about

Based on true to life incident.
All the words fell out one day, in 1 sitting, unexpectedly
3 months later, picked up guitar and unbelievably, the music emerged
Jaysus!

lyrics

Don't let me write any songs anymore
about blue skies, fresh breeze, waters glisten, snowflakes freeze
The moon high up, candlelight sup, cozy blankets, singin' fine;
laughin' loud, this heart of mine
Don't wanna hear any more this time ... about you

Hey
what did i say, get out of my head, get up and roll over
out of my heart, A million things to do, the kids for a start
no room for a heartbreaker like some
gotta find myself in this disheveled old home
Yeah i'm talkin bout you

Remember when we met, sun was high, light was strong
I never knew you wanted any more than to sing me your song
La la la ... la la la ... uh huh....

And when i got over resistance tide,
we let the good times ride and ride and ride
Just how great, i couldn't relate Never could state
what heaven on earth was, just first rate
and all because ... of you (ooh)

how could you - once friend, once my lover,
wise man, child clown trickster traitor find the golden key
unlocking silver thread that i'd held at gunpoint to my head ?
It was you.
And i'm sick of thinking ... about you

I didn't think and in a wink like dirty ink
my life was soiled, destroyed
cos you weren't in it
I didn't think and in a wink lik

ooh, ohhh, oh ho..

(instr solo)

I knew i lost a human soul ~
anam cara*, best friend, my companion
while on earth
we toil
Now i go on my way alone
and we toil
But i must go on my way alone

An' i felt so loved like life wanted me to love
and i felt like me ~ the me i always knew (or wanted to be !)
An' i rev up courage to share my songs (these songs)
but i aint gonna write anymore about you,
about you (Thank you)
about you (i loved you)
... You, oh, about you, ah ...

*anam cara = soulmate (in the Irish language) or best friend;
someone special anyway
