about

A love letter of sorts to my musical influences and the evolution of music, sound and song.

lyrics

Sitting in the dark – fighting the silence
Screaming and howling something like a song
Long before McCartney or Lennon came along
Did anyone imagine that yesterday would come
Sitting in the dark – waiting for science
To put us in the right place in the night sky
Who knew Michael Jackson
Would do all the things that he would do
He’d go walking on the moon – he’d go walking on

And he’s singing your ageless song
And it’s owned by everyone
And it’s older than the Sun
It’s seen Madonna as a virgin
And Mozart as a no one

We were sleeping in caves – we were waiting for fire
Oh Jimi’s gonna need it at Monterey
He’s burning his guitar – he sees something in the flames
A symbol or a Prince in purple rain – in purple rain

And he’s singing your favourite song
And it’s owned by everyone
And it’s older than the Sun
It’s slept in Chopin’s piano
And in the gold heart of Neil Young

Wheeling freely down a lost highway
And the sky is kind of blue and its Miles away
And New York is young and Sinatra he’s a boy
And everything’s beginning and nothing has been spoiled
And there’s a pink moon hanging in a sky blue sky
As the lamb lies down on Broadway for the night
With a million songs still left to write
Because Dylan’s just a twinkle in his father’s eye
Hey hey my my

And he’s singing an ageless song
And it’s owned by everyone
And it’s older than the Sun
It’s kissed the curves of Beyoncé
It’s still haunted by the sound of Cobain’s gun
Oh it’s been up over the rainbow
It told Brucie – Baby you were born to run
And it’s a cold Hallelujah in the house of the rising sun
It’s a cold Hallelujah in the house of the rising sun
It’s a cold Hallelujah and it’s only just begun
