Lion Raj tells how ‘Eleventh Hour’ came to being…

“My mother, the main reason why this song was written. Her name was Ellen and she passed away the 6th of March 2018, just a few days after I found out my wife & I will have our first child. I thought of how strange it was, on one side life was lost and on the other we celebrated the arrival of our daughter. We named her after my mother, “Ellenor”. The sweet and the sour of life. The ups and the downs. I felt miserable and also happy. There was something I was sad about, but I was looking forward to meeting my daughter. It is never the end, life goes on & there is always something to look forward to, something to live for if you look close enough.”

The music video was captured on a busy night on Lower Main Road in Observatory, Cape Town. It was shot in one continuous take, symbolising that life goes on regardless of whether you mess up or not. You can only move forward and take the highs and the blows, but always remember to keep on moving and make the most of what you have with the time you were given.


LYRICS OF “ELEVENTH HOUR”
 
VERSE 1
Crossroads it’s all I see
So many persons I could’ve been
Today another place awaits in the darkness
A path you will choose tonight and you don’t know if it’s right
You don’t know if you are going to be alright
It’s all on you and you don’t have a clue
 
PRE-CHORUS
Life…a place where you hope and dream, but not always a place of waffles & cream
 
CHORUS
But it is not the eleventh hour
 
VERSE 2
More like Chinese food, sweet & sour
Many times it feels like your last hour
It’s all up to you to know who you are
Yes you are strong but admit you have a scar
Don’t be ignorant to your weaknesses
 
PRE-CHORUS
Life…a place where you hope and dream, but not always a place of waffles & cream
 
CHORUS
But it is not the eleventh hour
 
BRIDGE
A place where things can make you scream
A place where your bread can turn green
A place where the weather forecast is mistaken
A place where you can wake up to the smell of eggs and bacon
A place where can get hurt by someone you love
A place where you can fall in love with someone sent from above
Sweet & Sour
It’s not the last hour
All good
All right
Stronger than I was before
 
OUTRO
I may not belong, but I will stay
I may not belong, but I am okay

Watch the unplugged version of “Eleventh Hour”. Performed in Paarl on Nooitgedacht farm.

Band: Melony Phoenixx (Drums/Vocals) & Anel Skye (Piano/Vocals)
