I recorded this song back in 2007 with me singing over just an acoustic guitar. At the now defunct site where it was originally posted it quickly became my most popular tune.
I have beefed it up for this posting by adding electric guitar, bass, organ, and drums.
It’s a kind of APOLOGY to all who ever had—or ever will have—the misfortune of engaging me in an argument!
Hope you folks can enjoy it.
Be well all!
Hello, my friend, won’t you sit awhile?
I would like to know what’s on your mind.
read between the lines as you speak.
insert many things you don’t believe
Pardon me friend, there I go again;
jumping to conclusions, I offend!
don’t separate the sinner from the sin.
am tunnel vision’s victim once again;
my dear friend.
Sometimes I see clearly.
Sometimes I am blind.
Mostly it’s this tunnel vision,
messin’ with my mind.
Living with myopia’s
cold and empty stare.
If it lies outside my focus,
it simply is not there.
How you can endure me I don’t know.
You must be blessed with the patience of Job.
somethin’ that I planned to do , my friend.
am tunnel vision’s victim once again.
Picture a huge cathedral in the dark ages. For theatre, I see slavery and forced labor in the darkest places, industrial, hopeless and forsaken until heaven breaks the silence… human history is replete with examples of the bondage we live under. one thing I’m sure we all agree on is our longing for a freedom that transcends the relentless gravity that has pulled on us from the dawn of time… Merry Christmas …. I sang all parts… again when you wear all these hats (composer, engineer, performer, mixer, producer)… by the time you are finished you can’t see it clearly… so if something is glaringly wrong… let me know…… A Christmas song that I arranged and I decided to record it….
A jolly little tune by me and Tony Wisnieewski, mixed by Tom Hellsten.
