Into the sun

Into the sun

 

Don’t you want to come in from the cold

I’ve seen you standing out there alone

The street is full of souls that moan

and I am along way from home

 

Let me sit and be one

fall into the sun

Where I longed to be

Life with out fear

 

The laughter and smiles

light that sparkles in warm & cold days

Innocence radiates from my love’s face

The curves and color from her head to her waist

 

Let me sit and be one

fall into the sun

Where I longed to be

Life with out fear

 

The Joy she brings inside her heart

The smile she imparts

 

I see what is grace

and I know that I would never leave

I could forgot all that has caused me strife

and change my entire life

 

Let me sit and be one

fall into the sun

Where I longed to be

Life with out fear

Unclear – Painting You

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

First recorded in 1994 for the short Film  ‘The Time it take to Light a Cigarette’

 

Pretty things wishful thoughts

I inhale it to forget it all

 

Un Un Unclear

 

little bits, eat more

make noise, turn back

 

Un Un Unclear clear clear

 

The connection is depressed

throw it in the fire

 

Un un unclear clear clear

 

everything is not everything is not

everything everything everything

 

Un un unclear clear clear

Crazy Blues

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Why do you always assume the worst in the situation

When it could just be a fraction of the action that is happening

Your connection could be wrong

The suggested way of selection

 

Of all my recollections that I have seen

Slogans, tanks, jeans, where have you been

 

Your heart is never wrong

It can not be tempted

It is solid like Iron

and those are bullets they are firing

 

I know the walls are closing in

I can not be tempted by sin

Freedom does not mean thing

The words your eat again

 

Of all my recollections that I have seen

Slogans, tanks, jeans, where have you been

 

If you follow the crowd

then you will be judged like a cow

and nothing more than a number

if you make it to that Angel cloud

For What They Want

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

(In progress new album ‘Election’)

His roots went back into the community
Mothers loved him, at those coffee mornings
the hand that rocks the cradle
still ruled small town politics

 

The only problem is
nothing could come of it
the only problem was
it did not solve the problem

 

Butterfly is beautiful
It lands and then fly’s away
It lands in such a delicate way
so unlike ourselves

Never vote for what they want
but vote for what they fear

 

The only problem is
nothing could come of it
the only problem was
it did not solve the problem

 

They don’t like what they have
but fear what they might get
Better the devil you know
and young just throw it away

 

The only problem is
nothing could come of it
the only problem was
it did not solve the problem

Midnight Star

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

From the album ‘The Gospel according to Who‘ and ‘Night Sessions

Midnight Star

To know is not to ask

unless you are totally made of glass

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

 

The feast in the daylight it is achieving

the lives that we live there so deceiving

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

 

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

Your so high, your so high, I don’t know

I am so low, I am so low I don’t know

I am so low, I am so low God knows

got to go, got to go, got to go

 

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright
