Close my eyes

The haze it takes me

To a place of mine

  

No one here would

Dare awake me

As I’m creating space in time

  

Everyday for me is a Sun☉ day

Every time an afternoon

All the words are out there drifting

Into my room

  

Through the window

Chords are calling

Searching for a melody

  

No song of mine could

Now awake me

From unforgotten memories

   

Every song for me is a some day

Every thought an afternoon

Every word I write can free me

If I seduce it with a tune

   

But I won’t sleep until

I find a pen and paper

Ask my guitar to find the notes

  

And after midnight

Early Friday morning

My song becomes and off she floats

  

Yeah after midnight

My song becomes

The moment now and off she floats

  

My song becomes the moment now

My song becomes the moment now

  

   

The Story of 'The Moment Now'

The Moment Now - riting a Song on Koh Samet, Thailand

Being in the moment on Koh Samet, Thailand after quitting work :)

   

I find that when we do the things we came here to do we really do 'live in the moment'

For me that means playing, performing or, as in this case, writing songs

I'd had this tune knockin' around for a while but hadn't got 'round to writing any words until one night my mate Cliff was over for a band sesh. As I remember it, he helped me write the lyrics by asking me what the music conjured up in my mind - dreamy, sunny, summer afternoons etc... Then we knocked some ideas around; I loved his lines about being taken to "a place of mine" and "unforgotten memories". I added the last verse a bit later because I really could not go to bed until I'd written it down!

I love the whole idea about being in the moment when we write songs, or just doing whatever it is that inspires us

I hope you find yourself in your 'Moment Now' too...
