Morning Song


I wrote this song a few days ago with my 40th Birthday about to roll up.

It’s for my new collection of Internet songs The Book of Good Spells by my fictional band The Juju Beads. This collection is supposed to be like a hymn book to positive vibes.

When I was writing it I was thinking about those horror flicks where the protagonist just needs to survive the night to win the movie. I was thinking of what a relief that first glimpse of dawn always felt like.

Something kind of cool happened though. After I wrote my last post I realized my subconscious may have tricked me into expressing my feelings about where I am in my life right now.

I’m leaving some dark days behind and I don’t even know how I made it but I’m here. There are regrets of course but I’ve learned over time that regret leads to downward spirals and hope is what keeps a heart afloat.

I feel like a survivor somehow and Morning Song is about choosing to survive.

Hope you like it 🙂



Morning Song 

– The Juju Beads

 

(Easy Delicious)
Look out world we made it

The dark’s already faded

Pull in a breath – release it

We’re glad the night is done

 

At least until the next one

But please don’t think of that now

The daylight’s for the hopeful ones

Who wait all night for dawn

 

This song’s for the morning

This song’s for the light

Cos blessed are the ones who sing

Against the silence of the Night

 

And who knows maybe this time

If we don’t shut our eyes

The things that hunt us will subside

And the night will pass us by

 

Look out world we made it

The dark’s already faded

Pull in a breath – release it

We’re glad the night is done

 

At least until the next one

But please don’t think of that now

The daylight’s for the hopeful ones

Who pray until the dawn

 

And if you find your eyes a little grainy – don’t sleep

And if you count the cost, the loss of living – don’t weep

 

Look out world we made it

The dark’s already faded

Pull in a breath – release it

We’re glad the night is done

 

At least until the next one

But please don’t think of that now

The daylight’s for the hopeful ones

The daylight’s for the sun

A dose of escapism is is good for once in a while, just don’t forget to come back…

Magical Moonbeam

An Audio Doodle for Tony Ukpo’s Film “Random 11”

By The Juju Beads aka Easy Delicious

“Once upon a time there was a sad Princess
One day she caught a moonbeam in her hands
And the moonbeam asked her what she wanted
so she whispered in its ear…”

The world is broken 2x
Who can fix it

Fix it with sticks
On a night like this it’s clear my heart is anywhere but here So fly with me
