(Joycean.)

Summing up. Kicking off… Thinking of refined junk, of purple evenings. Filters. Apps. Stringed instruments. Thinking of Dylan, of his House of the Rising Sun. Of Jacob’s Ladder. And how one step leads to another. (But rarely in the order you would’ve imagined.) Chaos theory. Water power. Wind. Finally thinking of stepping up. Making better. Bigger. Of what a wonderful world it is. Mr Armstrong. Louis Armstrong. Until it probably ends with Trumpets. And a knock on the door. I think. Or words. Written words. Spoken words. Rockets. Shoot off to space…

Radio Is a Friend of Mine

In the workshop, (in between Christmas carols) there’s a saviour… Them voices. Sing…

(Hit the cross for First Aid Kit =>)

Oh the bitter winds are coming in
And I’m already missing the summer
Stockholm’s cold but I’ve been told
I was born to endure this kind of weather
When it’s you I find like a ghost in my mind
I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I’m not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

Now so much I know that things just don’t grow
If you don’t bless them with your patience
And I’ve been there before I held up the door
For every stranger with a promise

But I’m holding back, that’s the strength that I lack
Every morning keeps returning at my window
And it brings me to you and I won’t just pass through
But I’m not asking for a storm

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I’m not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

And yes I might have lied to you
You wouldn’t benefit from knowing of the truth
I was frightened but I held fast
I need you now at long last

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I’m not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I’m not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me
Just sing little darling, sing with me
