I published this piece in its original poem form yesterday and here is the song version with lyrics. I hope you enjoy this demo version of the song, recorded at home on my trusty little digital recorder, who I have christened Buckina.

In The Last Days (Audio)

In The Last Days (Lyrics)

In the last days
My mind washed up on the shore
Cast adrift harrowing shadows
Walking along the pathways
contemplating

In the last days
We all clung dearly to the vestiges of wealth but it was always
made of sand, disappearing on the land, oh yeah


Reflections in the water deceiving
Reflections in the water appealing

In the last days
I took comfort in love that is real
No false comrades could ease my soul
The fall is disconcerting you see

In the last days
Glorious sunshine illuminates my frailty
We all stumble along but life is always flowering


Reflections in the water deceiving
Reflections in the water appealing


In the last days
A fox and a sparrow framed in the glow of a winter’s call
they don’t care
they are free
The glimpse only fleeting


Reflections in the water deceiving
Oh brother tell me what we should do
The world it keeps on turning and turning
But we’re all lost to each other it seems
We’ll lay down our guns that’s all we can do
