"My fiktiewe helfte" deur Nadia Schultz
Nadia Schultz - 2011-11-09
My fiktiewe helfte Dit frustreer my, jy beheer my. Ek kan nie kophou sonder woorde. Ek kan nie los nie, nooit verlos nie. Dis soos gebreekte leë akkoorde. Jy figureer nog net in my drome. Jy is wie ek blameer vir die woorde. Jy ... is op die horison. Jy fassineer my, jy waardeer my. Jy is altyd in my kop. Altyd waarom, altyd hoekom. Kan ek nooit net liefde aanvaar nie? Jy figureer nog net in my drome. Jy is wie ek blameer vir die woorde. Jy ... is op die horison. Keer terug na die...

"Ontevrede" deur Cherise Hider
Cherise Hider - 2011-11-08
Ontevrede Struikel vir die toekoms, bedel vir die verlede Ons het als gehaat, nogtans so ontevrede. Ons drome vat aan geen waarde nie, soet in die stilte aanvaar ons die skadu’s Ons kyk aanhoudend om ons skouers, besef ek ons raak nes ons ouers. Ons wil maar net volwassenes wees, word ons die oplossing van hul slegte keuse? En steeds is ons verskriklik onseker, want hier staan geen mense met rede. Ek weet ons word gemanipuleer, so staan saam met my en was af die dae van skuld wat ons...

"Better than this" by Jenna Potgieter
Jenna Potgieter - 2011-11-08
Better than this They mark me with the sins of all With one look at what I am They see the ragged clothes and dirt Think please they’re just a scam I know there’s something beyond this place Away from these street lights Beyond these threadbare blankets and cloaks That cause so many fights I’ve heard them talk of wondrous things Of places not far away I’m sure if places like that exist They’d welcome me to stay? I watch the people walking past And wait for them to see...

"Between a hard place and a rock" by Angie Gallagher
Angie Gallagher - 2011-11-08
Between a hard place and a rock Father Time lives in a glass condo its windows stained with history He sits there in the afterglow, crooked finger pointing at me Why do you just deny, decline? Leave everything to ninety-nine? he says. I say, pray listen: fate compels me to procrastinate CHORUS: His fuddy-duddy geriatrics He can keep behind a lock can’t give a damn for deadlines a shrill alarm, a watch, a clock Forever more we’ve all been stuck between this hard place and this...

"Now the night is over" by Eleri Morgan
Eleri Morgan - 2011-11-08
Now the night is over Now the night is over will you be mine forever? Say you will? We can take this road together holding on to all that is true. [Chorus] No-one needs to know the way I feel tonight. No-one needs to care they wouldn't understand. This secret love affair has come and gone but there's always something to remember, always something there. Hold me now don’t leave me. Just stay a while with me. Say you will? This magic that we're feeling is all I need to make it with you. ...

"Where do we go from here" by Eleri Morgan
Eleri Morgan - 2011-11-08
Where do we go from here You never wanted anything more. You never asked for anything sure. Just when I thought it was safe to be free, Something started deep within me. [Chorus] Why'd you have to go and say Those words which went and had their way? Turned my life right upside down Broken pieces on the ground. Beautiful pieces. In this night I see it’s real What it means to truly feel. Close your eyes and be All that I want and need For now, this is all we'll allow. Then where do we go from...

"Sweetness" by Eleri Morgan
Eleri Morgan - 2011-11-08
Sweetness Sweetness close your eyes Tell me what you see Darling, touch my heart Listen to its beat. For you, I do everything for this I want to thank you. [Chorus] From the bottom of my heart You know I am true Every day that I wake up I thank God I've got you. You're the reason I can smile. You make my world go round. Baby everything you do Makes me crumble to the ground. Isn’t it lovely, the love we share completely. Loving you is all I need A smile can make my day. In this, together...

"Jy en die liefde" deur Michael Laubscher
Michael Laubscher - 2011-11-08
Jy en die liefde Ek sing Bob Dylan en jy sing saam Terwyl ons prentjies trek op die maan Ek kyk in jou oë en jy kyk verder Tot my hart se goed wat skuinslê Ek verlang na die Boland en die berg En hoe die sonstrale die see terg Dis jou soene wat my terugbring Na jou hart se liefdeskring Koor Jy en die liefde loop saam En ek is ook by Jy en die liefde het my kom haal En nou fluister dit my naam Ek wonder oor die sterre daar bo En jy vertel my dis goed om te glo Ek loop spore op die strand...

