Washover 04:39
Washover The temperature’s dropped, noise stopped, barometer’s fallen Sunrays poke their own way through the gloom The wilderness and the emptiness are calling You’ll never get out, if you don’t get out there soon Round this time of year, you gain a primal yearning And it burns just like the fires upon the fell The colours of your youth they are returning Wash over the gates of God with the flames of Hell And who’s to say, you’ll end up swimming backwards For you the current flows far too strong You’ve never lacked in passion, you’ve never lacked lust Who’s to tell you that sort of thing is wrong? So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you do Do anything you do Do anything you do Anything you do Round this time of year, you begin to get crestfallen You say there’s just so much you have to do And ain't it easy to get down when things get boring But then you work out exactly what is true to you So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you Washover you So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you wanna do Anything… Washover you Washover you Round this time of year Yeah, round this time of year Round this time of year

about

An ever-expanding album, written over Summer 2022. Some heavier tunes feature this time.

Guitars used: Squier Jazzmaster, Squier Jaguar, Epiphone ES-339, and Epiphone Les Paul.

Photo is my own, of Workington Docks in Cumberland, England.
Mouth of a Docker? Mouth of the Cocker? or Mouth Like A Rocker? - who knows what would have made the best album title?

Actually this doesn't quite work, as Workington Docks sits at the mouth of the River Derwent, not the River Cocker, which joins the Derwent at, you guessed it, Cockermouth... never mind eh.
