about

This was the first song, of two, that I wrote in the backyard of my friend's house on a clear, beautiful day in May 2015, which began my return to music. So, I had to embody that experience in the recording.

lyrics

A Thousand Blessings
Music & Lyrics by Stavros


Woke up with you again,
and it felt just like it was.
Loneliness set in my bones,
and all our words were dust.

In the light of day,
ankles behind the sun.
Falling down on every one.
And everything is beautiful.
This was all just in my head.

You turned to me,
and made a joke;
a laughing smirk,
a raging note.
Such unease now between the sheets;
Hidden and incomplete.

I turn away, thinking how
all the shutters of your soul
are sealed so tight ://

Woke up with you again,
a heart-shaped gun
and a stone in your mouth.

When I think of you,
all the birds in your eyes
are locked within your house.

Curtains drawn.
A thudding bass pulse plays against the light
of a waxing moon;
beckons you to sing a song in tune
with another soul
that you've drawn into your temple of hair & bone.

Oh, so all alone!
Rage against the dying of the light.
You look at me and a thousand blessings
kiss the salty sea ://

A Thousand Blessings Kiss... ://

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
