LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #49: “Blood Spilled On Your Strings”. This is a song hot off the press, just completed today. It’s a big fat metaphor. See the video for details. I hope it resonates. The lyrics are below:
If there’s no blood on your strings,
then you’ve never really played:
Consanguinated metal makes the grade. Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #48: “Snow-Capped Mountain”. I originally began writing this song more than 12 years ago. Now, after some additional verses and a vocal bridge, it has become appropriate. Elders are not being valued for their wisdom, knowledge and experience. This song is an anthem against ageism! I hope it resonates with you. Please click above to listen… and share. Here are the full lyrics… Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #47: “It’s Never the Final Song!” I wrote this unexpected song on a deeply contemplative walk in the Alps last week. The story is in the video. The lyrics are below. Hope it is helpful and resonates. Love to one and all…
I thought I’d written all I had to say —

“IF YOU CAN ANSWER ‘YES’!”, Living-Room Video #45. This is a song about real connection in relationships.

I would even say that this song is a vivid example of verbal foreplay. (That should freak a few folks out! 😉). . Click above to watch the video. Here are the lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »
🎞LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #44🎞: “Just Rise Above It All”. This is a video of a song I just wrote. It woke me up the night before last and wouldn’t let me go back to sleep until I’d written down the first verse. I finished it yesterday. I hope it gives comfort to some. Here are the lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »
LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #41: “The Slide”. Here’s a new song just completed the other day. It is a “shorthand song” (i.e. a minimalist lyric), which is a social commentary on current affairs which have been building up for millennia. It would have a big “epic” feel in a live concert, but here it is the cut-down, unplugged, acoustic, living-room edition. I hope it speaks to you. Here are the lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »
