QADASI – David Jenkins

Ngiyakhumbula

Ngiyakhumbula
Music & Lyrics by David Jenkins

On a cold and rainy day I made my way down to the basement.
Came across an old foot locker bound in dust and cobwebs
I opened it up and found a box of faded images
And in an instant I was taken back to a simple time of innocence

Chorus
Take me back to a time so dear
When the honey was sweet and the sky was clear
Take me back to a time long gone
When the clock seemed still and our worries were young

Ngiyakhumbula, ngiyakhumbula
(I remember…)
Ngiyakhumbula, ngiyakhumbula
(I remember…)

I sat there gazing deeply, daydreaming, reminiscing
Oh these fast moving times, places, faces changing daily
I’m proud of who I am, what I’ve become and where I’m going
But when the times get rough, those simple days are ever welcoming

Chorus
Take me back to a time so dear
When the honey was sweet and the sky was clear
Take me back to a time long gone
When the clock seemed still and our worries were young

Ngiyakhumbula, ngiyakhumbula
(I remember…)
Ngiyakhumbula, ngiyakhumbula
(I remember…)

Bridge
Take me back to a time so dear
When the honey was sweet and the sky was clear
Take me back to a time long gone
When the clock seemed still and our worries were young
