Your Very Own Heart

Why was I born on this earth?
Who measures my self-worth?
What should I do with my life?
How do I deal with my strife?

Voices outside have their say
Most advocate iron or clay
Truth lies somewhere between
The final voice lives in me

If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
You’ll find a pot of gold in your very own heart
If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
Gold will start to flow from your very own heart

I’ve got something to give
Surprising reason to live
Something to add to the world
Life, wonders, love to be hold

If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
You’ll find a pot of gold in your very own heart
If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
Gold will start to flow from your very own heart

Billions of tiles mosaic
Beautiful live work of art
Each only shines with one life
Solely be found in our hearts

Do what I love what I do
Journey deep down in side
Heart’s treasure swells like a tide
Love what I do what I love
Love what I do what I love

If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
You’ll find a pot of gold in your very own heart
If you chase the right rainbow, my friend
Gold will start to flow from your very own heart

My Favourite Female

Holding on, letting go
Say goodbye, say hello
Do it fast and do it slow
Some you hide and some you show

Getting high, getting low
Let the sun shine let it snow
Now you stay and then you go
How do you do I’m John Doe

You’re my favourite female, dear

You say meh, I say whoa
You read sci-fi I read Poe
Extraordinary status quo
When you’re speechless then you know

Then it’s dead, then it grows
Stand on one leg, touch your nose
Do you feel like going home?
Christmas time, ho-ho-ho

Monday morning, cuppa joe
Tuesday PM, cheap merlot
Brand new thoughts are embryos
Love me tender, I’m John Doe

You’re my favourite female, dear

You say meh, I say whoa
You read sci-fi I read Poe
Extraordinary status quo
When you’re speechless then you know

You’re my favourite female, dear
Hooray! I’m stopping at the one!
Play with me this game – I’ll be myself
Tada, a sing-song way to fun
For thee, I’ll drink a dram of dread
For thee, I’ll drink a dram of dread!

You say meh, I say whoa
You read sci-fi I read Poe
Extraordinary status quo
When you’re speechless then you know

Holdin on letting go, say goodbye say hello
A very good day to you, I’m John Doe

My True Selfie

Good morning to you, my friend
So nice to feel your face
My star fell from a dream last night
Brought me right back to this place

My favourite blue dove awoke me
Singing from our tree
Suddenly the horizon flamed
Cracked red to the east

The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Preparing my day’s feast

Good morning to you, dear stranger
How will you be named?
Let’s journey for a mile together
Then the coffee came

Good afternoon, my fellow traveler
Our feet kiss Mother Earth
I hope the gifts we give back to her
Are more than two cents worth

Good evening, my true companion
Let’s rest my weary life
I look back on my road well traveled
A smile cracks my old face

The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Concluding my day’s feast

Good night and good luck my friend
My dream is now complete
Take wine and bread from my story table
I close my eyes and see

Good night and good luck my friend
My dream is now complete
Take wine and bread from my story table
I close my eyes and see
Close my eyes and see
Close my eyes and see
Yesterday had been so bitter-sweet
Yes, today has been so bitter-sweet

My dream is dancing through the trees
My dream is dancing through the trees
My dream is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Concluding my day’s feast
Preparing some other’s feast
Preparing some other’s feast

I Love You So

I love you so
I need to know
Do you want me?
Do you know you?

I love you so
I wonder if you see me
I need to know
Do you even know my name?

