This one was started a couple of years ago – but it needed a substantial bit of rewriting to make it actually singable. It ended up about an elemental nature spirit looking after its minions. However the original inspiration was getting up in…

Total bit of fanciful fairy-tale fantasy - water nymph probably. Anyway - it doesn't go too well for her. See you should never mix mortal with the immortal... Lyrics: If you see me floating in the water reach me down a hand and pull me…

Written for a song challenge. We were given the theme of a name found on an item, carved on a tree, on a street sign - whatever. Then off we raced all in our different directions, just to see where different songwriters would end up. I chose to…

Could you please add the lyrics. I'm a bit hard of hearing and I'm missing some words.

I have been writing songs since I was a teenager, singing at pub sessions since I was in my thirties, open mics and busking since my early fifties. Songwriting and performing have become a bigger part of my life as I have got older, and since retiring early a few years back it has become the thing that most defines me. I write my songs for myself, but am the proverbial pig in dirt when someone else likes them too. Big caveat : My songs are stories and musings - and most have no trace of the autobiographical about them - mind you, if they had I would have had an interesting life!
