African Adventures

Hey guys... As many of you know, earlier this year we went to Africa to visit the Houses of Hope Africa. We had a great time and we brought a video guy with us because we wanted to share all of the excitement with you guys! Many of you have donated to the Houses of Hope Africa so we thought it'd be fun to show you first hand how your money is helping! We had an amazing time...filled with LOTS of adventures.

We put together 14 "webisodes" and we are going to release 1 per day for the next 14 days!

Here are the first two...make sure you subscribe to our YouTube Channel (youtube.com/jillandkatemusic) so that you don't miss any of the episodes :)

Things I Like (February 23)

"F-R-I-E-N-D-S." It's now on Nick@Nite...what's not to love about that? Flip-Flops. We have been in Florida for the past week and I've been able to wear flip-flops daily. It's like a dream. If I could wear flip-flops every day for the rest of my life, I would. They are far superior to shoes...in my opinion.

The show "An Idiot Abroad." It's our favorite show to watch on the bus on this tour. It is AWESOME. If you need a new show to watch, check it out. I think you'll be glad you did.

Pinterest. Why was I so late to the party on this? It's brilliant and addicting and inspiring. What's not to like?

This hilarious skit from SNL last week:

Those are the things I like this week.

Peace!

Awww...you guys.

It was recently brought to our attention that there are some YouTube videos out there that people have made for us with pictures/videos, etc :) So we did a little searching on the tubes and found that YES, in fact there are videos that y'all have made & so we thought we'd share them. We should really hire y'all for promotion. So fun looking over the old footage and pictures...time sure does fly when you are having fun. -j&k-

New Song on May 17, 2010

I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT IT'S LIKE

Closing another hotel door Drop bags on another patterned floor I've seen this city once or twice I'm sure

It's all about me and I'm Missing friends and losing time Or am I losing friends while I'm gone this time I'm not sure

What's it like in your 9-5 While I'm chasing skies, earning miles Are you counting down to Saturday night? I can't remember what it's like I can't remember what it's like

I hang a sign that says please come back While you step out on your welcome mat If isolation has a cost I know The price of that

It's all I could ever do To go against the grain And if I wanted to I'd never stop But it can't hurt to ask

What's it like in your 9-5 While I'm chasing skies, earning miles Are you counting down to Saturday night? I can't remember what it's like I can't remember what it's like

38000 miles high Flying right over your life I can't remember what it's like I can't remember what it's like

Song on October 17th!

IF YOU DON'T MEAN WELL

You don't wish me well You wish me heartache and hell You wish me roses that welt into weeds And you don't wish me peace You wish me nights of restless sleep Full of prayers full of words That never get heard

And if you don't mean well Then stay the hell away from me Cause I can't bare to breathe the air you breathe And you don't want me here

You want me struck down by my fears You want me drowning in my tears But I'll never be And I can't stand your face It's full of lies It's full of hate Take back the time that you wasted on me

And if you don't mean well Then stay the hell away from me Cause I can't bare to breathe the air you breathe

New Song on JUNE 17th... "TEXAS"

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxoKX1Yqv7k]

Some of you guys have been asking us to play "Texas" so....here it is!

j&k

TEXAS

Everything's bigger

Everything's better

Everything's fine in Texas

So send me a postcard

Write me a letter

Drop me a line

From Texas

Maybe down in Dallas

Or Austin or San Antonio

Texas is the best place you can go

When I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

You know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

And when I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

Cause you know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

And they understand

How to make me smile

How to make me laugh

How to put me back on my feet again

Even when I'm far

I'm feeling their big hearts

Feeling their love no matter where I am

Down from Dallas

And to Austin and San Antonio

Texas is the best place you can go

When I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

You know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

And when I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

Cause you know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

And it's true

Everything's bigger, everything's better

Everything's fine in Texas

You know when I'm feeling low

You know when I'm feeling low

When I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

You know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

And when I'm feeling restless

I call my friends in Texas

Cause you know they're the best a girl can get

They're the best a girl can get

Guess I Better Move On

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26HKqz0fUiU]

Guess I Better Move On

I think I'm going just a little bit crazy You're never gonna change And I'm a fighter but it's getting late and I'm just about to break

I've been tripping on every step  Ever since I put on these shoes And all the roads we take How come they never are the roads we'd choose

I'm falling fast  I don't think I'm gonna last

But I hold on til I hit the bottom Then I let go cause it's all I know And it's not like I haven't fought it But when everybody says it's over When everybody says it's over Guess I better move on

These are only words but they're all that I have left I've been chasing you climbing your ladders You don't ever stop to rest And I don't want to give in Cause I don't want you to win

I'm falling fast  I don't think I'm gonna last

But I hold on til I hit the bottom Then I let go cause it's all I know And it's not like I haven't fought it  But when everybody says it's over When everybody says it's over Guess I better move on Guess I better move on

I'm fighting for every word I want it so bad it hurts But you have stolen every bit of hope I had and I don't think I'm gonna last

Chasing Storms

You’re chasing storms

You cannot fight

Following the trail of lights

Starting fires

You touch the flames

You’re burning up

You don’t notice a thing

 

Cause you’re tired from chasing the wind

And your feet can’t feel where you’ve already been

Are you right back where you started again

 

It’s all at your fingertips

But you can’t feel it anymore

You’re running past what you’re looking for 

It’s knockin’ down your front door

You can’t hear it

You can’t feel it anymore
