MELISSA CRIES FOR CANDY

‘I risked a pollen attack and a bout of hay-fever in the back bee friendly garden for this. Why?’ 


Like last week another older song, not yet to appear on an album. Recorded back in 2014 in a lonely bedroom one dark night, a song about day to day life. Lyrics first, the song itself follows on behind along with a pic of my unusual meal (Why+1?)


Storm clouds on the horizon
No red sky tonight
The wind blows away the magic
Of a starry, starry night


Melissa cries for Candy
Candy dreams of John
John is suicidal
On how it all went wrong


Larry plays the old guitar
Kate the mandolin
And Finn plays the accordion
They’re busking in Berlin


It’s a game of names and fortunes
A game played out in time
A game of life that ends in death
A mountain we must climb


And John’s looking out for Sally
Candy’s dreaming on
Melissa took an overdose
She does not belong here


Larry plays the old guitar
Kate the mandolin
And Finn plays the accordion
They’re busking in Berlin


Candy is the blinkered one
John has the broken heart
Larry’s getting on with life
Melissa fell apart – she fell apart, she fell apart


Finn, she won a battle
Kate, she lost a war
Candy is still dreaming of
What are we fighting for?


Storm clouds on the horizon
No red sky tonight
The wind blows away the magic
Of a starry, starry night


Larry plays the old guitar
Kate the mandolin
And Finn plays the accordion
They’re busking in Berlin, they’re busking in Berlin

‘A Charcoal Cheddar Cheese Jacket Potato – like I said, Why+1?’


Lastly SOUND-WAVE leggings from ZOOLON’S MERCHANDISE  – not that I wear them myself, of course. Just another design I thought up. There’s a load more things on Zoolon’s merchandise – link above and at the side.

    1. Apparently it’s a seriously expensive cheddar cheese. The thing is it tastes just like strong regular cheddar. I don’t really understand. I guess with me being colour blind, black is a colour I know well. By the way, I didn’t buy it – no way! ~ George

    1. Thanks, I only just found this one. It was around the time Lou Reed died I composed this one. I can’t do Lou Reed style but like the way he fitted in multi characters to some songs. Berlin came into it because one of his albums was called ‘Berlin’. Thanks again ~ George

      1. It wasn’t a WP issue for once. Someone had decided to hit a ‘like’ on every blog post I’d ever posted. It pretty much meant that comments prior to that fell of the end of the panel. It’s odd what some people do!
