(a day-flying moth of no fixed abode I took a snap of last Sunday)
Recent random thoughts of Zoolon;
‘Neither the light bulb nor The Moon mean a thing to a day-flying moth’
‘I think it’s unlikely that your average Viking would feel he had to check out TripAdvisor when planning a holiday abroad’.
A lot of the time I try to throw together words that one day might just make it to the top of the pile when it comes to writing a lyric. I like having a few WIP’s in the locker. It’s a hit and miss process mostly. Some compositions have legs; others don’t. I’m not sure about this one yet. Maybe – it hums OK, then again it would do, it just about rhymes.
GOODNIGHT WENDY (Even though she doesn’t get a mention I think ‘Wendy’ is in there somewhere as a metaphor)
Lost in the maze of faraway places,
I missed the writing on the wall,
Had no idea, had not a clue,
My castle walls would fall.
In the days of aimless Neverland,
Not once did I lose hope,
Said your dog could keep that shadow he stole,
Just leave me be to fly away, I’ll cope.
It’s nothing serious, don’t make a thing of it,
I can always write you another song,
Nothing too nice, nothing meaningful,
Just a song that says, ‘so long’.
Would I trade knives on the street and acid attacks,
For pirate ships and crocodiles?
Not a chance, I’m staying here in Neverland,
Where there’s no tears, just wide-eyed smiles.
Time for some music. An old one, a demo ‘Just a Shadow on a Wall’. Hope you like it.
By the way, here’s link to my album, ‘DREAM RESCUER’. It costs not much, and is available worldwide. If you fancy buying it and feel able to post a review on Bandcamp, I’d appreciate it.
