  • [Intro]
    All that I've got to be thankful for
    All that I've got to be thankful for
    In the heat, try to love these streets

    [Verse 1]
    In this town, it all went down
    Our chromosomes in sepia tones
    In my mind, in my mind

    [Verse 2]
    Where you lead your lives
    Before from our small island
    Brought right back to these shores
    To these shores, to these shores

    [Chorus]
    It’s alive, It’s alive
    When I see it through your eyes
    It’s alive, It’s alive
    Now I understand your lives
    When you take me there
    You show me the city
    I see it through your eyes
    When you take me there
    We drive through the city
    Beneath the Durban Skies

    Oh oh oh
    All that I've got to be thankful for

    [Verse 3]
    On the day you made your vows
    The heaven’s opened, rain poured down
    It poured down
    Down, down

    [Verse 4]
    Grey and brown, the seventies
    It suits you wore, and the ones you loved
    Were so young, were so young
    Lord, you were so young

    [Chorus]

    Oh oh oh
    All that I've got to be thankful for
    Oh, all that I've got to be thankful for
    All that I've got to be thankful for

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    When you take me there, ooh
    When you take me there
    It’s alive, It’s alive

    When you take me there
    It's alive, It's alive
