First light won’t you break?

Upon that crest and upon it’s wake

So that I might live to take

One last look at you.

Oh my love I’ve lost my way

Rudderless in the unknown depths

Bear me north and guide me on – home

Stars in the depths of space

Blue as far as the mind can face

Bear me not in your cold embrace.

Let me glimpse the dawn

All the love I had to give

All bound up in the murky mists of time

And when tomorrow comes I’ll be gone.

My heart sets its sights on you…

I’ve used creative license this week. The above lyrics are from a song I wrote called ‘North.’ If you’re so inclined to have a listen, here it is:

Written for: Friday Fictioneers

  11. Lovely work. Soft quality in the voice took me right back to Donovan’s fine and ageless grace with a song. If you have a minute I’d love to know exactly what kind of guitar you are playing.

      Hi – Thanks for listening – It’s recorded on a Taylor (Some of the other songs are recorded on a Gibson Hummingbird).
