Thank you for your interest

(Peter Lastima)

A road song, possibly in need of a wistful country tune. The traveller comes to yet another town, yearns to say, but knows it is their fate to keep heading on down the road. This draws upon road-trips in America years ago - small towns, motels, bars - but could apply just as well to any of the three other continents across which I have made sporadic and poorly-planned expeditions.

Another evening on the road Another little town, Another little episode, That wants to slow me down, I know that there’s a thousand things That I could stay and do But that would be meandering And I’m just passing through, I’m sorry for my blindness To all that I should see But please don’t waste your kindness On a wanderer like me, For I have promises to keep And no time to delay, I only want to eat and sleep And then be on my way Chorus: Thank you for your interest And the welcome at your door, But I’m not hanging round So keep your guidebook in the drawer, I only want to talk about The town I just came through, I only want to hear about The town I’m going to. I catch the little glances As I’m parking up the car, Hospitable advances From the drinkers at the bar, There’s a pretty little steeple Holding up the evening sky, And these are decent people, But I’m just passing by I know that there is history Behind each windowsill, I know there must be mystery High up here among the hills, And I could drink and tarry And hear a dozen tales, But they’d be more to carry When I XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX X XXX XXXXXX XX X XXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX X XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX X XXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXX X XXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXX X XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXX X XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX X XXXXXXXXX XXX XX X XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX X XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX

Seen from a train

By Peter Lastima


A song about that girl that you see , or of whom you see different incarnations, across the world and who is defined by her remoteness and inaccessibility. Were you to meet her, and get to know her, it is possible that that her allure might fade. But you're never going to find out.

Love a Little

By Peter Lastima


That "Take a Chance on Me" sentiment. But expressed here with slightly neater rhymes and a passing reference to Colwyn Bay. .

Hanging Gardens

By Peter Lastima


This is a torch song - of the kind sung, once, by the likes of Dean Martin or Tony Bennet or perhaps even Sinatra, in smoky night clubs, or, with a bit of adjustment, by Eartha Kitt or Ella Fitzgerald. The sequence of flight, pursuit and reconciliation is complete but here the setting is a classical one - the couple having found their way home to a Babylon set way back in antiquity.

Starting again

By Bob Boyes


The lyric is about two lovers that have been together for a long time, they have had a lot of love between them, but as the years have gone by, they have slowly, started to drift and fall out of love, for no reason in particular. But do remain good friends - with the prospect of starting again on their own.
