about

I did an adolescent thing the other day.... I watched JUSTIFIED, the whole series, and somewhere, well, I can tell you right when it happened: when Raylan was finally shot to shot with his Arch Enemy and Rival to Love, and his neck muscle twiched! Yes, that was when I fell head over heels in love with Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens... What a dreamy time it was, until I was able to unravel myself and finally sit here and post the video... It was incredible! But, ne'rmind all the fantasy and the bump back down to earth! I was inspired to write a song! At first, of course, I reached for a song that I knew, and Budapest by Jethro Tull was the order of the day, but, it was written from a male point of view, and frustrated, I one day sat down and wrote my own lyrics, as I viewed the whole scenario from a lofty height, where no one could touch me... What an unexpected and strange experience! But, it really happened - ALL IN THE MIND, and it has a happy ending and a new beginning. Dreams are good friends! I did ask around about falling in love with strangers, and people say it happens, and that it's healthy to have a fantasy. I'm not so sure, but if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't miss that moment for all the tea in China! Falling in love doesn't happen easily with me, so I was happily taken by surprise! I guess that's the 'madness of love', but, if music be the food of love, play on, I've heard it said...

ONE
You took pity on the dusty shore
You found while wandering/wondering
And kept me happy for a while
You broke the walls that bound me
Keeping me soundly
Tame
And you did it in style

I heard a clamour in the distance
Proclaiming the great wonder
That love had stopped by their way
While I have memories of love and lust
They’re slowly turning into dust
As I watch the horizon and play

CHORUS

Is there a word to hail that you’re passing
Perhaps even of me
If you look in your mirror
I’m laughing
‘Cause I’m right where I’m needed to be

TWO

It might take three hundred years or more
When next you pass by my door
And I wonder just what you’ll see
Will I still be remembering
The fires that were embering
My wooden soul to a dream

I shall try to be softer
When I look to you Brother
But it’s hard when you act like a Lord
I can’t help to bleed with children and families and their livestock
Who’ve coloured your great mighty sword

CHORUS

It wasn’t that which had weakened my chains
Your command not leave still remains
Written in golden dust
The moment of love and lust
Lies blurred under my tear stains

THREE

Three hundred years have passed
And there she sees you’ve come at last
And watches her fires of aflame
Your command drew her heart away
She turns to a bright new day
With hope anew to proclaim

That love is not what she thought it was
And that’s now all because
She’s entered her new phase of life
In one dream real to waking
All the love yous were making
She felt not like a wife

CHORUS

And now we watch you go on
As you reach and teach every son
To keep her and hold her
To crackle spit and smoulder
Until the next time he comes along
FOUR

BREAK

CHORUS

Lover why won’t you stay
Why must we all fade to grey
I hear you tell me understand
I only have this one command
That you do your very best
And stay

FIVE

There is only one lover
You won’t find another
He just takes on a name with a smile
You can follow as he flies away
Searching for him night and day
But he’s really gone for a while

Now I’m grateful for my chains and such
And my husband that I love so much
I don’t long or wish for you here
For you never really left my soul
We’re all one of a bigger whole
When you left you took away my fear

CHORUS

Close as the mirror
Where make up will wither
Whatever you dream and scheme
No one can hold him
There’s only one smouldering
Fire he can bring

(Too many times we try to force love, but in truth, it only happens beautifully when it's a gift from the Universe... inside one's soul...)

released November 20, 2016
I composed the song, and Graeme Robertson kindly helped me out with a drum track... I did the guitar and the rest... Not bad for a kinda one man show!
I have asked Graeme if he would like to collaborate, as he and I are a duo called TRONADA, so hopefully that will be in the mix one of these days.
