The song is really an emotional admission of a man who finds himself lost, only to be found again realizing that the answer, everything he needed is already right in front of him. In this song, the delivery of the emotional self assessment seems to be coming from a man that has all he really needs in life, particularly his wife, lover, life partner, but has lost himself and doesn't really know this fact anymore, or has lost touch with the fact that what he thinks he still needs to search for in his heart has already been found. Well I lost myself but I'm found again I'm starting right back here at the end I'll be alright - I'll be alright you'll see 'Cause the answer is right in front of me Starting right back here at the end - this line bleeds paradox. The paradox that I find to be parallel to Pink Floyd's song Time, where in this song the subject sings about how he woke up one day and realized 10 years had got behind him, and so he runs and runs to catch up with the sun. But the problem is the sun is always sinking and coming up behind him, and he can never catch up, no matter how hard he tries. It's like starting at the end, or more importantly, ending at the start! I have made some fortunes I have lost some wars And I have gazed through holy windows Man I've closed some doors But I don't make excuses For the things I've done I've been brave, hey fearless And I've turned tail and run Wow. Read those lyrics and let them sink in. Powerful. I have made some fortunes - refers to the good things that have come into our lives - I have lost some wars - and who among us hasn't tried and failed? And if you try hard enough, achieving success can be a battle much like a war, you know? I have gazed through holy windows - now I never asked Alan, but for me, I interpret that as having experimented with hallucinogens to "open the doors", where your eyes are "holy windows", witnessing the spiritual reality. Man I've closed some doors refers to failed relationships, and I think also means making a conscious decision to close the door on chapters of our lives, or even belief systems. The next four lines are perfect: I don't make excuses. I'm human. I've been brave, and I've run away. I'm imperfect. Then I run away to my lonely spot leave the world behind for a while Then I realize all I've got And I'm coming back to my right mind Wow. Twice! Wow Wow! So we all retreat into our solitude, inside the universe that exists between our ears, and it's in those moments of self reflection that we realize what we have and start coming back to our right minds. "My Right Mind" is the place where everyone should be: at one with themselves, their family and friends, and the universe, especially our Source (God). The next verse is also all about the revelation that I am not perfect. I am perfect in that I'm NOT perfect. I've climbed mountains, won and didn't fail, made my momma proud, but I've spent some nights in jail. And I don't make excuses for the things I've done. Brilliant. The lead solo takes the emotional context of the song into a more intense and aggressive place without losing the basic feelings the song conveys, and transports us into the epic and anthem-like ending. Finally, we wind down and fade out. The answer is right in front of you. Love and Prosperity to you ALL! Have an AWESOME Day!

Watch the Skiing In Vienna Lyrics Video from YouTube! The story behind the Skiing In Vienna Lyrics Back when I was a kid, first learning to play guitar, I had a couple of friends - Paul and Dean. And no, I'm not making that up because it accidentally sounds like the name of a famous butter eating southern chef, that was their real names. I don't know how to find them today to ask permission use their full names in this story so I'll just use first names. Paul, Dean and I used to steal gum and life savers from the Kings department store and sell them at school. I'm talking Freshman here. This is probably 1974? 75? Something like that. Once we got caught and I actually talked my way out of it by threatening to sue if the store security searched me and found nothing. They sent us on our way and told us never to return. Kings department store later disappeared and was replaced by Bradlees, which also disappeared. For anyone who thinks it's not possible for Walmart or Target to go under, think again. Those were big chains. So one day Paul and I were hanging out in my basement. Paul got the idea that we would all run away and become bank robbers once one of us got our license. The idea was that we would have a van, and the three of us would go to small towns and set off an explosion at one end of town and while all the cops were at that scene, we'd waltz into the bank at the other side of town and rob it. As a side note, imagine my surprise when many years later this exact tactic was used on one of my favorite TV shows, Justified (FX) in one of the first episodes of season 1. That was the plan: sneak into town, blow something up at one end of town, rob a bank at the other end of town, and just drive right on out without any police interference. We went through the whole thing, talking about how the van would have a machine gun mounted at the back so we could throw the doors open and shoot the cops when they chased us. We talked about how we'd live in a cabin in the woods and when the heat got too close we'd take up the floorboards where we hid our money and take off. I'm pretty sure the idea of Skiing in Vienna was born in this time, and for some reason I am remembering that we might have been sketching out the song also, but I can't remember that far back. All I know is that Paul had a hand in the birth of the song and I wrote it - fleshed it out - later. I brought it to my band Cadence and we together tweaked the simple droning grind into a pretty cool song, which was incidentally pretty famous for a few years at Naugatuck High School. You can read more about the birth of the song here: Enjoy the video and have an AWESOME Day!

