Lyrics
Gable without Gods

once upon a time, he had himself a dream
he was oh, so happy, he was oh so green
he believed in miracles, even in peace
but as he grew older, and through different winds
it faded away, like a bad dream

many times, he woke up drunk
and he saw this angel, above his head
she was so pretty, but she had no wings
he tried to tell her, to fly away
from this dark hell, from all these stupid lies

but like a merciful angel, she always stayed
to look after him, even though he never prayed
in his own misery, she gave him some pain
he begged her to take him for a flight
and she always did, she always tried

his own careful angel, and her crying call
in their lonesome gable, without gods

once upon a time, a Swedish sailor sunk
around the corner from the Chelsea Hotel
he slept not counting any sheep, sad and very drunk
he awoke to an angels voice, inside his fucked up head

they flew a top of buildings, flew a top of lights
the traffic stood still, faded in the night
they landed on a roof, and they landed pretty hard
he woke up with a bottle, of longing and truth
the angel were nowhere to be seen, once again he was left alone

he dragged himself down, and fell on Thomas bed
he fell into a dream, a red one, about a whore
woke up in the late afternoon, by a girl he'd seen before
she told him it was time, to do the town again

his own careful angel, and her crying call
in their lonesome gable, without gods

in the park with an angel, they walked around
he drank from a bottle, they almost made a round
and went back to the hotel, to fuck
on Mr. Wolfe's large bed, they were surrounded by red
they were dead

his own careful angel, and her crying call
in their lonesome gable, without gods

Applause
Julian and I seem to enjoy music with just that certain special quirkiness--this will stick in my mind for quite some time! It's very well done on any level but different in a very good way. Thanks for the good work! Michael

Thank you Bud
Well, you know I have the wings of desire, which has always been very important to me. Quote:

Damiel: "When the child was a child, it was the time of these questions. Why am I me, and why not you? Why am I here, and why not there? When did time begin, and where does space end? Isn't life under the sun just a dream? Isn't what I see, hear, and smell just the mirage of a world before the world? Does evil actually exist, and are there people who are really evil? How can it be that I, who am I, wasn't before I was, and that sometime I, the one I am, no longer will be the one I am?"

It may sound as if it is different from me, but I've been down this road before. It seems as if I have this circle of references - I may want to try to go a bit more simple - and potentially take it live soon... We'll see.

The story has always been very important to me - Tom Waits, hm, I did not see that, but I guess you're right, others, elsewhere, have made the same reference. I am glad you've enjoyed!

One brilliant
song after another. How can you be so prolific and still write such wonderful songs. This is like a long lost Leonard Cohen but much, much better.
Another download. Thanks. This takes it to 33 treasured songs of yours'.
Cheers

He, he
I really don't know of any "why" or "how", but I don't think the songs will ever end to flourish, I have so many stories left to tell. This is my muse.

You are an excellent GarageBander. I am just bowled over by the quality of your recording--in part reflecting the districtive strength of your song and voice and your rhythmic precision as a guitarist, but it's like you're in the same room as me. And your even your cello sounds reasonably real. Whatever you're doing, don't change it!

Thank you
Thus are big words... And yeah, it sounds reasonable real, but hopefully one day soon, I will find some people to arrange and play with, and I am actually starting to pick up on the violin, so who know, the cello may be the next step... Again, thank you for listening and comment.

Thank you Eddie
Of course, I never seek to amaze, but if it happens it does of course make me very, very pleased. Like any other musician, if my music can reach out and touch somebody, it makes me happy. I make my music first and foremost for myself - I think - when I make a song, I am there, but kind of not there in the same token - the song comes on its own sort of, I just help it along a little bit.

Gable without Gods
Great title. Feel like the story is from one of the fantasy books I like to read. Trying to figure out if this is a cautionary tale or not. Very precise and clean picking, great tone from the guitar, cello pad is a great choice, strong vocals.

It can be a cautionary tale if you wish it to be. I don't try to apply any kind of morals into my stories, however, we all come with our own morals that perhaps are reflected in what we do. I believe this song is more about insanity and fantasy, than anything. BTW, quite often I'd wanted to continue my stories as well, and sometimes I have, and do. Many have turned into short stories, and many are the subject of my visual art (drawing and paintings). I always see this little film playing inside my head - in this one - I can see every scene, every camera angle, every shot.

I like this very much...

the poetic nature of the lyrics... the ballad style, set to the guitar and strings. Lovely vocal style and harmonies. Kudos.
