Hush Now

about

This track is a dark lullaby expressing troubled thoughts. It is expressed through layers of cello, piano, guitar and vocals gently lilting in 6/8 time.

lyrics

Blue skies clear up the day
Why can't I say what's on my mind?
Murky as a muddy stream
Unravelling thoughts in frustrating dreams.

Can you see past glassy eyes?
Who is best to turn to when in need?
Pushing away is my only defence
Forced to live by your rules of persuasion.

Too weak to fight for my worth
Too weak to question your intentions
Too weak to work out my calling
Too weak to resist the embrace and feel the addiction......of our connection

Hush now confused mind
Hush now and sleep easy
Hush now sleep easy
Hush now

The silence speaks volumes
Rest easy broken heart
Don't go searching for an answer
When the day throws a challenge close your eyes: look to the skies
Forge a smile for the day
Those who love you will see your need
Offer all you can in good deeds
Strengthen your soul when forced into situations

Too weak to fight for my worth
Too weak to question your intentions
Too weak to work out my calling
Too weak to resist the embrace and feel the addiction......of our connection

Hush now confused mind
Hush now and sleep easy
Hush now sleep easy
Hush now
