THE INSPIRATION

Rebuilding your life when all you treasured has gone is hard, sure the drink helps you get through the night but you still are alone. The distant lights tempt you but can you go on while still grieving?

 

RECORDING NOTES

This is a new recording of an old song and one I am most happy with. There are elements of many influences within this song, there is a touch of David Gilmore, Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler.

Distant Lights

Distant Lights

Verse1
The distant lights, they shine so bright,
offer excitement in the lonelyness of night.
I feel some sadness and I head for the lights
to drown my sorrows and to get through the night.

Chorus
And it takes a jar or two, I'm addicted to the booze
I ain't got over you but I have faced up to the truth
and this is just my way, it may kill me so they say
What's there to save? 

Verse 2
The house is not my home, its a coffin it feels cold
even when the fire's on, it still chills me to the bone.
I thought to move away, but the memories make me stay
they're the memories of you 

Chorus
And it takes a jar or two, I'm addicted to the booze
I ain't got over you but I have faced up to the truth
and this is just my way, it may kill me so they say
What's there to save?

Verse 3
You never understood me, or what I tried to do
I don't think that you loved me as much as I loved you.
But now your gone what's left for me
just the memories of you 

Chorus
And it takes a jar or two, I'm addicted to the booze
I ain't got over you but I have faced up to the truth
and this is just my way, it may kill me so they say
What's there to save? 

Verse1 (reprise)
The distant lights, they shine so bright,
offer excitement in the loneliness of night.
I feel some sadness and I head for the lights
to drown my sorrows and to get through the night.
