about

Dave McPherson Brentwood, UK

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
noun
1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!

Track Name: The Domestic Accident
The Domestic Accident

If I had it I'd pull it all out all over again.
Let's face it the proof is in the pudding.
I'm clearly not quite right.

I'm clearly not quite right.
I'm really not quite right.
I know I'm not in the right but what's left is only right.

Underneath this skin we're all a horror show.
A gory mess of flesh & bones & organs grinding slow discordant notes.

No I don't wanna love like that, I wanna love you more.
I want the best for all, I don't wanna go to war.

I'm clearly not quite right.
I'm really not quite right.
I know I'm not in the right but what's left is only right.

I'm on fire when I'm on the move like that.
But now I'm frozen but I'm still standing still. 
I struck a nerve, I can be a pain like that.
Still haven't chosen the blue pill or the red pill.

I can't swallow them anyway, bliss or truth makes me choke.

No I don't wanna use the word hate but I hate it to the core.
I want the best for all, I don't wanna go to war.

No I don't wanna love like that, I wanna love you more.
I want the best for all, I don't wanna go to war.

No I don't wanna life like that, I wanna live it more.
I'm clearly not quite right. 
I’m really not quite right.
Track Name: 2000 Trees
2000 Trees

2007, I found some heaven.
Balloons in the sunset as time left seven.
Come our set the best times were to be had yet.
2007, I found some heaven.

2000 reasons to meet in the West.
You're the main reason that we sing our best in the forest & old seasoned fields.
Sensibility yields.

I don't care about no future.
This is my weekend.
Weakened in July by apple juice.
Fermented with fun we cry with a wide grin.
And now we all sing...

2000 Trees, where I fell in love.
2000 Trees, yeah she gets me drunk.
2000 Trees, gonna have me some fun.
2000 Trees.

2016, the Trees grow strong.
Too many good memories to fit in one song.
Track Name: Begs The Answers
Begs The Answers

You've questioned an answer with the answer.
You've questioned an answer uncomfortable.
You've answered the question with an answer & questioned an answer like a fool.

You request an answer like some master, a master who thinks he knows it all.
You've answered a question that she asked ya, your answer makes you feel uncomfortable.

Questions beg & they beg.
Lies the truth, answers you.
Lies in bed & through the teeth.
Lies to you, lies to me.

You question answers that she gave ya.
Your answers question it all.
You mention answers like they'll save ya.
You're a master of nothing at all.

You mark answers with a simple question mark?
You question the answers through it all.
You light up answers with those questions so dark.
Some answers leave you uncomfortable.
Track Name: Importance Matters
Importance Matters

I think you know what you've created.
A rarity, a heart so sacred.
Too impossible to be true.
A love unstoppable breaks through.

I won't ask what you have been through.
Please forgive those things I'm bound to do.
It is improbable that I'm through.
But I'm a better fool 'cause of you.

These things are important to me, though they might not matter to you.
These things seem important to me.
They don't seem to matter to you.

Engineer a simple question.
Can I call on you when I have messed up?
Do you still see the boy beneath this broken man?
Does my presence bring you joy?
I hope that I can.

These souls are important to me.
Their hearts always matter to me.
So glad that we haunted the free with matters important to me.

You still matter to me.

As the sun sets from blue to red all my inhibitions have grown dead.
I'm an impossible party.
Too many years to get it started again.

These things are important to me.

You still matter to me.
Track Name: Give It Time, Time It Gives
Give It Time, Time It Gives

No, I cannot cry.
To tell the truth I’m quite relieved that this would fix, I can’t believe.

Yes, the last hope had died.
It’s bitter sweet, I don’t believe you’d ever return what you received.

I didn’t know that all the love I offered you couldn’t climb the wall that you built so untrue.
I’m disappointed, what am I supposed to say?
Do you not know I worry ‘bout you every day?

No, I’m not a fool but I fall for love in vain.
This swimming pool empty & drained.
I swam, swam to you.
Swam on my belly through autumn leaves so please tell me…

Why you couldn’t even make this easier?
I think of you & all my heart gets queasier.
Then your love splits & it spits back in my face.
Makes me look at my surname with mild disgrace.

And I know this love I hold will never die.
But if I told you it was strong would be a lie.
And if I could not hold on would you say I was wrong?
Do I belong?
Belong.
Be strong.