Check out the Waterfall Lyrics Video on YouTube Waterfall Lyrics Video Waterfall is the very first song that Alan Morgan and I worked on together. Released on December 28, 2011, it was slated to be the first of about 12 songs we would work on together, releasing each as a single, then remixing and remastering them for an album release. At least that was the plan. We worked on 3 songs together and then the circumstances of our lives both changed and our collaboration came to a stop. We are still talking about working together again, and I hope we can. We do have 9 more songs on the list to be done for our collaboration album. Waterfall is really a cautionary tale, one which should resonate with many people of all ages and stages of life. For me, not having actually written the lyrics (Alan Morgan wrote the lyrics), I can only interpret. But to me they speak to the age old adage, "You don't know what you got till it's gone". Dream of a lifetime slipping through your hands Dream of a lifetime - oh it wasn't my plan How many times have we all stood there, with that "kicked in the head" and "sick stomach" feeling knowing that we just let the best thing in our lives slip through our hands? I for one can, and in fact I wrote an entire album about it: Tip of the Sword, which is a tale of lost love and the stupid decisions that caused it to happen. Let my rage wash it away... Man it wouldn't be real... Wash it away like a waterfall... Just erase it all and take me back in time... Lyrics like those are just rare these days. And so are leads solos like the solos in this song. And bass lines. This song has one very, very cool bass line. I oughta know - I played it :) Love and Prosperity to you ALL! Have an AWESOME Day!

Damn the Speed Limit Lyrics Video The story behind the creation of this song is really a pretty crazy tale. My friends and I had just come off of an all-nighter with the help of some "electric koolaid", ganja, and lots of beer. These kinds of nights always ended up with a second day "after-glow" that kept us up riding the wave of awesomeness all day into the next night. It was early in the afternoon when we were all hanging out at my friend Bruce's parents house in the back yard. I remember it like it was yesterday. A small group of really, super close friends. The sun was shining and it was either fall or spring in Connecticut: crystal blue skies and brisk air. Not cold, just invigorating. We were playing frisbee. Bruce bent the frisbee in half and then tried to throw it. The frisbee flew really funny - kinda wobbling and tilting back and forth. This was around the time that the Star Wars movies were big, and I want to say that it may have been around the time the 2nd or 3rd movie came out. So it was natural for me to look up and comment on the Frisbee's flight. I was sitting on the grass cross-legged - when we were kids we called it "Indian Style". I saw Bruce bend the frisbee and throw it, and we all laughed at the pathetic way it flew, and I said to Bruce, "hey that's like Luke Skywalker drunk driving". He laughed, and I stood up and said "get a notebook!!!" The rest is history. I literally sat down and wrote out these lyrics in one sitting, on the grass in the sun on a beautiful day in New England, riding the afterglow of a really fun night with the best bunch of friends I've ever had in my entire life. God, I miss those guys. I should think about getting everybody together for a reunion... Damn the Speed Limit Love and Prosperity to you ALL! Have an AWESOME Day!

Alan wrote the song about his best friend who passed away tragically. He was very ill for a very long time and finally it took him. All That Far Lyrics Video Alan Morgan and I worked on this song as a collaboration together in my Spring Hill, FL studio. Alan wrote the song about his best friend who passed away tragically. He was very ill for a very long time and finally it took him. Alan was pretty upset by his friends passing, and in true Alan Morgan form, he wrote a masterpiece of songwriting without really knowing just how great of a writer he really is. He just slaps these amazing songs together and he doesn't - in my humble opinion - really understand what the sound like or mean to those who didn't create them. I took this song and crafted around it a perfect blend of emotional intensity that runs the gamut from tender to heartfelt to hope and incredible beauty. The song starts very soft and easy, then transitions into an awesome chorus that has a very nice complimentary bass line. This walking base and somewhat aggressive but at the same time laid back drum track give a sense of independent aloofness to the music that tracks along with this sad and touching song. And as usual, I threw in a really tasty, awesome lead solo that is carefully crafted to support the emotional tone of the lyrics and intention of the song. Love and Prosperity to you ALL!

