Jackals

about

A long, long lost track, I can't remember how many years ago I wrote this, but it's actually pretty good!

Again the psychedelic substances were talking in the music and the lyrics of this track.

References from my trip to Romania in 2002 - the clock tower is in the Central Romanian city of Sighisoara, the jackals roamed loose on the country mountain roads, and the lightning struck even more regularly than the clock, or so it seemed!

lyrics

Jackals

When the day comes, the morning lies deep
In the morning, I wake from my sleep
Come the afternoon, the sun will not shine
Until I hear you say that you’re mine

When the lovers who hide by my wall
Decide that the lightning should fall
And the jackals that prowl round my door
Remember they’ve been here before

And the elegant clocktower chime
Reminds me to set back the time, again
Reminds me to set back the time,
Again

But the evening lies empty, my friend
And I’m wondering just where to begin
And what kind of well I fell in

Til the remnants of what went before
Well they break down a hole in the floor

And I know that it’s you I adore
And I know that it’s you I adore
And I know that it’s you I adore
Again, again, again
