‘Those Who Stayed Behind’

One time on a moonlit night
You sat there counting stars
Asked me how it was that heaven
Was on the other side of Mars

Darkness, I can’t do without you
Self-doubt, that’s much the same
I’ve lost myself inside of Pan’s shadow
A place where life is just another pointless game

Cut it and the world cuts it with you
Crash then they’ll never know who you are
Hang around in twilight’s embers
And you’re just another abandoned star

You can hear me but you’ll never see me
In those shadows I’ve a bit part in a film noir
Listen out for the sad chords I’m playing
Listen out for my best friend, my new guitar

A song still waiting for its place on an album. I can’t believe that I wrote this number 6 years ago. Time plays tricks on me. Some of you might have heard it before, but it hasn’t had an outing for ages. New songs are on their way, but for now ‘Busking in Berlin’, a song about interrelationships between members of a band of buskers. I hope you enjoy;

    1. Thanks Lady Yasmin. Everything I write is with an idea that one day I might want to use it, or adapt it for a song. That’s why I write in verse and don’t think, for example, I could write in so many types/genres of poetry that you do brilliantly. I need words that bounce along and mostly sing in my head when I’m composing. Thanks again ~ George