Do you want me as I know you?
Am I neither friend nor foe?
Do you know you as I know me?
My love, I love you so

I Love You So

Tell me what if
Tell me what if
Tell me what if

Tell me what if my life is quite okay?
Many golden moments, moments everyday
Tell me what if your smile brings on the sun?
Sit down, hold my hand, I hope that you’re the one
Sit down, hold my hand, I hope that you’re the one

Let me take in all of this!
Let’s play hide and seek
Let’s keep dancing cha-cha-cha
Let’s make up songs la-la-la
Let’s live our story
Once Upon A Time

Tell me what if I love you like a rose
All the pain and thorny pleasure juxtaposed
Tell me what if we tango many years
Grow wings on our way down, fall into our fears
Grow wings on our way down, fall into our fears

Let me take in all of this!
Let’s play hide and seek
Let’s keep dancing cha-cha-cha
Let’s make up songs la-la-la
Let’s live our story
Once Upon A Time
Once Upon A Time

Sit down, hold my hand
Your smile brings on the sun
Sit down, hold my hand
I know that you’re the one!
Your smile brings on the
Tell me what if
Tell me what if
Tell me what if

Let me take in all of this!
Let’s play hide and seek
Let’s keep dancing cha-cha-cha
Let’s make up songs la-la-la
Let’s live our story

The Same Sun

You work the checkout down at the store
Smile and swipe my credit card
How much hurt lives in your heart?
How much hurt lives in your heart?
You keep walking through joy and sorrow
You keep walking through joy and sorrow

Your overalls are smelling like work
Your grease-stained hands are your church
What do you do with all your pain?
What do you do with all your pain?
You keep cycling through rain and sunshine
You keep cycling through rain and sunshine

The same sun
shines down on all of us
The same sun
enlightens all of us

South Africa is all of us!
Pour the coffee let’s walk this road
Every breath is a miracle
Create a country where all can live
Forget my skin look into my eyes

You wash the floors inside the house
Very far away you call home
Are there smiles on their faces?
Are there smiles on their faces?
What will then become of the children?
What will then become of the children?

You were burning at the four-way stop
Your poster said your food had run out
Now you wheel your trolley up and down the hills
Collecting cans and trash in exchange for your meals
Recycling eyes can dance once more
Recycled eyes can dance and adore

The same sun
shines down on all of us
The same sun
enlightens all of us

South Africa is all of us!
Pour the coffee let’s walk this road
Every breath is a miracle
Create a country where all can live
Forget my skin look into my eyes

South Africa is all of us
Create a country where all can live
South Africa is all of us
Build a planet where all can be
free

What Can I Say?

What can I say?
Good and bad will come my way
What can I say?
I will love you any day
I will love you any day

What can I say?
Good and bad will come my way
What can I say?
I will love you any day
What can I say?
Sunny skies and rainy days
What can I say?
Flower faces smile away
Flower faces fade away
Flower faces fade away

This is what I think I’d like to say
This is what I think I’d like to say
I believe in life
Time is ticking by!
This is what I think I’d like to say
This is what I think I’d like to say
I do love you so
Won’t you please say yes to this adventure with me?

What can I say?
Falling leaves and noon delight
What can I say?
Little snow and sweetest wine
What can I say?
Peachy blossoms greening trees
What can I say?
Lemon ice cream, brain freeze
Lemon ice cream, brain freeze
Lemon ice cream, brain freeze

This is what I think I’d like to say
This is what I think I’d like to say
I believe in life
Time is ticking by!
This is what I think I’d like to say
This is what I think I’d like to say
I do love you so
Won’t you please say yes to this adventure with me?

See how the sunflowers turn their faces to the sun
See how the sunflowers smile and wish that they could run
See how the sunflowers turn their faces to the sun
See how the sunflowers smile and break into a run
Smile and break into a run
Turn their faces
See how the sunflowers turn their faces to the sun

What can I say?
Good and bad will come my way
What can I say?
I will love you any day
What can I say?
Sunny skies and rainy days
What can I say?
Flower faces smile away
Flower faces fade away
Flower faces fade away

Sometimes We Are One

We’re walking in dust, we’re dancing in rain
I’m crying in joy, you’re laughing through pain
I’m shouting in silence, you whisper out loud
We’re standing alone in the middle of a crowd
We’re standing alone in the middle of a crowd

I need myself and I need you
Sometimes I’m red, sometimes I am blue
I need myself and I need you
Sometimes we are one and
sometimes we are two
Ke kgomo ya moshate

