No Need To Pray For Rain

No Need to Pray for Rain

The idea to write this song came to me while I was walking into my home on a dark, cold and icy brown evening. I was thinking to myself wouldn’t it be nice to just have a massive rain storm wash this all away. Then I thought, maybe it’s best to accept the fact spring isn’t coming anytime soon and it’s not the mud-snow and ice that needs to be washed away but a change in my outlook. So there you are, a song was born with a message that can be applied universally. Sometimes we all are looking for a quick fix, for something to happen when what it really takes is a change in our hearts and minds. I know this world ain’t perfect but it’s a start. Cheers and hope you like the song!

Lyrics:

Waiting for the rain – for the rain to come – waiting for the rain to come
Waiting for the rain – for the rain to come – rain gonna wash it all away

No nothing can wash it away -except a change – a change in our hearts
That opens up our minds and that’s a start
No Need to Pray for Rain

I heard people say when those floodwaters come gonna shine like brand new
Gonna wash it away -those dirty rusty blues
But rust never dies – that much I know is true
Best to keep moving and fill our hearts with the truth

No nothing can wash it away -except a change – a change in our hearts
That opens up our minds and that’s a start
No Need to Pray for Rain

Why are we so divided? Tell me, who is pulling the strings?
We all want something baby – something to believe
But everybody’s fighting – drawing up their lines
All I am saying is try and open up your mind

No nothing can wash it away -except a change – a change in our hearts
That opens up our minds and that’s a start
No Need to Pray for Rain

Waiting for the rain – for the rain to come – waiting for the rain to come
Waiting for the rain – for the rain to come – rain gonna wash it all away

BIRD (So you say your bird can sing)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Lyrics

So you say – your bird can sing
Well I never heard one that didn’t
But flying is an entirely different thing
When there’s a cage wrapped around your wings

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?
Money can get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

We look so close to try and understand
While the moment slips away
It’s like trying to catch a bird that’s already flown
When the love you need is in your heart

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?
Denial will quell your despair
But will you know the reason?

Walking down the same old road
You think we would have learned by now
Albert Einstein he said it best
Expecting something different is not very sound

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?

Denial will quell your despair
And money will get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

So you say that your bird can sing it’s a very incredible bird
So you say that your bird can sing it’s a very amazing bird
So you say that your bird can sing it’s a spectacular bird
Now you say that your bird can sing it’s a incredible bird

Money can get you there
Money can get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

So you say – your bird can sing
Well I never heard one that didn’t
But flying is an entirely different thing
When there’s a cage wrapped around your wings

Seasonal/month appropriate song: ‘December’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I wrote this song a few years ago about as you might have guessed – December. I tried to capture the melancholy feeling of the Holiday Season through two aging lovers who have seen both the good and the bad and are now coming to terms with what lies ahead in their future. Hope you enjoy!

December – lyrics

Her light is on but does she feel?
Does she think she will never grow old?
I can’t remember the last deal that was ever made in the cold
December is always dark and the stars are seldom sold
They just hang there on display – no love for the one’s
Who stayed

Dreamers I call out your name
If I cut you will you bleed the same?
The young they live on their dreams
But the old live by their truths

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

There’s a sunset on Christmas Eve
Orange and burning just like in your dream
When you awoke you were old
And you spread your wings and smiled
You said I’m just like the wind
I’m going to hold-on to the air

I jumped with a grin
And took hold of your hand
I said…

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

Come down – come down my love
It’s Christmas Day

Seasonal (autumn) song: ‘Beauty in the Light’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Although I can appreciate the change of seasons living in upstate/Troy, New York, there is something about late fall/autumn and the shortening daylight that makes me feel a bit melancholy/depressed, almost as if I am grieving the loss of a friend from warmer days. The woman I was dating at the time I wrote this, helped me see another side to it all, as she was a big fan of winter and that certain magic that comes with a first snow, the winter solstice, a New Year beginning, bringing new possibilities to ones mind. I recorded this in my very little office/studio – which surprisingly has some decent acoustics.

Hope you enjoy,

‘Beauty in the Light’ – Lyrics

Watching the snow come down – blowing my memories

I still remember that green grass

So pure and clean

But fall is coming on – winter on its way

I feel that chill  I can’t get warm

Time to put my love away

I’m shrugging that cold away – I believe I might be fine

But you know me better there’s things that words

Just can’t define

Then you said there’s beauty in the light

All the way – from the stars down to our eyes (from the stars to our eyes…)

So we’ll walk hand in hand – through the cold and damp

Spring is coming it always does

Maybe we can make it there

But you said why worry – about something that’s so far off

When there’s beauty in the air

And magic in our hearts

Then you said there’s beauty in the light

All the way – from the stars down to our eyes (from the stars to our eyes…)