We dream, we wish, we pray, we envision, we project, Tip of the Sword Lyrics Video Story And now we come to the end of the tale, and it's much different in reality than any imaginings of it - as is always the case with real life vs. our dreams. We dream, we wish, we pray, we envision, we project, we intend... but in the end the reality is never what we imagined. And sometimes that is not a bad thing. Not at all. Sometimes, the silver lining inside of the cloud that seems to follow us around is really something bigger. Something more... liberating. Years went by and I had all but forgotten about Sarah. Life went on. My grief, however intense and debilitating, had faded into a memory. I went to school, started working in computers, I had a girlfriend who was really good to me... a car, friends. My life was good. I was happy, at least I thought I was anyway. The damage Sarah did to me emotionally and psychologically never really ever left me. I believe I am affected on a very deep level even today. There is a part of me that always feels... unworthy. It's been an uphill climb to get my head out of that self-destructive state of mind, and for the most part today I am so much better. But I wasn't remotely close to where I am now when she called me out of the blue about five years after she left me. And as the song goes, after all that time, when she finally called, it all came back to me. I made a promise, and so I opened my heart, and my arms, and let her in again. She wanted me back! Exactly what I had dreamed about for so many long and terrible nights, right? But it struck me very suddenly that I had worked hard to get to a place where my life was happy, and stable, and I didn't think of her anymore. What would happen if things didn't work out? I was so fearful of having to relive the pain I experienced for so long after she left the first time that I just could not take the chance of it happening again. I believed that if things didn't work out we could both be destroyed. It was too late. She cried. She wanted me back, and she missed me, and as I watched her weep I felt very sad for her, because I knew something about how she felt. And then it struck me, that while I was suffering a life of living hell after she left, she never cared for me. She never acknowledged my pain - not really. I suffered alone, and at this moment in time I realized that what she was feeling, being rejected by me now, was only the tip of the iceberg compared to what I felt. If she felt pain, then she was only feeling the tip of of the sword she drove into my heart. 'The pain you feel is touching the tip of the bloody sword you drove into my heart so very long ago" It was too late, and I knew if we got together, if we came any closer, the tip of the sword would be driven right through her. There was no small part of me that on a subconscious level - I truly believe - didn't want to make her suffer in some way so she would know the pain she caused me. Time heals all wounds. Or so they say. And it seems that time had healed the wounds left behind by Sarah's abandonment. But as with all healing, there are scars. When the wounds were sore it would have worked but now it's too late and I know that it hurts Yes, when the wounds were fresh, when I was tender and vulnerable, it would have worked. But now I was healed - calloused - covered in scar tissue that she could not break through. It was too late. She was my love, she was my life: but it was time to say goodbye. Tip of the Sword (Title Track): Lyrics by Jerry Boutot After all this time you finally have called I almost forgot who you were by now In the flash of remembering the promise I made I opened my arms right up to you babe But now I’m a man and I’m not very weak And this magic reunion has made me think That we’d both be destroyed if things didn’t work So now it’s too late and I know that it hurts But, the pain that you feel is only touching the Tip of the bloody sword You drove into my heart so very long ago Jerry Boutot: Musician, Composer, Producer no yes <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/SCMo9lAlXnY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Love Once Lost Lyrics Video Story Many times in life after we have lived with, dealt with, and left behind strife or trauma, we find ourselves looking back at our experience and taking stock, as if we are looking at it through the eyes of a stranger. Or as if it is a fictional story. We know we lived it, but it's difficult to remember the actual pain that we experienced, or the suffering. Women who have experienced childbirth know this. It is often said that if women could actually remember the pain of childbirth as it was while they endured it, they would never do it again. Yet they keep going back because the anticipation of the reward on the other side of that miraculous experience somehow trumps the fear or lessens the memory of pain. In my life, I had moved on. I had grown. I had forgotten the pain, the suffering, the stress and the drama. I still loved her, but I was separated from it, like an outsider. Almost, not completely. I had gone to school to become a Mainframe Computer Operator and that was working quite well for me. I had a very nice girlfriend. Then one day I saw Sarah in a bank line when I went to cash my check. Seeing her brought it all back, and I knew that I had to try one more time. So I contacted her parents and told them to pass a message on to her. I wrote her a letter and gave it to them. And then I moved on. The letter told her all about how much I had lost when she left, and how much I'd learned and grown. Pretty much the chorus of the song sums it up: 'Cause you and me babe, we let it happen so fast Fell in love, took a chance At the start we were happy But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart Everything was breaking our hearts you just went and gave up too easy If we struggled hard