LYRICS & INFO

1. Game of Love – The Kiffness & Raiven Hunter ft. Gemma Griffiths

Composition, vocals & lyrics by Raiven Hansmann
Produced, mixed & mastered by David Scott
Additional Vocals by Gemma Griffiths
Recorded at Popsicle Studios, Cape Town

I know that your body looks emotive

I know that your tears stick down your hair

but when I look out and see the ocean

it feels as if we’ re the only ones who care

You know that my temper isn’t stable

You know I forgot to clear the air

but when I drink up this magic potion

it seems as if we’re the only ones who care

in this game of love…

This isn’t my first, but maybe last time

I knew that I wouldn’t make it through

He made it so clear and so I messed up

And then I saw light and it was only you

in this game of love…

You found me. I was in a hopeless place

I was trying to make it back, through the cold of the night

And baby, remember when our love was young, we’d stay up till the sun would come

And warm us to the touch

When did everything go, when did everything go wrong?

We were alive until the wind blew, blew us out

You’ve buried everything now, pushed our memories six feet down,

 Could we survive another winter? Don’t let your love go cold

Don’t let your love go cold

Leave the light on, coz baby I can carry us

Leave it flickering for long enough, till you find your feet again

When did everything go, when did everything go wrong?

Could we survive another winter? Don’t let your love go cold

Don’t let your love go cold

4. You Say You Love Me – The Kiffness ft. Tawanna Shaunte

Composed, mixed & produced by David Scott
Vocals & Lyrics by Tawanna Shaunte
Saxophone & Piano by Clement Carr
Mastered by Vincente Espi
Recorded at Kiffness Studios, Cape Town

You say you love me but you don’t

Got me feeling, them artificial feelings

Got them minds now, with a mental illness

You said  you love me but you don’t

Yeah ohh, oh, Yeah ooh, oh

You said you love me but you don’t

Your test scores came in

And your schools is failin’

You said you love me but I realize your act

Why should I keep loving something that won’t even love me back.

5. Evergreen – Tresor & The Kiffness

Composition, vocals & lyrics by Tresor Riziki

Piano by Clement Carr 
 
Recorded at Audio Malitia, Johannesburg

Before I say a word, you know what I mean
By the morning sun we’ll be one
Breathing you like oxygen
And let my lungs depend on you to function
Maybe I’m too forward with how I’m feeling
How am I supposed to hide it when your body’s my healing?
Evergreen, not even time can put a crack on us (oh no)
Evergreen, For as long as my skin can feel your skin
We’ll be…


Evergreen x 2

The tide is rising up, with your body on my body
I know you wanna get lost in this beautiful madness
Making love until we get weak and carry on until we’re ninety
I know, I know, I knowThis love is ageless

Maybe I’m too forward with how I’m feeling
How am I supposed to hide it when your body’s my healing
Evergreen, not even time can put a crack on us (oh no)
Evergreen, For as long as my skin can feel your skin
We’ll be…
Evergreen x 2

I’d rather lose it all than losing you (than losing you)
I’d let myself go, just to keep you (just to keep you)

6. White Privilege – The Kiffness

Composed, produced, mixed & mastered by David Scott
Vocals & Lyrics by David Scott
Recorded at Kiffness Studios, Cape Town

Mmm, we’re victims of the times.

Being white is a 21st century crime

When your parents pay your tuition fees and you have a lot of opportunities

Privilege. Wha wha wha wha white privilege

When you see a protest and like to complain while you tweet about it and drink champagne

Privilege. Wha wha wha wha white privilege

When you didn’t have to deal with years of oppression but deny that you benefit from your complexion

Privilege. Wha wha wha wha white privilege

When you cry because your guilt is an issue but the skin’s the same colour as your 3ply tissue

Privilege. Wha wha wha wha white privilege

Mmm, we’re victims of the times.

Being white is a 21st century crime

When you want your rhymes to be amaze, but they all just seem so mayonnaise

Disability. Wha wha white disability

When you’re at a wedding and you want to dance, but as much as you try you don’t stand a chance

Disability. Wha wha white disability

“Carla Carter” (Nkalakatha) comes on it’s your favourite song, it feels so right but you look so wrong

Disability. Wha wha white disability

You have all these real and crippling fears, but when you cry they’re just called white tears

Disability. Wha wha white disability

Mmm, we’re victims of the times.

Being white is a 21st century crime

(they are shutting us out. We say power is togetherness. Living together. Building together)

No man is an island, indeed

Consciousness bleed. Two worlds collide to feel

Happiness is a spiritual need

My Black people

My White people

My Indian people

And my Coloured people

Something is wrong and we can make it all right

So O blomme le magrootman, zwakala re o gabodise

(You are now hanging out with magrootman/older wise men. Come let us teach you something.Gabodisa is slang for lets give you a drink but in this context it means let us the wise ones teach you something)

One day we gonna end all the borders

Make it possible for us to live together

Just ride, rise and stop the killings

You’re my African brother, a true makhelwane

(makhelwane is neighbor)

Let’s teach our seeds

My house is your house, you can visit anytime you want

Ha re le mmoho re matla

(When we are together we are stronger)

Re ka hlola meleko

(We can overcome trouble)

Re ba ngata ho ba feta

(there is more of us than them)

Ntja pedi ha e hlole ke sebata

(Sotho saying Im not sure of translation will ask Hloni and let you know asap)

Re ya ba bona ba balabala ba parlamenteng

(We see them messing up in parliament)

Ba batla ho re qabanya

(they want to cause conflict among us)

Ena keya batho ha ena malla

Each one teach one, let’s all unite

One world, one voice let’s march together

Let’s change to a better human race

My Black people

My White people

My Indian people

And my Coloured people

Something is wrong and we can make it all right x4

Rise us my people now is the time to be the change we want to see

Be kind to one another; let’s see the humanity in all of us

We can not rely on the system that keeps on dividing us and making us its victims

It’s up to live our best lives, it’s all on us

Picking me up when you see that I need a helping hand

Rise up!

When we work together we all win

(we all win). Yeah yeah (yeah yeah)

Rise up

Stand up

And break these chains and fix these bonds
