    "The Future is Purple" Official Video by The Cheek of Her! Release date: 28th September, 2015! http://www.thecheekofher.com

    Video by: Pedro Chaves (Dream Journey Studios)

    The Future is Purple" is about becoming more conscious that our lives on earth are only temporary, and that we are all literally in the same boat trying to figure it all out. I called it "The Future is Purple" playing a little with a mobile phone advert slogan that used to exist (if you remember it!), and just thinking about what perhaps lies ahead for some of us: rollers and a nice purple rinse!

    It was recorded as a pair in the same session as the previous Single "YOLO" which also deals with the theme of blowing caution to the wind and doing what you need to and are passionate about in life, so the live vibe of the track goes hand in hand with the the real life theme.

    What do you want,
    From this life?
    Do you crave world domination?
    Or do you wanna be somebody’s wife?
    Running around in circles,
    Not getting anywhere,
    The future is bright purple,
    With rollers in her hair.

    I hope you get to meet me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    I hope you get to hold me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    Didn’t know what I was looking for,
    Took you on left right drag my feet on the floor.
    Now I’ve had a bite,
    I’m left wanting more.

    No-one to tell me right from wrong,
    I grabbed my heart,
    And I put it in my songs.
    Is it better now?
    Or is it all wrong?

    What do you want,
    From this life?
    Do you crave world domination?
    Or do you just wanna sleep real good tonight?
    Running around in circles,
    Not getting anywhere,
    The future is bright purple,
    With rollers in her hair.

    I hope you get to meet me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    I hope you get to hold me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    I guess you should feel oh so very good,
    Like the wolf rockin’ little Miss Red Riding Hood.
    Not what I’m waiting for,
    Nor what I should.

    I dream bigger and brighter each day,
    Like you can never imagine and I can never explain.
    Let’s light the match,
    And call it a day.

    We’re all afloat the boat,
    That’s drifting on by,
    That’s drifting on by,
    Yeah you and I.

    We’re all afloat the boat,
    That’s drifting on by,
    That’s drifting on by,
    Yeah you and I.

    I hope you get to meet me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    I hope you get to meet me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time.

    I hope you get to hold me,
    Before the lights go out.
    The lights go out,
    For the last time. Show less
