As My Sun

One day last week, with new songs at the ready we were all dressed up and no place to go. But fear not! Admiral Bunting to the rescue. So here we are down at O’Rileys where we put on a show … with no audience. But fear not! Sydpix to the rescue, he brought his video camera.

So this is As My Sun by Loudhailer Electric Company, live rehearsal at O’Rileys Hull.

Sha sha sha…
Shadows lengthen,
Future days are less,
The pale light trips up the horizon
As my sun continues to set, my sun continues to set

But I’m still part of the debate, I care about our children’s future
As the green ray lights my sky
My heart is full and I can’t forget
These fragments that will stay until the end
Going back in time, back in time, back in time … starting now

With a picture of us, the family the band
The difference that music made
(Back in time) the school bullies, me and Julie laughing anyway
(Further back) new town no friends, new town no friends, new town no friends
(Further back) Plastic snake skin boots and a feather cut
Monday evenings High Chaparral
A Zephyr parked in the driveway mirrors like angel’s wings,
Like angel’s wings, carry me away, Angel’s wings carry me away

Standing on a chair in church,
Please god, I so want a bike
A post card from my mum written in my grandpa’s hand
My grandma scooping me up taking me to hospital – on the bus

My baby brothers through the glass, fast asleep, sh sh sh sh
Shattered memories,
Future days are less,
The pale light trips up the horizon
As my sun continues to set, my sun continues to set

I came down on Christmas morning
And it was there!
