Butterflies (Out of Time) by Qkumba Zoo Music: Owl and Levannah; Lyrics: Levannah When I see you as I saw you Right there with your heart wide open Waiting only for the silence you would find Once life had closed the door Caterpillar craves tomorrow In a dream of wings in flight Caught up in cocoons of sorrow Colours bled away by claws of night Butterflies, fly to me Carrying my dreams of you Butterflies, fly through me Fading wings the things we just ran out of time We just ran out of time, ran out of time to do Casting spells and chanting prayers No protection against the night Hope was ever a fairytale On a fading ricochet of light Butterflies, fly to me Carrying my dreams of you Butterflies, fly through me Fading wings the things we just ran out of time We just ran out of time, ran out of time to do

about

Qkumba Zoo have surfaced from hibernation to release their first new songs in over 15 years. Best known for the 1996 hit “The Child (Inside)” - which reached number one on the Billboard dance charts in 1996 and later became known as “that Sea World song” in the early 2000’s – they decided that it’s time to stretch their wings again.

Speaking of stretching wings its apt that the title of the new single is “Butterflies (Out of Time)”. The song is a punchy reminder that life is short, and mashes together dance, acoustic rock, African hi-life plus a touch of classical, providing a bed for Levannah’s inspired lyrics and floating vocals. Included in the EP is “Flicker”, a reply to the opening track that love echoes on when the dance of life is done; and a remix of “Butterflies (Out of Time)” by Defective Sounds of London.

As a band Qkumba Zoo has always been a fan of others putting a twist on their original tracks - note that the Junior Vasquez remix on “The Child (Inside)” helped it reached the number one spot on the dance charts - and so we are super amped to have a deep trancey spin on “Butterflies (Out of Time)” by Defective Sounds of London.
