A HANDFUL OF STARS

‘Reaching to the Stars’ photo by Ares Nguyen

How can you run before you can walk?
How can you speak before you can talk?
How can you listen before you can hear?
How can you cry without just one tear?


How can you dream before you’re asleep?
How can you laugh when you ought to weep?
How can you touch before you can feel?
How do you know what you’re seeing is real?


How can you hate before you know love?
How can the eagle fly with the dove?
How can the mountains part for the sea?
How come in life’s prison you still feel free?


How can you try and yet always lose?
How can you cut and never get bruised?
How can you ache but never get hurt?
How come love rubs your face in the dirt?


The answers are hiding but easy to find
The clues all alive in the back of your mind
One day you’ll stumble never to fall
Don’t rely on the words ‘love conquers all’
Mad as it sounds go grab a handful of stars
Neptune, Pluto, Venus and Mars
Never let go and hold them tight to your heart
Let yesterday’s darkness take you back to the start

HUNTING ALONE

Surreal Art by HolgaJen

HUNTING ALONE


It’s only the end
It’s where you descend
When you can’t be bothered to speak
It’s a lazy old street
And the people you meet
Are either just boring or freak


‘What made you this way?’
That’s all they can say
But you don’t want to hear anymore
You’re out on your own
Timed out and alone
And you’re eyes; they just stare at the floor


‘I’m reaching the end’
That’s the message you send
When you’ve got nothing to say
In this life game of chess
The key to success
Is actually wanting to play


A long time ago
You put on a show
And made it look like you care
Now you hunt alone
All the chances you’ve blown
But you just don’t want to go there


You keep counting down time
You don’t say a word, you just mime
Love hangs by the tiniest thread
Your ship is running aground
And the port you were bound
Remains some lost place in your head


Time for music to fit in – I hope – with the words. This one from my Rainbow’s End album.

DEAD DAYS, NEW IDEAS

piano1


What does a musician do when the virus has caused the market to be as good as dead? In my case it’s about thinking of other ways of using my music in a way that has a purpose. In this case a marketing purpose – a promo video with backing music for authors. 


Better put, a creative marketing video for authors about to launch their new book, or wish to give a bit of extra oomph to a book they already have out there. For example, the one below I made for MIKE STEEDEN’S  latest book.


The Blue-Eyed Cat Promo Video from Mike Steeden on Vimeo.


Basically, all I need from an author is the book front cover and a script, say, of the book’s blurb along with audio, chosen by the author, in the form of a song or instrumental from my easy to access portfolio on BANDCAMP – all I’ll need is the song title. This way you don’t have to go paying a fortune for use of a musician’s copyright as you would if, say, you wanted background music from someone you’ve heard on Spotify or such like.


Anyhow, from that collection of book cover, author’s words and my music I can put the lot together into a video for just £35. Should an author want an original instrumental to match the mood of the book and own that piece of music for themselves then the fee is £100 simply because I’d have to compose, produce and mix and the masterpiece.


If you’re interested you can email me on this link PROMO VIDEOS FOR AUTHORS  or via the link at the top of the blog.


Here’s another one I also made earlier, again trying them out on MIKE STEEDEN

Lastly, if you ever require sound for a marketing video you are making yourself or commissioning elsewhere should you find anything from my music portfolio that fits the bill or if you want me to create a bespoke composition just for you then let me know. For a inexpensive fee, to be agreed, I’d be happy to help out.
