I HAVE THE TIME

‘A Long Way Down’ – French Pyrenees Time in a circle Life in a straight line Time waits for no man Park up too long and there’s a fine Time as a painting In an empty gallery Frozen in the moment What you get is what you see Time as an enemy Don’t need no

THE WORLD ENDED AT MIDNIGHT

The ceiling of my favourite Turkish restaurant Twice a week I go down to the café for a free breakfast, usually the eggs Benedict with mushrooms on the side that I’m addicted to, and as ever the old fool – I’ll not name – gives out his working man’s academic view of the world. Like

OLD & NEW

I’m usually looking out at the sea when I take a pic. This one from a summer that’s gone is looking in from the ferry in the harbour ready to leave for France  Here’s the short Guitar Tab Video from the adaption of my original song ‘Pain’.  I didn’t get around to putting it into

CLASSICAL GUITAR ADAPTATION

When it comes to classical guitar I like to keep my hand in but often other things get in the way. Not this time though. I made a new classical guitar adaptation of my song ‘Pain’  from my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album. Press the play button to listen to the new adapted rendition. It’s only 1.51

THE LONGEST SHORT WALK

‘Station at Perpignan’ by Salvador Dali I recently discovered this lyric from back in 2013 – my first year at uni. It was from a song I can’t find the demo of. I remember it was a simple acoustic ballad. Anyhow, at least I’ve got the words. Day turns to twilight on the railway platform

COUNTING STARS

‘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

MAKING DRACULA REDUNDANT

‘Bono’s Worse Nightmare’ I’ve been watching the new take on Dracula on the TV. I’m two episodes in. It’s not brilliant but I score it OK. The thing is the writers have missed a trick. To be certain to save yourself from Dracula you have to remember to carry a crucifix around with you at

THE CLOAK

‘In The Days Before Tomorrow’ I got a marketing brochure selling vitamins and an easier menopause in the post. I’ve no idea how they got my name and address. The thing was that on the front cover it said ‘START THE NEW YEAR ON THE RIGHT FOOT’. It wasn’t a lot of use to me,
