“Be Gone”

Be gone my love of last, I’ve got new life to live; be gone, be gone, our day has passed, I gave you all I give, yes I gave you all I give.

Be gone, darkness and shallow breath, all trouble do-oo dwell; be gone my guilt and unworthiness; I smash your cruel, cruel spell, yes I crash your cruel, cruel, spell.

I’m singing…

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la….   I’m singing, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la…

Be gone low self esteem, denial of your self, a coach without a team, alone upon a shelf… all alone upon a shelf

I’m singing…

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la….   I’m singing, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la…

la la la la la la la lala la la…

…oh keep singing la la la la la la la la la la. we’re singing

Be gone helpless depression, hyper-vigilance… be gone all self affliction, no need for addiction, no need for this addiction!!

We’re singing  …ohh we’re singing we’re singing . la la lala la la la la la la.

we’re singing la la la la la la la,,,  whatever……………..

 

“Healing”


I like this recording because it is so organic… I let my fingers move with the sound I was hearing from the synthesizer I had at the time.

Poems – One

1. “AS I MELT”

As I melt I become real
Fantasy, thin and weak..
Reality, Strong and full..
Act one is over..
Act two is written in my heart.

 

2. “SNOW”

Much Snow fell today
I rested and read my books
Fluffy white and warm

 

3. “You Already Know”

Ask me your questions
I won’t have the right answers
You already know

1970 – 1980

“In My Mind”

Drum machine pop. Done in my Cambridge closet, on Tape.

“Come On”

I love how raw and live this recording is.  Dave Kiswiney recorded it in a church in Gloucester Massachusetts.

Larry Palmer on Guitar, Terry Breeze on Drums, Dave Kiswiney on Bass and me on piano/vocal

“Because I Love You”

I remember; I was in the Choir loft in the Blue Church in Gloucester where I lived at the time.  I had a guitar in hand and I wanted to tell about real true love.  I thought the test of true love is if the person you love doesn’t love you so you understand and let your love go.

“Anymore”

1976 or so. This was recorded live in the Blue Church in Gloucester.  Dave Kiswiney on bass, Larry Palmer on guitar and Terry Breeze on Drums. Read the rest of this entry
