about

“Flowers more fleeting, more ethereal, would become like messengers from another realm like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless. They not only had a scent that was delicate and pleasing to human beings, but also brought a fragrance to the realm of spirit.” Eckhart Tolle, captures Lu Flur’s music and philosophy in this excerpt from his book, A New Earth.

We are proud and excited to present you with Floriology, our first 5 track EP. This is our own 'language of the flowers' and it is our hope that each song takes you on a personal journey to a realm of the metaphysical!

We are soul. We are dust. We are flesh. We are heart. We are mind. We are Lu Flur.

Thank You to:
David Grevler for helping us make this happen & to Wikus Combrinck for all his support. A big shout out to our families & EVERYONE who has supported Lu Flur on our journey thus far! Much love Jude HarpStar & Zahné

Track Name: Future Tides
Future Tides
Music & Lyrics by Zahné Briel & Judith Maria Dorothea Van der Wat.

Hold me in your arms tonight
Block me from the future tide
Remaining still for a little while
Waiting for the storm to rise

VERSE 1

Longing for those younger days
when everything seemed
like oh summer days
All my worries so far away
Green fields and orange trees
and arms open wide

CHORUS

Hold me in your arms tonight
Block me from the future tide
Remaining still for a little while
Waiting for the storm to rise

VERSE 2

Oh so fast right before my eyes
Time moving forward, backward
somehow collide
Waking up to another life
Green fields, dark waters
still glimmering sunlight

CHORUS

Hold me in your arms tonight
Block me from the future tide
Remaining still for a little while
Waiting oh, Waiting oh
Waiting oh, Waiting oh

BRIDGE

Quiet and peace
One mind at ease
Can think
Can feel
Can see again

Quiet and peace
One mind at ease
Can think
Can feel
Can see again

CHORUS

Hold me in your arms tonight
Block me from the future tide
Remaining still for a little while
Waiting oh, Waiting oh
Waiting oh, Waiting oh
for the storm to rise
Track Name: If Only
If Only
Music & Lyrics by Zahné Briel & Judith Maria Dorothea Van der Wat.

VERSE 1

Who gave you
those blue eyes and kisses
He says he loves you so dearly
but he turns around with his fits
You smile as if nothing happens
If only your knowing was so bliss
and you keep on keeping up
your masquerade

CHORUS

If only
he’d hold you
loved you
and didn’t hurt you with his words at all
and hold you loved you
and didn’t hit you with his fits
falling more and more
sooner or later your tears run dry
you’re left with an untamed beast
and a man that was once

VERSE 2

Does he still give
you those blue eyes
oh and kisses
Does he still love you
so dearly
but you turn the other cheek
you smile insincerely
your happiness to dust
but you keep on oh
your keeping up
your masquerade

CHORUS

If only
he’d hold you
loved you and
didn’t hurt you with his words at all
and hold you loved you
and didn’t hit you with his fits
falling more and more
sooner or later your tears run dry
you’re left with an untamed beast
and no end in sight
Does he still give you those blue eyes & kisses
Track Name: Translucent
Translucent
Music & Lyrics by Zahné Briel & Judith Maria Dorothea Van der Wat.


Am I so predictable
So forgiving and giving
don’t you want to be my friend ‘till the end
Such a sweet and selfless soul
don’t you disregard my will
I tell you not to be so cruel tonight

CHORUS

My translucent heart
beats to its own drum
sometimes so loud
uncontrollable
unavoidable
my translucent
my translucent
beats so soft so loud so still

No respect you show for me
No sense of a family
I don’t know what to say
or how to act
So I’ll just do what I know
Not give into you my foe
I will stand my ground

CHORUS

My translucent heart
beats to its own drum
sometimes so loud
uncontrollable
unavoidable
my translucent
my translucent beats

OUTRO

Oh you say you know
everything about me
you say you know
everyone around me
you say you know
every single beat of my heart
Track Name: No Friend of Mine
No Friend of Mine
Music & Lyrics by Zahné Briel & Judith Maria Dorothea Van der Wat.

VERSE 1

Like a fish out of water
gasping for air
but you where off
on your own little island
aloof staring not care
four years we worked so hard
became good friends and all
climbed some mountains
swam some seas

we’re drifting, we’re drifting,
we’re drifting apart
drifting, we’re drifting, we’re drifting apart
drifting, we’re drifting, we’re drifting apart

CHORUS

You are not my friend
No matter what you say
four years don’t mean nothing
when there’s no response
no reply

VERSE 2

I lost my school of fishes
can I be in yours
You look at me as if
you’ve never seen this face before
I’m a single dot in an ocean of blues
with only one soul close to mine
and you know who’s
we’re drifting, we’re drifting,
we’re drifting apart
drifting, we’re drifting, we’re drifting apart
drifting, we’re drifting, we’re drifting apart

CHORUS

You are not my friend
No matter what you say
four years don’t mean nothing
when there’s no response
no reply
You are not my friend
No matter what you say
4 years don’t mean nothing
when there’s no response
no reply

OUTRO

You are not my friend
You are not
You are not
You are not
You are not
(x5)
You are not (x6)
You are not my friend.
