Saying thank you to a few of the musicians I listened to as a teenager who inspired me to learn to play an instrument and write songs.

Lyrics

You were there, watching over me
So high on that dividing wall
My head too full of hopes and dreams
So I didn't hear you call

Never told you the role you played
Your mind so free and open
No idea how you lit the flame
Those guardian eyes your soul token

How could you seem so near
Yet be so far away?
One day you disappeared
Leaving debts I'll never pay

I was dreaming of blue pyramids
In a picture without a frame
oh how I wanted to follow you and
Step out onto your stage

How could you seem so near?
Yet be so far away?
One day you disappeared
Leaving debts I'll never pay

Were you that rainbow in curved air?
My midnight eyes so unprepared
Saxophone in the distance played
While you lived out on the edge

How could you seem so near
Yet still be so far away?
One day I disappeared
With those debts I'll never pay

How could you seem so nea
Yet still be so far away?
Then we both disappeared
Leaving debts I'll never pay
