RELICS OF THE PAST

black horse‘Black Knight, Dark Day’

GET LOST

A strange voice talking at me

Says they know all there is to know

Forgetting I’m not an android

Me? I’m just a one man show

 

You can walk me to the cliff edge

I might surprise you and take the leap

One thing is for certain

I’ll never go begging at your feet

 

You say Suzie was once a vampire

Jane she played away

Emma got lost in triumph

Jessie, she had her say

 

I’m looking out for dinosaurs

And other relics of the past

I could have told you black was white

But you never asked

A piano piece I composed a while back. It’s called ‘Prohibition’. Hope you enjoy;

To brighten the day a pic from the farm cafe where I had breakfast earlier;

Best ever Rolling Stones number? I’m not a great fan but I like this one;

    1. Thanks, Ka. Sadly, Sydney is bossed around big time by Jeff the stunningly beautiful black pony…I thought was a female at first, then spotted I was wrong…who also bosses Ted the Donkey. I think Sydney should be moved to a field of regular horses so he can make a few mates and start to enjoy himself a bit ~ George

    1. Thanks, I appreciate that. Music is my motivation and always will be, but venturing out of my safety zone is something I enjoy although I don’t always get right. Thanks again ~ George

  1. Hi George, first time to comment but I had too. The line “You can walk me to the cliff edge I might surprise you and take the leap” was exceptional. Admire your style and music. Plus you added my favorite Stones tune. 😉 Have a great day. Daniel

    1. Thanks, Chris. I’ve got the Prohibition number on my Dream Rescuer album, I put it in for variation between a couple of songs. Glad you liked it. I’m still not sure about the Stones but this number I really like. I think another, Ruby Tuesday is good. If I did covers I’d certainly do a retro take on that one. Thanks again ~ George

  2. Beautiful piano composition, George.
    Paint It Black was one of the first Rolling Stones songs I ever heard, or rather, noticed, since I was quite young at that time (1966). It was a great time to live, and there was great music around. It was a peaceful era – people appreciated and enjoyed peace.

    1. Thanks. I do like this number. It work on all levels. I think my old man never left the 60’s; just grew older instead. He says more or less what you’ve just said about it. Thanks again ~ George

      1. Thanks, Stella. After days and days of zero creativity I was on a new song and brilliant I just added laid back piano and it’s working – I hope , it is ~ George

  3. Curious: Reading your lyric, all I could think of was Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” and Peter Gabriel’s “Frontiers.” It’s the slow build, I think. I could imagine your piano piece as a sort of guitar set, too, like a dialogue. Lovely work as always 🙂
