about

In June 2014 I travelled to Matala, on the Greek island of Crete to play a music festival.

While I was there I met a 15 year old songwriter who lives in the town. She showed me a book of her lyrics and I loved them. I wrote a melody and some chords and together we developed her words to fit the music. I really wanted to capture the magic of this amazing place, full of music and positivity.

lyrics

Today is life and tomorrow never comes
That's what they say down in Matala
Hippies all around they're dancing in the dark
Living in the caves and loving in their hearts

Woah woah
Woah woah

Peace and love and kissing under the stars

Feels like the night is never ending, we're in paradise
Stars are glowing waves are sending messages to the sky
Come with me and I'll show you it's beauty

Sea smell all around and even paintings on the ground
Friendly people to help you out
Flowers in out hair and our hands to the sky
We don't even care if we live or die

Just want peace and love and kissing under the stars

Feels like the night is never ending, we're in paradise
Stars are glowing waves are sending messages to the sky
Come with me and I'll show you it's beauty

Woah woah
Woah woah
Woah woah
Woah woah

Just want peace and love and kissing under the stars

Feels like the night is never ending, we're in paradise
Stars are glowing waves are sending messages to the sky
Come with me and I'll show you it's beauty

Today is life and tomorrow never comes
That's what they say down in Matala
