I sat for hours in front of the de-tuned piano. The fact that some notes sound wonky do not bother me as much anymore. So there I was…. playing rather magical sounding chords, yet I struggled to find words! The song remains nameless despite being complete.
Here are some of the lyrics. Published by Sony Music.
” Love’s a siren swarm on the high seas.
Just a thrown sentence where goodbyes are spread thin.
Little boy eyes that swallow everyone
Ruined smiles mirrored by the sun
Still your dream’s a treasure chest”
I really like the nostalgic and whimsical bent it has. Not too sad, not too happy. A song to hand over to Rodney in the new year, to test on an unsuspecting audience. Also, very different to Silk and Gravel. A great deal gentler.
Later still I sing…
Cherry blossom blue skies under a forgotten sea
Butterfly husks and endings burn
Fireflies worshipped by the sun
Little girl dreams that slowly come undone
Still your heart’s a treasure chest..
