A HANDFUL OF STARS

‘Reaching to the Stars’ photo by Ares Nguyen

How can you run before you can walk?
How can you speak before you can talk?
How can you listen before you can hear?
How can you cry without just one tear?


How can you dream before you’re asleep?
How can you laugh when you ought to weep?
How can you touch before you can feel?
How do you know what you’re seeing is real?


How can you hate before you know love?
How can the eagle fly with the dove?
How can the mountains part for the sea?
How come in life’s prison you still feel free?


How can you try and yet always lose?
How can you cut and never get bruised?
How can you ache but never get hurt?
How come love rubs your face in the dirt?


The answers are hiding but easy to find
The clues all alive in the back of your mind
One day you’ll stumble never to fall
Don’t rely on the words ‘love conquers all’
Mad as it sounds go grab a handful of stars
Neptune, Pluto, Venus and Mars
Never let go and hold them tight to your heart
Let yesterday’s darkness take you back to the start


Here’s ‘Uplifting Groove – C Mixolydian’ (Guitar Jam Backing Track) from Guitar Jam, Vol. 1 – Backing Tracks by Zoolon Audio (that’s me!). I hope you enjoy;


Any musicians out there looking for BACKING TRACKS I’ve both high quality 20 track, 3 hour+ albums ‘Volume One’ and ‘Volume Two’ available to download on BANDCAMP at just £6.50 each or foreign currency equivalent. Also, if anyone feels the need for background music then maybe these numbers will work for them.


If you’re interested in my inexpensive PROMO VIDEOS FOR AUTHORS  hit the link here or aim at the one at the top of this blog.


As ever, if any poets out there are interested in having their poems turned into songs then click here to check it out: POETRY TO SONG


If you are looking for all my other music then you’ll find it to download on BANDCAMP and at AMAZON when searching ‘Zoolon Audio Albums’or you can stream and/or make a playlist of it on SPOTIFY


If you’re interested in my book of lyrical verse, ‘LOOKING FOR REASONS’ (above) is available on Amazon, either as a paperback or on Kindle. The purchase prices have been cut right back, hence they’re not expensive. On Kindle Unlimited it’s even free!


If you’re thinking about new t-shirts, leggings, mugs and much more for yourself or as a gift, here’s my collection you might be interested in ZOOLON’S MERCHANDISE
