Songs of Hope & Regret
Notes on songs: 1. The Way to Talk to Clouds - A poem by the English Romantic poet Shelly starts: 'We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon...' 2. Your Future Ain't Been Told - My daughter was a good basketball player, there was a roof post in front of our house where she would stand (to keep her back straight) and lift weights. Then she met a really handsome guy . . . 3. A Thousand Years Ago - I had this vision; I was standing behind a woman in her castle, a large room, the wind was blowing in (A thousand years ago there were no glass windows), stone floor and walls, and she was grieving. 4. In My Dream - I was going through a time where it seemed that every song I wrote was sad or depressing. I told myself, 'you've got to write something happy' and this was it! 5. Journey's End - OK, I was in my Lorena McKennett phase. 6. Safe For the Day - My grandmother was in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake, afterwards, she met my grandfather. They moved to the country, outside of Livingston, California.
