Cristina on piano
This song was originally written about the same time as my song "the alone child." Unlike that song, I rerecorded it with new equipment. Hope you enjoy.
Words/music by Robert Park Mitchell, II
originally written and recorded back at the same time as the alone child, I rerecorded this and made a video for it. It wasn't what I'd originally intended for the video-I'd intended it to be almost entirely animated, but I wasn't satisfied with the results for many of the sequences, and I finally ran out of time and just posted.
(who was it who said films aren't finished- but abandoned? lol)
If you close your eyes
I'll show you a planet where
honey rides the skies
frozen crystals melt on your tongue
the sun is a singing candle
dewdrops taste like frozen plums
and run like rivers
time is a day
life is green
no one knows if it's really Spring
and no one cares
gardens grow lollipops
animals with polka-dots
and her tumbling curls in slumber
upon sable eyelid canvas
her Mommy and Daddy dance the stars
but their feet are not inflamed
(could it be he found someone to hear out his rambling?)
perhaps if I close my eyes for long enough
I'll come back a starship Captain
and then I could ride the stars for real
and maybe truly smile...
