about

This EP contains the song 'Breathing', a song about Kate's daughter Alex and her little sister Niamh. Alex died aged 13 in 2005 of a heart condition that needn't have killed her if she'd been tested. Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) work to raise awareness and funds for screening programmes, to help save young lives. We want you to download and enjoy this track for free, but if you'd like, you could text PXNY59 £1 to 70070 to donate to CRY in Alex's memory.
You can also donate here: www.justgiving.com/Remembering-Alex
At least 12 young people die of treatable but undetected heart conditions each week, in the UK and every death is a tragedy. It's too late for Alex, but it doesn't have to be too late for all of them. Please help. x

about

DaylightSaving Canterbury, UK

Having been told they weren't 'pure jazz enough' by a UK radio station that shall remain nameless, Richard and Kate delight in describing themselves as 'mongrel dogs of jazz-pop fusion and proud of it'. That half of their songs sound more like contemporary folk than either pop or jazz is neither here nor there.
DaylightSaving's sound combines elements of jazz, pop, folk and Latin.
Formed Nov 2008

Track Name: Breathing (acoustic duo)
I watched her cry for you, with nothing I could say to ease her mind,
I would have died to be with you, but I could not leave her behind.
Torn between the two, my love for her, my grief for you,
All that I can do is try to go on breathing.

First in my heart, you were the sun, the moon, the stars that filled my skies,
Now torn apart, all but for her, with whom what's left of my heart lies,
Torn between the two, my love for her, my grief for you,
All that I can do is try to go on breathing.

The westering sun falls low and paints the sky your colours, red and gold,
You shine there still, for all I know, and will burn bright, as I grow old,
Torn between the two, my love for her, my grief for you,
All that I can do is try to go on breathing.
