about

Kai and I sat down to record drums for another tune and he started playing this drum beat on his own with no guidance or anything, just what he came up with. I caught him playing it with my voice memos on my phone and we went on to record the other tune. The following day I had this melody stuck in my head and wrote the lyrics. When I sat down to record out of curiosity I opened my voice memos and played back his beat. So that drum beat you hear invented this song. When Butch Ross and I were mixing he added in Van playing the keys from a video I had taken (it's the bit that sounds like the Jetson's car in the last verse. So here's me and my boys making music together. Cheers

lyrics

Rise and shine
Wipe the sleep out of your eyes
Seize the day
Don’t let your dreams all fade away

Rise and shine
Get up and see what you can find
Catch the sun
Arise and see your new day dawn

Well I know you’ll build a rocket boys
I hope I get to see you fly
If I ever show you anything
I hope I see you Rise and Shine

Rise and shine
Get what is yours and I’ll get mine
Take your time
Try and color outside of the lines

Rise and shine
All along the way of your climb
Shine your light
And all that’s yours will be all right

Life is what you make of it
You gotta give it all you’ve got
Let it get the best of you
It’s coming for you so liftoff

Well I know you’ll build a rocket boys
I hope I get to see you fly
If I ever show you anything
I hope I see you Rise and Shine
