Shadowland - Performed by Heather Headley

Fatshe leso lea halalela [The land of our ancestors is holy]
Fatshe leso lea halalela

Shadowland
The leaves have fallen
This shadowed land
This was our home

The river's dry
The ground has broken
So I must go
Now I must go

And where the journey may lead me
Let your prayers be my guide
I cannot stay here, my family
But I'll remember my pride

Prideland
I have no choice
My land
I will find my way
Tear-stained
Lea halalela
Dry land
Take this
Take this prayer
What lies out there
With you
Fatshe leso

And where the journey may lead you
Let this prayer be your guide
Though it may take you so far away
Always remember your pride

Fatshe leso lea halalela
Fatshe leso lea halalela

And where the journey may lead you
Let this prayer be your guide
Though it may take you so far away
Always remember your pride

Giza buyabo, giza buyabo
And where the journey may lead you
Let this prayer be your guide I will return,
I will return
Beso bo Giza buyabo,
Though it may take you so far away
I will return
Always remember your buyabo
Oh giza buyabo
Beso bo, my people, beso bo
