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: Sunshine (is a State of Mind)
Sunshine (is a state of mind)

It's not the weather, it's the clouds in your eyes
That bring the thunder to your skies
And sitting still to wring your hands and bathe in wishful thinking
Won't stop the falling rain or save your cloud-filled ship from sinking

Give yourself a little time, and then you'll find
Sunshine is a state of mind, sunshine is a state of mind.

Chains of past regret, so hard to break
Bitter-sweet, addictive, the taste of heartache
Lingers on your lips, and in your secret heart
You hold it close to hide your fear of ever making a new start

Give yourself a little time, and then you'll find
Sunshine is a state of mind, sunshine is a state of mind.

<Middle 8>
Doubts that bring you down, clouds that leave you blind
Are only in your eyes until you blink them away - leave them behind
With open heart and open mind

<solos>

Give yourself a little time, and then you'll find
Sunshine is a state of mind, sunshine is a state of mind.

Just wanting to believe never made it so
But letting yourself dream and letting go
Of the things that hold you back, wishes you know can't come true
Lets you find your way, let's start today

Give yourself a little time, and then you'll find
Sunshine is a state of mind, sunshine is a state of mind.

Verse 1
Nothing but the rain, coming down today
Everything's the same, nothing new to say
Nothing but the rain, to wash away the fear
Everything's the same, but spring comes every year

Chorus 1
Turn and face the sun, surrender to the season
All is said and done, the rain is just a reason
To grow stronger,
The rain is just a reason to grow stronger

Verse 2
Days that only break, nights that only fall
Dreams from which you wake, feeling lost and small
Days that only break into the light of day
Dreams from which you wake, to start out on your way

Chorus 2
Turn and face the sun, surrender to the season
When all is said and done, you know the rain is just a reason
To grow stronger,
Yeah, the rain is just a reason to grow stronger

Middle 8
You build your wall of words, hide behind your scars,
You're keeping who you want to be from who you are,
And never risking love keeps you safe from pain,
Safe and cold, and all alone, with nothing but the rain.

Verse 3
Nothing but the rain, coming down today
Everything's the same, nothing new to say
There's nothing but the rain, to wash away the fear
And everything's the same, but spring comes every year

Chorus 3
Turn and face the sun, surrender to the season
When all is said and done, you know the rain is just a reason
To grow stronger,
Yeah, the rain is just a reason to grow stronger
Track Name: Pretty Blue
Pretty Blue

There are no clouds to mar my summer skies
They are the colour of your pretty eyes
And I have no right to sit here, wishing over you
But here I am, pretty blue.

Sun through the trees here, in this quiet place
Dappled light plays on your pretty face
I can't ask you to be true
But here I am, pretty blue.

I'm so blue, thinking of you on your own, me here alone,
I can't be with you, it's just a crying shame, but all the same
I'll stay right here and dream of you,
My pretty blue.

Every day I wake up, you're on my mind
I want to tell you that you are my kind
No reason for hoping you feel it too
But here I am, pretty blue.
