you down?
    Would you recognize it's a need I've been fighting for so long?
    Would you recognize it's a hunger only you can fill?
    What do I do with all these feelings warming me up inside?
    What do I do with all these glorious hours dreaming of you at night?
    I'd like to call you sometime
    I'd like you to need me one time
    I'd like to have you all the time
    I'd like to call you

  • Freshlyground & ZANEWS - Chicken to Change

    4:05

    This music video was produced in 2010 (!), a collaboration between the South African band Freshlyground and ZANEWS, South Africa's award-winning web and tv satirical puppet news show.
    The song 'Chicken to Change' is from the band's album 'Radio Africa'.

    Here are the full lyrics of the song:

    i remember a time when you were noble
    conqueror
    a supernova

    so resplendent!
    out of this world, you were shiny as a revelation!

    we makorokoto utshintsha ma kutheni? 
    (oh Congratulations, when will you ever change?)

    you are chicken to change!
    you are chicken to change!

    tshintsha!
    (change!)

    now 
    and ever
    be one with our beauty
    shine for all the world over
    an iridescent example of honour for the coming generation

    we makorokoto utshintsha ma kutheni?

    you are too chicken to change!

    ye phithi phithi ingqondo yakho?
    le tyibiliki ithongo lakho?
    korokoto wasoloko wathembisa ukusivulela amasango
    kodwa nguwe olala nesitshixo
    (did you lose sight of the visions in your head?
    did you lose grip of the dreams that you once held? 
    you promised always to open the doors for us
    indeed it is you and only you who sleeps with the key)

    you are chicken to change!

    tshintsha!

    Nasi isandla, ndicel’ undiphe

    Here is a head, the mind is dead
    Governor, look me in the eye
    See I am a human too
    Beware mama! The school is burnt to the ground!
    End of knowledge! Church is out
    Oh most Powerful baptise me with fire; make me holy too)

    I have fallen, will I awaken?
    I’m a mess and you tell me I’m faking
    God alone She knows I have tried very hard
    Burn it all to the ground
    Leave it bleeding
    Poisoning all the people you’re leading
    God alone She knows I have tried very hard

    Emergency
    Insecurity
    No Opportunity

    It’s just another day in the Banana Republic

    All your people dying in freedom
    Suffering a profound lack of leading
    Are you even there when we call? Are you a human, man?
    Full of lies! Can’t believe what I’m hearing
    From your lips a river of scheming
    Poisoning all the water we’re drinking
    Are we good to go?

    Emergency

    No opportunity

    It’s just another day in the Banana Republic

    State of emergency!!!!