"Sal jy bly" deur Marlie Breet
Marlie Breet - 2011-11-08
Sal jy bly Die ou langs my weet dalk wat ek wou sê al sit ek met hande vol van jou en iemand wat nog iets wil hê. Ek sal steeds met jou praat soos met die wind Want jy het my lief so asof jy kan soek en geen foute sal vind. As ek vir jou ‘n geheim mag vertel dan sou ek bieg ek is soms bang. Maar dan begin die woorde Borrel, en ek Giggel net gou ‘n grappie voor die groot woorde opdrup Eintlik is dit hoe dit klink As ek vra: ‘Sal jy bly?’ Keer terug na...

"Doodgelukkig" deur Celeste Theron
Celeste Theron - 2011-11-08
Doodgelukkig Vers 1 Die verlore dogter het nooit teruggekeer sy het net aangehou stap en geslaap saam met al die varke Vers 2 Een oggend in die kou Met die ryp en die dou tussen geil begroeide duine Het ons haar gevind Waar sy terug in Moeder Aarde Se baarmoeder ontbind. Koor: Sy was doodgewoon. Gewoon-dood. Sy is doodgelukkig. Gelukkig-dood. Sy was een van daai kinders Wat aan Niemandsland behoort Die laaste van die blikkantien Het helaas genesing voorsien Vers 3 En terwyl die brak see...

"Sync(Sink)" by Quinton Simmons
Quinton Simmons - 2011-11-08
Sync(Sink) Chorus: I was caught up in your fantasy Of wondrous things that will never be Of things that weren’t meant for me No longer blind, now I see The error in my ways And how I let you lead me astray Verse 1: And this is how the story goes Many, many years ago Before unpleasantries unfold And nasty rumours told We walked the same road In search of the same goal The realization of a dream Our names on the big screen Fans screaming our names And a pocket full of change We were so in...

"Too long" by Lila Bruk
Lila Bruk - 2011-11-08
Too long Don’t hate her when she smiles at you Or despise her for her eyes’ blue hue Think of how much you’re losing On this path that you’re choosing And even though it’s not you that she kisses And at night’s end it’s not you that she misses She loves you for the friend you will always be She remembers you for when you created memory Chorus: How long are you gonna make her suffer For loving another Hasn’t this gone on too long? How long are...

"Tonight and ever" by Marius van Wyk
Marius van Wyk - 2011-11-08
Tonight and ever I never wanted to be alone, and I’m sorry for all the things I have done. I’ll never ask you for anything, and I’m breaking the pieces inside me. And I know now how I feel today. Now, I’m slipping, I’m falling, please catch me I’m calling, because I am on my own tonight and I cry. I never pretended to be something I’m not, please don’t drain me of blood, for this is all I have tonight and ever. I never wanted to feel this way, and...

" Neptune" by Marius van Wyk
Marius van Wyk - 2011-11-08
Neptune You warm this space with all the love in your heart. The gravity pulls our time away and leaves us both just drifting apart. For you leave me breathless in the way that you sway, moving so graceful, with no laws or boundaries, no precepts to obey. As I long for a wish to be fulfilled, for the world to be placed on hold, so that we can take a time to breathe, to say one more prayer for the planets to align, for the dust and smoke to block out the sun for a while, so that we can find our...

Karyn Donjoa - 2011-11-08
House of cards I think I've lost you when you do the things you do then you take me in your arms and everything that's wrong seems right the words are so familiar and our hearts pound the beat then I remember I'm lucky to have you when you do the things you do Lying is easier than the truth dying is easier than living bleeding is easier than the pain Drain my heart of blood stop the pain I feel my body is a battleground and my mind fights on both sides I'm damned to live through my art because...

"Voting booth" by Clarence Payne
Clarence Payne - 2011-11-08
Voting booth You judge me, but you don’t know me, You love thee, but you don’t show me. I trust thee lest I forget, That premature judgment always claims the last set. The pain torments me, This judgment presents thee. A picture with an untold truth, My inner core, my voting booth. It’s there where the silence screams, Where the heart opens, and the little boy dreams. It’s there where I hold my truth, Of the little boy in the voting booth. It’s in the booth that...

