Atlantis In Jou Lyf
Koos Kombuis - Atlantis In Jou Lyf
----------------------------------

D                Em                            A
Op 'n reis deur die woestyn verdwyn ons trane in die sand
                         D              G   A       D
Op die gravelpad na die see soek ek die unicorn se strand

D            Em                        G
Daars 'n roos in elke doring en'n leuen in elke feëverhaal
         A             D                  G    A       D
Hierdie oomblikke van waarheid glim soos neon deur my taal

Em             D             A            Em
Ek weet jy's hier iewers in die klei van Afrikaans
                         D            A                      Em
Maar ek ken nog nie jou naam nie, jy sing waar die flaminke dans

CHORUS: --------
          Em            D
Jy's die voodoo wat my vashou
          A                 Em
Jy's die vloek wat my laat skryf
                    G
Die Sahara's in jou oe
      A             D   G  A  D
En Atlantis in jou lyf
_______

D                Em                            A
Ek sien die buitelyne van jou skip, ek lees jou kaart so dof
Jy's 'n ruine tussen klip, 'n rivierbedding vol stof
Ek grawe kaalhand in die grond op soek na woorde en witblits
maar Vader Tyd se uurglas sak soos 'n deurkosyn in Luderitz
Al volg ek jou lugspieelings deur die rotsblokke van smart
val die reen steeds oor my pyn en is dit winter in my hart

CHORUS: --------
          Em            D
Jy's die voodoo wat my vashou
          A                 Em
Jy's die vloek wat my laat skryf
                    G
Die Sahara's in jou oe
      A             D   G  A  D
En Atlantis in jou lyf
_______

D                    Em                      A
Op reis deur die woestyn verdwyn ons trane in die mis
ons verruil ons laaste pyn vir wilde liefde op die ware kus
Ek volg jou spore deur die vure waar droee geraamtes lag
my drome flikker soos die vure van oases in die nag

CHORUS: --------
          Em            D
Jy's die voodoo wat my vashou
          A                 Em
Jy's die vloek wat my laat skryf
                    G
Die Sahara's in jou oe
      A             D   G  A  D
En Atlantis in jou lyf

About the artist behind Atlantis In Jou Lyf:

Koos Kombuis (born André le Roux du Toit, November 5, 1954) is a South African musician, singer, songwriter and writer who became famous as part of a group of anti-establishment maverick Afrikaans musicians, who, under the collective name of Voëlvry (directly translated meaning "Free as a bird"; in Afrikaans "voëlvry" is synonymous to the word "fugitive"), toured campuses across South Africa in the 1980s, to "liberate Afrikaans from the shackles of its past". Fellow musicians of this movement were Johannes Kerkorrel and Bernoldus Niemand (James Phillips).

They were a younger generation Afrikaner who didn't believe in apartheid and didn't toe the ruling National Party line. This movement coined the term Alternative Afrikaner for themselves. Kombuis is somewhat of an icon among certain South Africans who consider him the guru of Afrikaans rock music and father of non-conformist Afrikaans culture.
