Please listen to my newest song addition for my “Take One Project”. These recordings are works-in-progress (incomplete, raw, organic) for my next full album. I’ll choose 12 songs from this “Take One Project” and properly record them for my upcoming album.
Did You Know . . .
I’m collaborating with Google Plus Artists and featuring their photos and artwork as the thumbnail picture for my songs. Each song in the “Take One Project” will feature different artwork from photographers and artists across the globe!
The fifth artist is Paulissa Kipp. Paulissa is a Curious Lens Goddess, author and artist documenting the beautiful, curious and often overlooked. Please click here to view Paula’s portfolio.
Paulissa Kipp’s work is titled “Path, Color the Way” and is the thumbnail art for
‘Carry Me Tonight’
She was my muse – Left me dazed and confused
Like the day that we first met
She held my song – She always sang along
But the tune was just too strong
Distant as the sun – Yet she burned in my bones
Within my dreams she made a home
She never looked in to my eyes – If she did, she’d know why
I was crazy on this love
Carry me tonight – Be the air – Be the light
Carry me tonight – Sing of love – Sing of life
-Carry me tonight – Stop the world – Dry your eyes-
Engraved in my soul – This muse left me whole
A troubadour’s delight
With time on her side – She chose to abide
To the moral law of life – blinded
She longs from afar – Waiting for her bard
As she baths in every verse
Naked as this song – She lingers like a poem
I feel her in my bones
Bone of my bone – Flesh of my flesh
The story’s seldom told
Soul touches soul – Spirit touches life
This muse will arise