together to be in love as we once used to be Then our lives would be so beautiful now So different, somehow Love once lost can be found So life went on and I went on and I forgot that I sent her that letter. Until a couple of more years later, but that's a story for the final song. Love Once Lost (Lyrics) by Jerry Boutot You didn't know me I came along I found you Ooh, I looked into your eyes and I saw you smile We fell in love on such a warm, summer day Then we took our love to a place where the sun would remind us of that day In California we made our home and life was good And then I hurt you very badly and you went away And my heart has cried and my life's been dying since that day But I've prayed I'd make you mine again some day 'Cause you and me babe, we let it happen so fast Fell in love, took a chance At the start we were happy But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart Everything was breaking our hearts you just went and gave up too easy If we struggled hard together to be in love as we once used to be Then our lives would be so beautiful now So different, somehow Love once lost can be found Now time has gone and we are older and I have learned I've realized what I have lost I know I was wrong And I know that I can make it up to you babe If you 'd give me one more chance, I know I can show you a better man Let's get together Let's end this nightmare I love you My heart is tired of this madness baby I need you There is no reason why we can't have a new love affair 'Cause I believe we truly love each other And you and me babe, we let it happen so fast Fell in love, took a chance At the start we were happy But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart Everything was breaking our hearts you just went and gave up too easy If we struggled hard together to be in love as we once used to be Then our lives would be so beautiful now So different, somehow Love once lost can be found Love and Prosperity to you ALL!

Since You've Been Away Lyrics Video Story I don't know if you noticed, but a couple of songs ago - right before the descent into self induced mind altering psychedelic self medication, there was a You've Been Away Lyrics Video post. Not to be confused with this one: the Since You've Been Away Lyrics Video story. The first is the calm before the storm. This one is the aftermath. In real world life story behind this song, I found myself working and living in a small town in Connecticut. Time had passed. Enough time to forget? No. Enough to heal? A little. Since you've been away I have mended my heart Since you've been away I have made a new start I've grown a little stronger - can't wait for you much longer And so it was. I'd healed a little. Gotten over the loss a little. I made a new start, and I couldn't wait around much longer. I needed to get laid, you know? Simple base human needs. I need love and deep inside I'm yearning for it The happiness I've waited for just isn't here It was so true. I had been waiting for what seemed like an eternity for her to come back. I was in Connecticut, where she was - only about a 30 minute drive away. When I came back I tried to see her but she wouldn't. Her family was a wall. I visited one of her best friends and made sure she told her I was back from California. But she never called me, and wouldn't take my calls, and eventually I gave up. I turned my attention to finding a partner, someone I could share some good times with and party with. And though I could not love you I could prove that if I had you Then things would be much better Together we'd brave the stormy weather Now the goal became what usually becomes the goal in cases where someone fucks up royally and has to live it down: prove something. I knew that I had to prove to myself that I could do a better job of holding together a relationship, and if I could prove it with someone else, then I'd be proving to her that things would be much better if she would only come back to me. So I've taken on a woman and the reason should be understood that since you've been away I've had to prove that I could do you good since you've been away I was out to prove something, and I was using another human being to do it. Nice. I didn't see it that way at the time. I was being a good boyfriend. A good partner. Someone that didn't cheat. Someone that didn't make his lover feel less than the prime focus of my world. I could do that with somebody else, but I will always wait till we meet again someday kinda sorta indicates that I was not really "with" who I was with, you know? Since you've been away the taste of love aint so sweet Since you've been away my desire has been weak You know I miss the love that we had for one another What can I say? Sex with Sarah was like dying and going to heaven and meeting God. It was during my time with her that I developed the theory that the reason sex is so taboo in western culture was that it brought you so close to God - the creator - that the religious powers that be did not believe it was in their best interest to encourage this avenue of knowing God lest people just stay home and fuck all the time and never give money to the church or do anything productive. So making sex taboo was very important, and wrapping the whole beautiful soulful spiritual act in a self immolating sense of guilt and depravity was the prime motivator for religion to create a campaign of damning all humans to feel massive guilt for our own bodies and natural desires. But I digress. Nothing was like her. No one tasted like her. No one could elicit the desire in me that she elicited. I give love but deep inside I'm giving it to you You'll never know how much my love for you has grown since you've been away And, there you have it. Every time I gave love, made love, treated my woman with love, I was really giving it to her. And a weird, twisted, way, my love for her grew stronger and stronger all the time.
