about

Giftbox is inspired by the great singers of the 60’s like Dusty Springfield and Nancy Sinatra. The song blends the power of American soul and the honesty of UK pop with killer lines “I’ve seen a few, I’ve lived some too, more than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through,” Sandy tells a story of when unexpected events throw you off course, you can still remain steady and hang on for the ride.

Track Name: Giftbox
Noticed the tide was on the turn
had a fast car and time to burn
before I turned from the ocean
A little something caught my eye
You wouldn’t understand it, should anyone really care
Was a Giftbox of oblivion, big enough to shatter any nightmare

And I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

Thought I’d take a little gamble, take a stroll on the sand,
Cause you never know till you get there, abandon all my hopes and fears
You wouldn’t understand it - Should anyone really care
That giftbox of oblivion, big enough to shatter any nightmare...

And I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

I’ve lost - my head, and I found my heart instead
But now - it’s too late, I drove a hundred miles & climbed aboard a leap of faith

I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

Feel a little disconcerted, let it wash over me
My giftbox of oblivion, let me steal away from everything…
