about

Not for the first time, I’m late. Sorry about that. Late last week this tune was all electric guitar and beats. It’s changed a little. Just a smidgen. On another point, and somewhat shamefully, it’s only the second TS@aW tune wth a banjo on it.

Tsk tsk…

On another point, song 50 out of 52! Woooo!

lyrics

Oh, the sun that shines a light on me,
That leads me to the sea.
The conversations I have heard,
Since I have made my peace.
The rapture in the heavens sent,
With each and every song.
No one left to whom I can confess,
But the devil and the deepest azure.

I walked down by the shoreline,
To give myself some peace.
All at once I met a friend,
He was staring out to sea.
"My friend what are you looking for?",
I asked him timidly,
And he told me he was watching for,
The darkness to begin, within himself.

I cannot hold myself in,
I cannot pinch my cheeks red,
I should be wiser than this,
But I drift.

Oh the gaps that exist on all the maps,
Till you can find your peace,
Oh the rapture in the words you spoke,
When you came quietly,
Oh, the tangled meaning of the words
As you whispered them to me,
It wrapped me up and turned me round,
And parked me perfectly.

I cannot hold myself in,
I cannot pinch my cheeks red,
I should be wiser than this,
But I drift.
