Goats & Trees (Stay)

Music and Lyrics by Zaria Van Jaarsveld ©

Verse 1

Today is the perfect day of my life. I wanna run to the fields.
Somewhere where there’s goats and trees.
Away from the city noises.
I wanna run to the mountains, where the wild lilies grow.
Windmills on top of the hills. Hundreds of butterflies.

Chorus

Stay when there’s eagles in the sky. Stay then there’ll be warmth in my heart.
Stay then the sun will never set. Stay then I’ll make you a cup of tea.
Oh will you sit next to me. I’ll guarantee you’ll never leave.
Please will you sit next to me, I will show the stars.

Verse 2

There beside the still still waters. We will find some fruit trees to climb.
Then we’ll see some wild wild horses, they will run with our wildest dream.

Verse 3

Laughter until it is morning. I will bring my cat along.
She enjoys to watch the wild geese. Flying traveling on their journeys.
Stay when there’s eagles in the sky.
Stay then there will be warmth in my heart.
Stay then the sun will never set.
Stay then I’ll make you a cup of tea.

Zaria blends an enchanting voice & evocative, poignant & insightful lyricism

Zaria ‘Van Jaarsveld’ in Afrikaans literally means Zaria ‘from years in the field’; as well as being the name of a small town in Holland.

So it’s perhaps no coincidence that Zaria grew up in the enchanted Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town, one of the most beautiful natural settings in South Africa.
