Its usually about song 10 before I start getting this soppy but you have to go with the flow. An unashamed love letter to my other half but with a healthy dose poetic license - no I’m not quite so decrepit yet, although my hair is very much already grey.
Just acoustic guitar (Tanglewood AW1000), vocals and Xiphone - a semi-toy xylophone that I picked up at an antique fair.....
Save me, I’m drowning
In the sea of love I have for you
I find it astounding
That you have these same feelings too
These days I can’t venture too far
And there’s a pain in my neck
When I look up at the stars
But I still do
My heart doesn’t beat quite as fast
And my mind’s not so quick when it comes to the past
But I hope that it can last
For another year or maybe two
Help me, I’m falling
But at least I know that you’re right there
It’s so reassuring
Because I have nobody else who cares
No they’re not tears in my eyes
Just light makes me squint
When I look up to the sky
Honestly it’s true
Sometimes I can’t catch my breath
Can you say that again?
I must be going deaf
But whatever time I have left
I’ll spend with you
Yes my hair’s going grey
And sometimes I forget
what I was going to say
Are the lights beginning to fade
Or is it me?
