On October 14th, 2018, Koolulam partnered with King David Schools, Johannesburg, and gathered 3,500 South Africans to celebrate the 70th anniversary of King David Schools and the of establishment of the State of Israel. Within 45 minutes, they learned a new arrangement of OneRepublic’s “I Lived.”

“I Lived” – Lyrics

[The video includes lyrics in English and Zulu. Below are the original lyrics of the song.]

I’d like to teach the world to sing

Hope when you take that jump
You don’t fear the fall
Hope when the water rises
You built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out
They’re screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love
And it hurts so bad (Yeah)
The only way you can know
You gave it all you had
And I hope that you don’t suffer
But take the pain
Hope when the moment comes,
You’ll say

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
Yeah with every broken bone
I swear I lived

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

Hope that you spend your days
But they all add up
And when that sun goes down
Hope you raise your cup
I wish that I could witness
All your joy and all your pain
But until my moment comes
I’ll say

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
Yeah with every broken bone
I swear I lived

I’d like to teach the world to sing

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

With every broken bone
I swear I lived
With every broken bone
I swear I

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
A song of peace that echoes on
And never goes away

I’d like to teach the world to sing
