Mr Goodchild

from Death By Sunset by Dave McPherson



This song is a tribute to my late Grandfather & details some of my favourite memories of him & also regretting not telling him how much he meant to me later in life.


Jump onto the go-kart, take turns to take part.
Drinking cold tea, overly sweet dreams.
Koi fish and roses will fall but none of us could ever forget it all.
Caught in a gold frame.

Sit under the archway, fake cough for a sick day.
Amethyst on display with Devon cliff clay reflecting the dusty rays.
Pickles and fresh vegetables, none of us could ever forget it all.
Rush down the blue slide.

And we can close our eyes and be there in an instant.
And we can stop our hearts but the blood flow is so constant.
I constantly think of you and the things I should have said to you.

The strongest of handshakes quashes past mistakes.
The whitest of hair shines whilst you top me up with fine cheap wine.
Snooker balls rolling in tunnels, none of us could ever forget it all.
Whistling songs for the birds.

Mr Goodchild.
Mr Goodchild.

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!
