SeaChange

iconoclast

I was dreaming one night, and this song came, it was part of what I was going through in the dream. I woke up with the emotion, the words, and the melody still going. Got out of bed (Like 4AM! ugh!) went down to the studio and recorded the melody. took it to Steve. As soon as I started to sing the first few lines, he stopped me and said, “wait, wait - and played this music (minus all the parts at once of course)Everything on this one is played by Steve.
SeaChange
I heard a sea change whisper and I had to go
Dressed in foolskin leathers and a jesters cap
I stepped up and I thought to show
Hit a heavy elevator headed straight below
Ah lord what fools we mortals be
The way we close our eyes and say we see

Chorus
Dreamers do their dreaming
Doers work towards their ends
Some where in the middle
Is where we make amends

I hit a path lookin’ for the open road
Runnin’ on autopilot and my heart laid flat
I thought there was something and thought it showed
Funny how life can tell you what you don’t know
Ah lord what fools we mortals be
When we close our eyes and say we see

Chorus
A new sunrise brought me from my sleep
A million miles gone and back
Carried this tune heard in my dreams
And a whispering nothing is as it seems
Ah lord what fools we mortals be
When we close our eyes and say we see

Chorus

Living day to day can eat your life
Rob your heart and take your soul
Paint your world with the colors strife
You with the brush in your hand to make it right
Ah lord what fools we mortals be
When we close our eyes and say we see

Chorus

Bridge

Somewhere. ………….
Someday. ……………
Sometime. ………….
Thats no way. …….
To live your life. …
You know. ……….
Now is all you get.
Gonna take a Sea change turn
Gonna take a new way down
Gonna make a..
Sea change

(Break)

I heard a sea change whisper and I had to go
Dressed in foolskin leathers and a jesters cap
I stepped up and I thought to show
Hit a heavy elevator headed straight below
Ah lord what fools we mortals be
The way we close our eyes and say we see

Ah lord what fools we mortals be
We’re the only ones we do deceive
Ah what fools we mortals be
It’s only ourselves we do deceive

My father refers to it as having a “radio” turn on late at night. The words, the melody, music just flow out and you cannot stop until it is finished. Great song ;)

This gets me right where I am living today! Thanks!

I am completely with you on the “I have to get out of bed RIGHT NOW and capture this” thing, ha! Have to say, if that’s how you usually create, then it’s working. Great song-writing, wonderfully pro performances from all musicians, and I love your voice! I’m not usually a fan of longer tracks, but you kind of take me along with you, and I want to keep listening. Liking your Indiana Jones avatar also…but that’s not important. :-)

So I just picked up my second cup of coffee this morning and clicked on this jewel. What a great way to start my day. Top notch from the music to the vox to the production. Straight to favorites.
