Album Notes
This song has a unique history. It was originally supposed to be on my first album “The Sun” way back when however a technical glitch kept it from appearing on that historic recording. That was back in 1995. It then sat for the next 24 years collecting dust (not the album just the light particles that float around in the air and eventually settle on things.). Well this year I pulled it out and ‘dusted’ it off and started to work on it again. I am glad I did as the 24 years it sat the technology that has become available has allowed me to realize the song in a way that fills it out much more than I could have back in 1995. Just having the Mind Fry Orchestra available to me was a huge boost to how this turned out. That technical glitch was, retrospectively, a blessing not a curse.

Here are the lyrics:

You see as you do I don’t why must you go on
there’s no right or wrong only how we feel
I don’t see how you can feel alone
I am by myself and yet at home

do not stand in my way
for I will not force you out
I will merely have to wait
I will merely have to wait

do not take this wrong I mean no harm to you
this is all I can do all I can do
please believe my plea I mean to speak the truth
I can not be boxed I need a room with a view

stand in my way and I’ll stand aside
I will not push will not push
they’ll be no peace until we realize
there’s no peace without trust
what do you know
how does it feel
our desires would have to be as one
will you take what is yours
or keep what you steal
the end then has certainly begun

I may see as you do someday
that does not mean I will change my view
that is then now is the time of which we speak
it is all I can do all I can do
