about

A sizzling synth/pop/rock roller-coaster ride, celebrating the transformative power of LOVE. In-your-face romantic realism served up with growling synths, a chest pounding groove, Mthakathi’s signature African drum beds, a fiery guitar ride and an infectious, soul-stirring chorus.

lyrics

"i like taking the train in" she said...feels like you're going somewhere
and i knew what she meant
rough sledding makes you think of better times
and currencies you haven't spent
remember the apartment in Xi'an...all the warriors under the bed
it was such a hilarious sight
and as the ass-end of Paterson scrolled by the window, she held my hand and I knew
everything was gonna be all right

COME ON!

love love, you can never have too much of it
love love, cause it's never enough
love love, but if you stay within the touch of it
it lifts you up and carries you high above

a hysterical little man bounces off the inner walls of my skull
as i survey an uninterested room
i'd say that it was kafka-esque but they probably wouldn't fucking get it,
the frequencies aren't in tune
i remember the cheers in Grahamstown, the roar of the crowd in Tlalpan
its a bittersweet thirst
then she gets in my face and says "remember this is only temporary"
and i just know my heart's gonna burst

LOOK OUT!

love love, you can never have too much of it
love love, because it's never enough
love love, but if you stay within the touch of it
it lifts you up and carries you high above

now i know what it's like to scream into the canyon and wait for the echo
that never arrives
and i know what its like to trip every wire stretched across my path
and still be alive
yeah i know what it’s like to pour out all the paint and have the canvas still be invisible
and wonder what did i miss
yeah but I know the spice and the spark, the jasmine and fire, can all come from
one little kiss

KISS ME!!!

love love, you can never have too much of it
love love, because it's never enough
love love, but if you live within the touch of it
it lifts you up and carries you high above
