Slow down

There were quite a few songs that I wrote in the time between the recording of my last album ‘Blinking and Breathing’ and the start of the blog. These songs are of course also candidates for the new album, so I’m posting them to the blog so that those interested in helping us to choose can have a listen. Enjoy.

Lyrics:
I don’t know where to begin
To weed out the ailing within
Deadly and even it flows
Pulling me down as it goes

But then I slow down and I see you
Despite all my fear you have always been there
And you slow down and you see me
Through the fear

Under the evening sky
I kiss all my troubles goodbye
I rise to the smell of the wind
I cover the tracks of my sins

And then I slow down and I see you
Despite all my fear you have always been there
And you slow down and you see me
Through the fear

I slow down and I see you
Despite all my fear you have always been there
And you slow down and you see me
Through the fear

It’s easier playing this game
Believing we are what we claim
Promoting ourselves up the chain
Waxing ourselves as we wane

Then I slow down, and I see you
Despite all my fear you have always been there
And you slow down and you see me
Through the fear

  1. This is lovely. Brilliant.
    Could really be enhanced by some nice female backing vocals in the studio. Call me if you’d like to hear what I can do for your songs… i have some time off from work over the next few weeks and wouldn’t charge you!
