the shore demo

For those of you who asked to hear the music to The Shore here ’tis. Please bear in mind the fact that I recorded it into my laptop without fancy equipment…seriously….and in fact, the whirring sound you hear in the background at some point is my computer’s hard drive. Nice touch, huh? I will also tell you that yes, that is my fine beginner guitar work there. It’s coming along.

One day, I will master this and I shall rule the world of technological things….either that or I will hire someone to do this for me.

THE SHORE 

Maybe a little house in Bristol

Maybe a palace city bound

I only have this moment now to find the way

Maybe four walls and a dirt floor

Will simply do the trick

I only have this moment now to work it out

 

 

Maybe I do not own this voice

And perhaps I never did

I only have this single word upon my tongue

Maybe it isn’t mine to say now

And perhaps it never was

And that will make all the difference

 

Because I am not the shore

I move, I feel, I shift

And that is just enough to do

As long as I am not the shore

I move, I feel, I shift

I drift

further out

 

 

Maybe the tide will rise to choke me

Maybe the waters will recede

I only have this sketchy plan ahead

Maybe a boat will come to get me

And bring me to my knees

And that will make all the difference

 

 

Because I am not the shore

No matter how far out I get

I see it there before me

and I know

I am not the shore

I move, I feel, I shift

I drift far away

And wonder

How I got here?

With my tired limbs and lack of air

And sky above

 

Maybe a little house in Bristol

Maybe a palace city bound

I only have this moment now

To swim for it

  1. I can say, “I heard it first!” — in a hotel room in Grand Rapids.

    It’s still amazing.

    Chrissie Hynde ain’t got nothin’ on you, babe. (Hey, when I just looked her up to double-check that spelling, I found out she was born in Akron, Ohio! — Lots of good things out of Ohio, eh??) 🙂

  2. Thanks, PPPJ! You are officially on my “validation” payroll..you’ll get yer 39cents in the mail quarterly. : )

    Ahna…YES! You got the sneak preview and I’m flattered to be compared to Chrissie Hynde for sure. Eh, oh, way to go Ohio.
