Song structure: 2 mins instrumental doodling followed by two verses.
This is a gift to my current friend Layla B. Her own words in an email were 'like Alice through a looking glass, but I saw through a glass darkly.'
This is probably a first version. I will most likely adapt/expand and improve if I ever return to it. I have plenty of new songs but I don't post them on the net anymore. This is an exception.
This song is another refreshingly original creation in a long line of obscure but refreshingly original songs. I am my own number one fan. And if this fact didn't exist then I'd never write another song again, except for when writing one as a gift to one of my few friends.
Why? Marlon Brando didn't particularly like the acting business. I'm not really all that into music. If it's not original or different or exceptionally genuine then I become very bored indeed. If I'm not at least one of those then my purpose as a 'musician' has failed.
Listeners, ensure you keep breeding.
Layla: THANK YOU.
like alice through the looking glass...
always watching me...
you say nothing
but life must mean somethin'
the world is broken
truth's been spoken
hold on tight now
don't let go
layla's in disguise
she's the sunset in your eyes
time is the enemy
live and die and we breed
hold on tight
don't ever let go
(return to open)
...like alice through the looking glass
