about

8/25 ~ It’s almost sunrise .. a ribbon of light on the hill. A friend or two worried about me. Depressed, RJ? This song is actually based on my interpretation of an illustration in a copy of Canterbury Tales by Chaucer. A castle in the background and the gallows in the foreground. One last visit. One last chance to see his lady love. Remember “Long Black Veil”? One of those types of story songs. Protect the lass’s honour at all costs. I feel that more than any other pairing, ill-fated lovers were also that in a past life love. Tragic twin flame. Think Bonnie & Clyde and you get where I’m going. Still need to add the acoustic and slide guitar parts, backing vocals and a bit more ear candy. I love this song. When I first wrote it I thought it might be a good slow filler for the album as it clocks in at four and a half minutes. But heartbreaking to sing. I lost it a few times. And for the life of me I can’t explain it. Unusual with my own stuff. But I put on my big boy pants and made it through. Now I love this song. And so much more left to do to give it the justice it deserves. You decide. xoRJ

lyrics

Indigo heart
Sky is a blue .. almost black
Something I lost in the light
Is haunting me now in the night
Indigo heart
Witness the dread and despair
Evil I see in myself
Show it to nobody else

I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
I’ll miss your bright eyes
I’ve got my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart

Indigo heart
Castle walls crumble and fall
Give you my heart and my soul
Just take them both when you go
Indigo heart
I know you’re trying your best
Something gets left in the rain
Torrent will wash it away

I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
I’ll miss your bright eyes
And I’ve got my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart

Indigo heart
Sky is a black .. almost blue
It’s just a trick of the soul
Holding and not letting go
Indigo heart
All of the time that we have
Love that I see in myself
For you and for nobody else

I’ll die at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
Just take your sweet time
I’ve got my whole life to kill
It’s almost sunrise .. a ribbon of light on the hill
The hangman’s waiting
And I have my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart .. they can’t kill your indigo heart

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
