LIGHT IS A STORY

Our band MoorbyJones just laid down the basic tracks for a song called Light is a Story. It’s to be the next single so a good deal of construction needs to be done over the next few weeks before a fully embellished and mixed version is ready. The lyric is mine, written in free verse format, and the tune (to be added when the full version is mixed) is by my songwriting partner Steve Moorby.

LIGHT IS A STORY

I dreamed I was a bird
amongst a multitude of birds
and like bread rising
the sun rose over the fields

I dreamed I was a fish
amongst a tenement of reeds.
Green was my truth
and I glided past the fisherman’s fly.

I dreamed I was a tree at night
under a sickle moon,
drawing down the silver
into my place of deep gold.

CHORUS
Light is a story
taken from the fire.
Remember if you can
the chapter of the single flame.