Calla van Loggerenberg - 2011-11-08
Falling star Verse 1 I’m sorry if I broke your heart If I lied to you from the start If I made a tear fall down your face Now I lost you without a trace Pre-chorus All I ever wanted was to make you safe All I ever wanted was to make you mine All I ever needed was to hear your voice All I ever needed was to see you here Chorus Now I’m all alone, while you watch me fall Like a shooting star, it is over now I am not complete, I need that one more piece To make me whole, to take control...

Genre Pretorius - 2011-11-08
Dummy drunk petrol punk Jelly shots on the marble counter Throwing up in the porcelain holder Waking up on a stranger’s shoulder Making out and you don’t even know her All you remember is the pretty waiter Threatening ‘bout some restraining order The blackout booze was never enough You’ll find our dummy drunk at the petrol pump As long as the shadows hide their stares You can’t be bothered oh you just don’t care go back to school when your in the mood Writing...

"1984" by G. Johnson
G. Johnson - 2011-11-08
1984 Did you see me walking down the street in 1984 Make up dripping from my face, I was a girl, I was a boy The ocean breeze was very cold I was never young I was never old We played the games that young ones do You loved me, and I loved you Did you see me walking down the street in 1984 Make up dripping from my hands I was a girl I was your toy The ocean breeze was very cold We were never young we were never old You went home when the tide was high Sang blondie songs straight to the sky ...

“Red shoes” by G Johnson
G Johnson - 2011-11-08
Red shoes You left in the morning Your scent left a moment I called out your name And I waited for summer You sent me a flower The colour of winter The castles you built All went to the water I see that you've found a career in the media You never complained when I gave you advice So summer has gone now And spring time is sleeping The band plays the tune that I whistled for you dear Chorus: Shine like a sparkling dancer, your red shoes have broken your stride Your number has changed And your...

“Blackout” by JP Jansen van Vuuren
JP Jansen van Vuuren - 2011-11-08
Blackout It started in a darkened room. Full moon, no music just me and you. Static electricity between us two. Couldn’t help but fall for you. Our love was strong. Stronger than a silly love song. You said that I was your all. but now silence decks these halls. I think we’re headed for a blackout. Chorus: The power is out, our love’s in the dark We collided in a fraction of time. Could we ignite the ignition forget past decisions Run away from this blackout, blackout. Dancing...

Ninette Botha - 2011-11-08
Dodging daggers Verse 1 One step forward Too many back I’m trying to focus It’s consolation I lack The words, the key to my thoughts When dodging daggers The hurt closes their hearts I’ll prevail though I’ll wake With blood on my back You’ll have to face the mistake That was yours to make Verse 2 Once colourful scenes In my mind faded to grey The one I once knew Strayed along the way I no longer can be held back By mere memories of you Got to remove myself Need to...

Listen (don’t just hear me) Verse 1: Nowadays we no longer have time to listen we are constantly on the move, face facing forward ears on both sides but they are merely ornaments to complete the face, the world has deafened us as people speak we can hear them but are we really listening?

Jaco Venter - 2011-11-08

"Time to forgive" by Chris-Marie Niemand
Chris-Marie Niemand - 2011-11-08
Time to forgive Verse 1 I remember your face, your voice, The smell of your alcoholic breath. Saying a word was no choice And it wasn’t until after your death That I opened up and talked About the time that I was stalked. Verse 2 You were supposed to be my protector The one I could lean on in the dark But you became my private tormentor And forever left me with a mark I struggle to forget that quiet night When you sat down at my bedside Chorus I know it wasn’t you in there Dad I...

Same Lights, Different City Another night, another city Another girl, they're all so pretty ... but she's a stranger & I'm in danger of being used ... & liking it ... Then she killed me on the dance floor she murdered with her movement and I like being moved There is no distinction, a villain & a victim, a needle hits the groove & everybody starts to move The roads roll on, the frequency gets low there's noise on the signal so I will say it slow I might be a stranger & you...

"Ode to a pale male" by Francois Williams
Francois Williams - 2011-11-08
Ode to a pale male The soft white male working hard for the money walking with briefcase suited and tied to desk and computer stressed beyond the point of no return, living creatively on drugs just to escape the "fruits" of his labour; a little house in suburbia with a neat green lawn and maybe a pool too; a decent enough wife, if a little boring, professionally engaged in the same pursuit of chasing the big buck down; a brat or two in kindergarten, mostly strangers parked in front of the telly,...
