A song about depression, mental illness and how to deal with it.

I saw a short article stating that the lockdown would rob Londoners of the chance to see a display of Andy Warhol’s wigs. There was an attached shot of 3 wigs. I think Warhol’s art is interesting and certainly caught a zeitgeist. Damian Hirst on the other hand..

Friend

4 Comments

An old song about an old friend who died a long time ago but is still missed. 

 

Remember the words you spoke in your own quiet way.

Remember the songs we wrote but never played.

It seems so long ago, an airport lounge where

I said, “So long, my friend. Till we meet again …”

Didn’t know goodbye meant so long

Didn’t know forever would mean so soon.

You left in love, you left in peace.

What more could we need?

Oh, our friend,

till we meet again …

We’ve seen you laugh and cry

Those times we stayed up all night

And sometimes have too much

And swear never again – till the next time

Oh the next time …

Oh, our friend, we’ll miss you

Till we meet again …

 

(For Michael.)

 

Big Man With A Little Thing

3 Comments

Hey, Big Man with your little thing

Don’t you know you don’t own everything

Hey, Big Man with your little thing

You’re a strapping lad but you don’t own everything

 

He’ll wiggle it about, wave it in your face.

Ask you if you’d like to try a little taste.

Hell, say no. You don’t know where it’s been.

But we all know it’s a dirty little thing.

 

It’s like two Tic Tacs and a little piece of string

Like his little finger, he likes it in his ring

And we all know, and we all sing:

Hey big man you got a dirty little thing. 

 

He’s a big man, with your little thing

Don’t you know you don’t know everything 

Hey, Big Man with your little thing

You’re a strapping lad but you don’t know everything

Hey, we all know.

Tell him where to go

 

He’s the old frat boy, the alpha male 

His favourite toy is his own little tail. 

He struts like a cock, he intimidates

He hasn’t got a problem with a little date rape. 

 

He’ll probably end up on a Wall Street

And he’ll fit right in with the rest of the creeps

In his dreams he’s the king of kings

But we all know he’s just a dirty little thing

 

Hey, Big Man … 

 

Choose your drugs with care, my child

A dark little song about those who lose themselves in drugs. Cheers!

 

 

Choose your drugs with care, my child

And pray you never need the gods to help you out

Because by then it’s too late – there’s no way out.

Ask your Mother – she knows best – she’ll lead you to a place of safety, hold you in her whisper stories, love you even if there’s little left to love …

 

Mommy’s boy is beautiful but lost, he left his breath behind when he left home, forgot to leave a trail of sweets so he could find his way back in the darkness he was cursed: a mundane spell was cast and turned him into yet another morsel for  the old witches’ feast …

 

And though the witches fought among themselves, the boy could only watch as time ran out, he slipped away and found so many more with nowhere else to run and so he lost himself amongst the others and he couldn’t tell where they ended and he began, so he slept his little life away … 

 

When there was nothing left he heard a whisper story breathe somewhere and something in the nothing that was nowhere slipped into the memory of his Mother’s arms, he heard her distant prayer, heard her say: 

 

Choose your drugs with care, my child, and pray you never, ever need the gods … 

Because by then it’s too late – there’s no way out.

 

Ask your Mother – she knows best – she’ll lead you to a place of safety, hold you in her whisper stories, love you even if there’s little left to love …

BURNING THE MIDNIGHT OIL

4 Comments

A new song

Did this one on my own

KC

It’s 5 AM in the morning

I’m burning the midnight oil

There’s coffee to stop the yawning

Just don’t care about a recoil

 

I decide to take a walk

A starlit night in the park

I’m in the mood for a talk

But there’s no-one here in the dark

 

Refr: Neon lights under a full moon

The distant sound of cars

My mind starts roaming

Way beyond the stars

 

I’m back in my room and take a drink

My mind is easing down

This is the best time to think

When there’s no-one around

 

Refr.

 

Brdg: I’m burning the midnight oil, burning the midnight oil (2x)

 

It’s 10 AM in the morning

It’is time to hit the hay

The sun came up without a warning

I think I’ll sleep all day

 

Refr.

 

moving on

Third track from my feel “EP.” These are all tracks I worked on during the last few months of 2019. Very basic guitar, bass, drums and vocals with king od a dark, slightly early 80s Goth feel.

This is the second song from my feel “EP.” 

Do you even call a digital collection of songs an “EP” or “LP” anymore?

Lyrics

this hollow world

 

©2019 Joseph Gurner

 

see the sunset

on a hollow world

take the devil

at his word

 

lie to the stars

trick your fate

lay in your ashes

accept your fate

 

send the world away

send the world away

send the world away

this hollow world

 

see the sunset

on this hollow world

in the shadows

shed your skin

 

feel the madness

deep inside

embrace the madness

embrace your world

 

send this world away

send this world away

send this world away

send this world away

 

this hollow world

 

see the sunset

on your hollow world

hide your devils

deep inside

 

close your eyes

close your eyes

close your eyes

close your eyes

 

send this world away (close your eyes)

send this world away (close your eyes)

send this world away (close your eyes)

 

send this world away (close your eyes)

First track and title track of a five-tune “EP” I’ve been working on since last fall.

Lyrics:

Feel

 

©2019 Joseph Gurner

 

Why do I burn

Why do I burn

Why do I burn

when I can’t have you

 

Why do I fall

Why do I fall

Why do I fall

When I feel your touch

 

You make me feel

you make me feel

You make me feel

the way I feel when I’m alone with you

 

Why do I want

Why do I want

Why do I want

When I make love to you

 

You make me feel

you make me feel

You make me feel

the way I feel when I’m alone with you

 

Where is my heart

Where is my heart

where is my heart

when I’m away from you

This is an old tune (2013) that I decided to polish up and breath some new life into. Its a colaboration with my old friend Marcelo Teles.

Hearts of Flesh.

Lyrics:

Hearts of flesh and eyes stead fast

Countless grains of sand passing through the hour glass

Behold before us a field of endless grass

Take the first step and chase the last   

There’s no mountains for us to climb

No angry sea’s to sail across

Above the field the haunting wind is calling 

Countless grains of time keep falling.

This is a remixed version of a very 80s version of Jingle Bells I did back in 2013. Basically cleaned up the mix and replaced the drum loops with drummer.
