I’ve just won a ticket to a lyric-writing session with Chris Difford of Squeeze! So I’ve been looking through my lyrics.

These are from one of my tracks called “Order out of Chaos” (formerly “Chaos” until I put some order to it!)

About “Chaos”
Another collab with Jip, with me adding the vibes, pad of the orient, flute and vocals.
From the original da da da da das before I came up with any lyrics, I wasn’t happy with any of the melodies. This is the result of me getting bored with it and un-muting all the practice vocal tracks! Enjoy xox
You are like an ocean to me

Searching depths that no one must see

Stormy times
You are so very calm and clear

But murky secrets you hold dear

Steamy crimes
On the surface, so receptive

Underneath, highly deceptive

Darkness falls
Emotions caught in disarray

You cannot be who you portray

The siren calls
Each drop of life

That drops into your ocean

Ripples with love
Bounds into your heart


As all is one
Currents pull you down so deeply

Chaos drags you so completely 

In your mind
But deeper still, it’s in your eyes

Your surface tells your deep desires

Forever change
Your hopes and dreams drift with the tide

Never the same, your worlds collide

You’re rearranged
Each drop of life

That drops into your ocean

Ripples with love
Bounds into your heart


As all is one

NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day 18: Castrato


From a glossary of classical musical terms

Canon? The salesman struck a chord,
despite the drone in his voice.

This would be my fifth printer,
and not a major choice.

He continued his exposition
with an impromptu display of glee,
before his intonation
turned to parody.

His pitch was espressivo
and the form was filled – hey presto!
But the printer was temperamental
and now his trill‘s castrato

Inspired by Hendrix

My tribute to Hendrix. Inspired to reblog by sonofabeach 🙂


Day 27

Prompt: Saying and the internet

I chose, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace” so I ended up with some nice Hendrix quotes to play with, amongst others 

The story of life is quicker
than the blink of an eye
The story of love is
hello, goodbye
Excuse me while I kiss the sky

There is sorry enough
in the natural way
The power anyone has;
the power of silence,
instantly connects you

When the power goes out
I’m the one who has to die
when it’s time for me to die
So let me live my life
the way I want to

Death, sleep or hibernation
Excuse me while I kiss the sky
