when I’m far away ~ home is how you sing my name ~ on a rainy day

Come closer

take a closer look ~ colours, textures, emotions ~ often unnoticed

What’s left of Rooipoort

here you went to school ~ here you made a love promise ~ a lifetime ago

What’s left

maybe you went home ~ maybe you went somewhere else ~ but some of you stayed

Song sung blue

then you sang to me ~ that old rocking melody ~ about hard times past

For our children

if I could catch stars ~ I would give them all to you ~ for your tomorrow
