A song gets finished after many years

Posted: April 1, 2015

Sometimes a song arrives complete, it gets written in one sitting often with music coming at the same time. But sometimes an idea seems to take forever to take shape. Some get abandoned but others stick around. They seem to know they will be finished one day and will not let the writer give up trying. Today, almost by accident, a little musical idea was the key I needed to finish  A HOLE IN TIME, a song that has been kicking around in various forms for at least five years. A love song with hints of suicide. I have no idea when I’ll get around to recording this song so in the meantime here’s the finished lyric:

A HOLE IN TIME

There’s a hole in time where you came through

Everything old, darling, you made new

There’s a hole in time

There’s a hole in time how you got here

From a point in the past when the future was clear

There’s a hole in time

 

There’s a hole in time that few can see

A hole in time brought your love to me

There’s a hole in time

There’s a hole in time like a holy scar

Between the way things were and the way things are

There’s a hole in time

 

Now you’re here I can choose to stay

All the darkness you took away

 

There’s a hole in time I tried to go through

Now I stay here because of you

There’s a hole in time
