Sonskyn in 'n koevert


pak jou kouse die reën is oppad,
trek styf jou belt.
pak nog sonskyn in 'n kovert,

of lugkastele in jou kosblik,

kon jy nog droom.

Nou is jy groot,
niks is meer lekker nie.
mens huil vir die wat sterf,
bekommer oor die wat leef.
Ironies.

Sunshine in an envelope.

pack your socks the rain is on its way,
pull tight your belt.
pack more sunshine in the envelope,

or sky castle's in your lunch tin.

from when you could dream.

Now your all grown up.
Nothing is fun anymore,
you cry when people die,
and worry about the ones that's alive.
Ironic.

ek like die enne baie.
dis soos 'n song iets wat sal veroorsaak dat jy terug trek na jou ma toe net sodat jy weer velig kan voel... of jou kar en huis laat verkoop sodat jy 'n skaap en 'n stuk platteland kan koop
dis wat ek love van afrikaanse diggies

That is some powerful verse. I love these lines. They speak truth to me.
