Glass White Flag

from Death By Sunset by Dave McPherson



This was my first real proper solo song & I still play it live to this day. It is a love song but for nobody in particular. I really pushed myself at the time to play something quite intricate whilst singing over the top which still challenges me sometimes to this day. The song has appeared on a number of releases, originally 'B.S.W.U.E'. I loved the recording of this so much that I shot an amateur video for it which you can watch from the link below...



The sky is dry tonight.
So am I tonight.
You fly like an eagle and you glide like an angel.
You fall like a star.

I still think you're beautiful.
Like a miracle in black and white.
But I still understand your reasons for leaving me.
'Cause I'm untrustworthy.
And it's my fault, I miss you.

The grass is cold today.
This feeling is old today.
You're cold like a snowflake.
And you're warm like a heartache.
And you burn like a sun ray.

She drains the poet right out of his heart and soul.
But she's always hurting.
There's glass in her foot again.
When she smiles the truth bends.
Or maybe it's all part of the way it was before we started.


from Death By Sunset, released October 19, 2011

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
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!
