It’s hard to compete with the sound of the surf, but if you wear headphones you should be able to hear my voice above the oceanic roar. If not, I’ve included the lyrics in the video description!

I filmed this at Buffalo Bay in Knysna, whilst staying there for the weekend in celebration of a friend’s birthday and our fifth wedding anniversary. I thought it was quite an apt setting, given the lyrics! (P.S. My iPhone cut out towards the end of filming, hence the fadeout!)

I can’t believe it’s been nine years since I wrote this song. I was staying at my aunt and uncle’s house in London during the Easter holiday, and penned it whilst sitting at their kitchen table. I was fifteen years old at the time, and had no idea that the song would one day receive radio play in three different countries and be play-listed on two of South Africa’s most popular stations! So kids, keep creating things that you’re passionate about, because a) it’s good for the soul, and b) you never know where those creations will take you.

Video 14 of 30: 60 Seconds (Original Song)

This is another song from my album, Atlases & Astronauts. I wrote it in 2008 for my then-boyfriend-now-husband. Hope you enjoy it!

“60 Seconds”

Sixty seconds go quicker than the last
Years seem to fly by so fast
You wonder where all the time went to
Why the future keeps creeping up on you

You say you’re tired of trying, that it’s gotten you nowhere
Say you don’t know how to move forward now

CHORUS:
And I wish I could give you everything
Make you laugh again
But I only have words that my comfort you
I hope they’ll do
I hope they’ll do.

You’re working hard, there’s no time for play
Tomorrow will soon be yesterday
And you grab ahold, but you say it just slips through your hands
Like the finest sand

And the sky just gets higher, the more that you reach
But the clouds hang low, they don’t seem to go

CHORUS

Video 13 of 30: Just Sleeping (Original)

Read about the 30 Days of Videos challenge here.

This song is the fourth track on my album, Atlases & Astronauts. I wrote it for a close friend of mine who sadly passed away at a young age. It was my way of working through some unresolved grief.

“Just Sleeping”

All rise to sing a song that brings comfort to us all
But I feel the cold coming from these four walls
And people talk, they say that you are not that far
But how can they claim to know where you are?

CHORUS:
So tell me you’re awake
Or tell me you’re just sleeping now
Sit up and break the silence somehow

Your little sister, she gets more beautiful each day
You’d be so proud if you were here today
And I often think that I should have been the one
But I guess God knows when we’ve had our run

CHORUS

It’s almost February, and then I’ll say,
“Happy birthday, you’d be twenty today”

CHORUS
