Songs by Mark Perkins Dawe

28 and Blue

28 and Blue ©Mark Perkins Dawe 2016
[Verse 1]
Living in this old city, forget what it means to be free,
every day don’t like the way it’s changin’, you and me,
feel the need to disappear, can’t leave it all to fate,
time is sneakin’ up on us, soon, it’ll be half past too late, past too late,
[Verse 2]
dreaming of a better place, a simple life some breathing space,
sunny skies your smiling face a moonlit walk, your warm embrace,
and I’m lookin at you, dreamin’ ‘bout some place far from these alleys and avenues, lookin’ at you, 28 and blue.
[Verse 3]
Some place with no city lights, find something real in this life,
smell o’ pine trees and a fresh air breeze, coyotes howlin’ late at night,
Sun’s hot, getting hotter, need to run away find our free, yeah,
run away with me to the ocean, and that cooling breeze, that cooling breeze,
[Chorus 1]
It would be perfect there with you sifting sand by the deep blue sea,
and laying there with you under the shade of those, big palm trees,
perfect with you, where its 28 and bluuue, perfect with you, 28 and Blue.
[Final Chorus]
Yeah, dreaming of a better place, a simple life some breathing space,
sunny skies your smiling face a moonlit walk, your warm embrace,
and I’m lookin at you, dreamin’ ‘bout some place far from these alleys and avenues,
dreamin’ here with you, 28 and blue, and its perfect here with you,
28 and blue, dreamin’ here with you.

Fistful of That Thread

Fistful Of That Thread ©Mark Perkins Dawe 2017
[Verse 1]
Much too quiet in this place, feel the darkness creeping up some,
a little bit o’ chaos helps this need for some disruption,
hidden just behind this smile, darkness fans the fire,
hidden deep behind these eyes lies the chaos, I desire.
[Verse 2]
Some may try to frame the lines, I just can’t stay within,
silence screams, a challenge raised, push to the limit begins,
disruption knocks upon my door, grab a fistful of that thread,
from the darkness chaos calls to the unknown, unknown way ahead,
[Chorus]
Much too quiet in this place, feel the darkness creeping up some,
a little bit o’ chaos helps this need, for some disruption,
I’ll grab a fistful of that thread, another day closer to the cold bitter end,
pushing the limits right up to the edge, I’ll grab a fistful of that thread,
I’ll grab a fistful of that thread, mmm, fistful of that thread.
[Verse 3]
Wasting time, framing lines, I won’t stay within,
silence screams that challenge raised, I push to the limit again,
through the fray I move unscathed past broken shattered dreams,
time stands still, the way is clear, just a little bit ‘o chaos, is my peace.
[Chorus 2]
Much too quiet in this place, feel the darkness creeping up some,
a little bit o’ chaos helps this need, for some disruption,
I’ll grab a fistful of that thread, another day closer to the cold bitter end,
pushing the limits right up to the edge, I’ll grab a fistful of that thread,
I’ll grab a fistful of that thread.
[Final Chorus]
pushing the limits right up to the edge, stirring it up again and again,
another day closer to the cold bitter end, I’ll grab a fistful, one more fistful,
fistful of that thread, just one more fistful of that thread,
just one more fistful of that thread, just one more fistful, just one more fistful.