The light of today and the never-dark of night
When nothing is left, we know exactly what is right
Sometimes I am grounded and sometimes I take flight
I see heaven’s door in the yellow of my kite
I see heaven’s door in the yellow of my kite

Oh, being close to me is impossible
Far away from you even more so
Life between extremes
Life between extremes

I need myself and I need you
Sometimes I’m red, sometimes I am blue
I need myself and I need you
Sometimes we are one and
sometimes we are two
Ke kgomo ya moshate

We savour every moment, we crave tomorrow
We sit down next to happiness, we run away from sorrow
I feel the coolness of your hand on my face
Let us let go of our problems and slow this human race
Let us let go of our problems and slow this human race

I need myself and I need you
Sometimes I’m red, sometimes I am blue
I need myself and I need you
Sometimes we are one and
sometimes we are two
Ke kgomo ya moshate

We’re running with the big dogs, take pictures of our cats
We read children stories and try out different hats
I taste a snowflake on the tip of my tongue
I listen to your laughter, it will stay forever young
I look into your eyes, they will stay forever young

Oh, living close to me is impossible
Far away from you even more so
Life between extremes
Life between extremes

I need myself and I need you
Sometimes I’m red, sometimes I am blue
I need myself and I need you
Sometimes we are one and
sometimes we are two
Ke kgomo ya moshate

The Wind Is Dancing

Good morning to you, my friend
So nice to feel your face
My star fell from a dream last night
Brought me right back to this place
To this place

The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Preparing my day’s feast

Good morning to you, dear stranger
How will you be named?
Let’s journey for a mile together
Then the coffee came

Good afternoon, my fellow traveler
Our feet kiss Mother Earth
I hope the gifts we give back to her
Are more than two cents worth

Good evening, my true companion
Let’s rest my weary life
I look back on my road well traveled
A smile cracks my old face
My old face

The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
The wind is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Concluding my day’s feast

Good night and good luck my friend
My dream is now complete
Take wine and bread from my story table

Close my eyes and see
Close my eyes and see

Yesterday had been so bitter-sweet
Yes, today has been so bitter-sweet

My dream is dancing through the trees
My dream is dancing through the trees
My dream is dancing through the trees
Preparing my day’s feast
Concluding my day’s feast
Preparing some other’s feast
Preparing some other’s feast

Dark Madonna

Concrete jungle
The sun is rising over

Dark Madonna and bright brown-eyed baby
Are working the sandstone corner of Zastron Street
You ask of me exactly two Rand ten
I open my hand for blue seven sweets

Your faded, wobbly, light-green gazebo
Baby princess sits in yellow chair
My daughter owns exactly the same seat
Is the sandstone street corner your school of life?

It makes no sense, for me to give you change
‘Cause change, my dear, change is all you’ve got
I sure hope these few blue notes of mine
May help, even if they do not help a lot
May help, even if they only help me some

Waiting for some hungry travelers
Waiting for some weary travelers
To drop by so you and her may share
To drop by so you and her may share
I’m smelling your secret recipe chicken
Flowing from your aluminium pot
Your table with scattered sweets & loose cigarettes
You and I, we share this little thing
neither of us know what we
will be eating tonight

I walk away and look back at the corner baby
She waves at me like Queen Elizabeth
Her head turns back, looks up to Zastron Street
Some travelers are waiting for
your light to turn green

It makes no sense, for me to give you change
‘Cause change, my dear, change is all you’ve got
I sure hope these few blue notes of mine
May help, even if they do not help a lot
May help, even if they only help me some

Waiting for some hungry travelers
Waiting for some weary travelers
To drop by so you and her may share
To drop by so you and her may share

Dark Madonna and bright, brown-eyed baby
Are walking hand in hand down Zastron street
The sun is slowly, slowly setting
Night wraps her arms around the concrete jungle
Dark Madonna and bright, brown-eyed baby
Are swallowed by the smoky, starry night
Here is hoping the sun will rise tomorrow
Here he’s hoping the sun will rise
