Oh heya!  Just stepped out for a bite to eat, and a quick nap…..3 months ago……since my last little bloggy post, ya know?

What ya been doin since I was gone?  I hope you’ve been breathing in the fresh air and sunshine. Did you go for a walk in the woods? Stop to watch a bird, or a snail, or a tiny insect? Maybe took in a mental picture of a majestic mountain that’s been there for about a million and one years, or stopped to notice the mighty roar of the ocean heaving it’s waves on the beach and rocky crags – in and out go the daily tides, pulled by the lull of a waxing moon.

A speck of a speck on the vast river of time you say? Why I do agree! So stop making excuses and GO DO WHAT YOU’VE BEEN WANTING TO DO, but have only been stopped by your belief in your own limitations. Who says that even exists? Maybe just trying something is succeeding…..you know, the journey is the destination and all that rot! I’ll root for you. And I’ll try and do what only fear has been preventing me from doing. What have we got to lose, anyway?

Let’s go do it baby! and have fun while were at it!

Time Out Of Mind

The last 2 weeks I have written or started 5 new songs. Didn’t do it on purpose – just doing the sit down, play around with alternate tunings, and flow of creativity kind of thing.

Here’s the lyrics to a new song I wrote in the last few days. It’s kind of a Pop Rockish power ballad. This is after the first edit. Will probably do a 2nd edit to tighten up the assonance and lyrical meter – as some consonants and vowels seem in sync, but when sung don’t always flow as good as they might, etc.

Time Out Of Mind

Like a secret Joan of Arc
pulling daggers from the start
skipped the head went to the heart
catching souls on fire

If I was Michael Angelo
painting Sistines in my show
the anatomy of how this goes
would leave the crowd awe …

inspired , desired, tired
of taking no for
an answer, romancer, chancer,
the muse is here
upon you
don’t let it pawn you

When the world is running out of time
and everyone is stumbling half blind
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

If you’re still seeking for a sign
the answer to the grand design,
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

time out of mind

Cosmic light across the room,
a billion years that came too soon,
and like them I would crash into,
you to find my future

But now the futures looking bright
Because I am here with you tonight
And I’ll put up a good fight,
just to tell you that I feel…

inspired , desired, tired
of taking no for
an answer, romancer, chancer,
the muse is here
upon you
don’t let it pawn you

When the world is running out of time
and everyone is stumbling half blind
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

If you’re still seeking for a sign
the answer to the grand design,
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind
