Bastille Durban Skies Lyrics

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

In this town, it all went down

Our chromosomes in sepia tones

In my mind, in my mind

Where you led 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

On the day you made your vows

The heaven’s opened, rain poured down

It poured down

Down, down

Grey and brown, the seventies

The suits you wore, and the ones you loved

Were so young, were so young,

God, you were so young

[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

Oh, all that I’ve got to be thankful for

All that I’ve got to be thankful for

[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

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
