Shadow

(Rupert Webb)

This song is about a man who has lost in love and lost everything. He might be a vagrant, or just searching for meaning on a long journey.

An old romantic dreams of a time that isn’t there From within his crumbling hovel on the threshold of despair The Sunday morning throbbing cuts deep into his soul Since he begged his evening fancies at the local watering hole I should have seen the forecast for another rainy day It’ll leave my memory dirty, but wash my sins away And now my destination looks fallen and forlorn I’ll spend the morning on the roadside while my shadow starts to form I often think about you in a time that’s all but gone I remember strange emotions when you and me were one You screwed those years of happiness, they’re never coming back So XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXXX XX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX X XXXXXX XX XXX XXX XX XX XXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX

Landlord

By Rupert Webb


This song is about stress and mental illness, maybe schizophrenia. There is certainly paranoia and fear in the lyrics, but it is mixed with confusion and a list of bizarre happenings. The subject just wants some calm, but they are too busy rationalising their existence to their alter ego. The landlord in question might be another personality in the same mind, but it’s deliberately obscure. The Landlord could easily be changed to a she and refer to the subject as “girl”, not “son” for a female singer. The Queen could be lunching with almost anyone with a three syllable name. I wrote it as Clint Eastwood originally.

Crazy Beautiful

By Nick Duer


Another Angel song. She has long flowing hair, and drives a jeep alot of the time. She commented one day that her hair was crazy. I'm living a long way away, and I don't think it was jeep weather there. However I pictured her in the jeep hair blowing everywhere and shorts. A beautiful picture indeed. So my comment was crazy beautiful. I added that was a good song title. I was headed to a doctors appointment that day. So as I waited I wrote the first draft. Here is my final version.

Yearn Perpetual

By Elazar Benjamin


This work is about the inability to cease the yearning for a lost love. It entreats the absent lover to return and hopes that the separation is temporary.
