Silver Pillow

(Remastered 22/10/2021)

So I got me a new geetar the other week.

Named her Lala, obviously. Seemed kind of appropriate - she wears a faded gold dress and is full of chunes and mischiefs.

This is our first effort together. It was meant to be a love song. It still is, I suppose, of a sort…

But it’s also a cautionary tale.

It’s a bit like your old Nanna used tell you:

Do NOT f*ck with the fairy-folk (neither figuratively nor literally)

Silver Pillow - A A J Russe

I would not be averse
To spend an hour with you
Watching you take off
Your fairy-wings
Rest my eye upon your
Soft and naked skin
Beneath your trailing willow
Moonlight on your silver pillow

I’ll eat your apple
If you offer it to me
Touch your magic cup
And drain the wine
Pin my future on
The ecstacies you bring
Beneath the trailing willow
Kisses on your silver pillow

The wicker basket
That you fashioned for my heart
Your silken sheets
That bind me as I sleep
I never dreamt how I
Would end up in your arms
Beneath your weeping willow
Dry bones on your silver pillow

Wear it
Own this

Those who dream
Like me

Those who dream
Just like me

Those who dream
Never will wake up

This is great! What starts out as a super solid guitar riff turns out to be the start of an inventive arrangement and tasty guitar playing. Your voice is interesting too, and made better by the fact that you're clearly feeling it!
