It’s 5:00 am on Signal Hill when I open up my eyes 
A salty air is mixing with an unlit sky
Somewhere far off a strange bird calls
Sirens wail and then they’re gone
The music starts within my mind 

Love is alive today
Along the shores of Table Bay
We’re sailing away from yesterday
Those islands we left in the past
Our colors fly high on the mast
Setting a course for tomorrow

Cycles, men and cars join chorus on the road below
Coffee bars open their doors to Cape Town’s watery glow
Freighters crawl out into the grey
Seagulls wave to the ships at sea
The words rise-up within my soul

The spirits cry out from Robben Island 
Voices of wisdom ring
The spirits fly out from Robben Island
Voices of freedom sing
Freedom’s alive today 
Listen to what I say
Freedom’s alive

Wheels on the waterfront splash by the rain drenched crowd
Tourists laugh and swirl into a maddening cloud 
Locals smile then slide on by
Merchants look for their daily bread  
The sound of life I strain to hear

Love is alive today
Along the shores of Table Bay
We’re sailing away from yesterday
Those islands we left in the past
Our colors fly high on the mast
Setting a course for tomorrow

A proud lion watches from the mountain above
Horizons of the earth float in the sun like a dove
High on the wind people drift down
White cars roam like sheep below
The melody blows me away

Love is alive today
Along the shores of Table Bay
We’re sailing away from yesterday
Those islands we left in the past
Our colors fly high on the mast
Setting a course for tomorrow

Love is alive today
Along the shores of Table Bay
We’re sailing away from yesterday
Those islands we left in the past
Our colors fly high on the mast
Setting a course for tomorrow
