  1. 2020 Reprise

From the recording 2020 Reprise

This alt rock original was inspired when fellow musician Allan Luke sent me a set of chord progressions during lock down last April. I sat with the music, composing and recorded the original song - '2020' during my self-quarantine in the meantime Allan composed a song over the same progression. I l released the merged 2 songs that Allan put together as an acoustic experimental styled track. in the spring While recording December Falls holiday album in the summer, I had my band record 2020 Reprise as a solo song further expressing what was once quiet and pensive to urgent and frustrating. The angst didn't quite fit the holiday album so I saved it as single to start the new year.

Lyrics

2020
Staring out my window
So quiet every day
Longing for the future
I haven't much to say

We've battened down the hatches
These fleeting winds may stay
Brushing off the danger
We don't want to live this way

Trust in love we are together
All the paths we walked forever
Never mind the point of view
We give the rest a truce

Staring out my window
So quiet every day
Longing for the future
I haven't much to say

Deep down we're going
Know the jail
Weaving in the streams above
Watching out
Is there enough?
Never wading in too light
Are the forces right?

And if I get it
I'll treat it wise
And if I miss it
I know it's eyes
Every fire in you
Every sight of you
I feel ambitious for the day
I try and fight it
Fade away
