THE BEST RESULT YOU GET IS A DRAW

(The floodlights know everything and rarely tell lies)

Here’s the basic lyric for a new acoustic number;

THE BEST RESULT YOU GET IS A DRAW

She dances while they quarrel

Over all the things he said

“I’m leaving you tomorrow”

He answers, “You go right ahead”

 

He wonders just what he’s done wrong

She’s not telling anyhow

He ends up looking shamefaced

She’s looking holier than thou

 

The best result you get in The Premier League of Life?

…The best result you get is a draw

You can cheat, you can take the dive

Do whatever you want, there’s no referee keeping score

 

The bits and pieces of what we’re made up of

Is the thing that makes us whole

No point in saying ‘Sorry’

When you’ve missed an open goal

 

The stand at the away end’s not a great place

To chill out and lose the blues

Eyes wide open, waiting for the final whistle

And the thing he can’t defuse

 

The best result you get in The Premier League of Life?

…The best result you get is a draw

You can cheat, you can take the dive

Do whatever you want, there’s no referee keeping score

 

No pre-match pint, no halftime pie

Kicking empty cans down an empty street

While she dances to a new tune now

Celebrating his defeat

 

Love’s like the ghost of relegation

You can’t see it, but you know it’s there

Only when the ball’s been kicked outside the ground

Does it vanish into thin air

 

A bit of music? Sampling this time. I composed this piece called ‘Decider’ a while back. It maybe fits the mood of the words.

Next, a Jarvis Cocker weird and dark number, ‘I Will Kill Again’.

I was asked me to describe the musical content of the ‘Dream Rescuer’ album.  For what it’s worth it reads like this;

For this album, I have focused on an acoustic, folky type of theme with a few electronic elements added in and not rely too heavily upon percussion to help carry the songs. True to its title, with ‘Dream Rescuer’ the aim is to convey the surreal things we dream of when asleep. The love and hate things, likewise the happy and the sad.

  1. The rhythms feel as a battle in the mind between choices. Excellent track, Sir, and the poem has potential for…guitar, perhaps? I’m curious which instrument shall bring the melody to us. Maybe that’s why Decider plays now…

  2. “The best result you get in The Premier League of Life is draw…” Interesting lyrics. But, of course, everything is about perspective. One has a choice to view his/her life as a victor or a victim – or they can choose to see it as a draw.

      1. I have read that we have to treat everyone and everything we have as Divine Gifts and so when God calls them away, we return them with all our heart and soul – because we own nothing. I am not an atheist. At the same time, I don’t believe in Creator. But if I explain to you my concept of God, it would be too long. Lol!

      2. I shouldn’t worry about explaining, Marisselee. I am, and please don’t take this the wrong way, an atheist, but I never shove down peoples faces because it’s definitely not for me to tell other people how to live. That would be wrong, a thing that hopefully I never do.

      3. I once met an atheist and upon knowing I believe in God, he said: “Well then there is no point between us talking.” Lol! A sour fellow. But I always believe each and every person reacts differently. Goodluck to your music…it is refreshing to hear.
