Fire Opals

from Death By Sunset by Dave McPherson



This song was originally titled 'The stupid franchise of love' & was written way back in 2004. You can hear the original version on 'Crescent Summer Sessions' which is much poppier. I'm not entirely sure what the lyrical content is about as it was so long ago!


She's always wearing white.
She paints her blue utopia with candlelight.
Her windows are all steamed up.
The catalyst breathes me in.
Her eyes are like fire opals.
And her heart is a machine.

I look through you.
It makes me want to cry knowing what I've done to you.
So translucent.
We danced for the sun.
But how could I know you would leave so soon?

Isn't it funny how things come around?
The ceiling always meets the ground.
The cookie always crumbles.
The shapes of our lives have spiralled and split.
The pendulum's fallen into the pit.
Every grain of sand is the beach.

No-one can shame you.
And no-one can hurt you.
And I talked to you for hours about nothing.
And I missed you when you said you had to go.
And this is all my fault, I should have left.
How could I do this to her after all she's done?
Now she weeps silently.

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!
