Before the beautiful dawn

In the still crisp air before the next wave
I turn towards the warming fingers of the sun
filled with longing I open my mouth and sing

There was a time out there in the teeming world
when I was a child needing to be safe
so I sang out loud hoping you might see me

As if in quiet reflection at the end of a previous life
there is clarity that a new path is the way forward
and that which was before is not

Some times we are made bright and new in the fading shadows
before the beautiful dawn when what we thought
could be relied on and who we were is gone

Deep words my friend. What new path are you venturing on? Of course the older we get, the less U-turns we can take on life's road. Wouldn't you agree?

So I say, grab what you want while you can! :)

I like that.Inspiring.Speaks to the soul.For some reason I could almost hear you singing that,and the emotion of it puts me in mind of "In the Bloom"(?)on the Myspace set of tunes.I absolutely love that song too by the way.

Lovely mate , lovely. I'd give my right hand to be able to say stuff people need to hear.

Are Raffa's days numbered now?

Nice words Rob, also nice to see a new dvd coming, things happens around the band.....great!!
I also want to send a big thank you to Neil who was so kind to send me a copy of metal Britannia and some old BBC recordings of the band....I'm overwhelmed Neil!!
Happy easter to all of you!!

The new DVD arived today: 48 minutes of sheer bliss. The quality is amazing. Curious translations on American Boy Soldier.
The 1973 stuff reminds me of the gigs at Boscombe Ballrooms. I think the opening act one night was Blodwyn Pig or some other incarnation of Mick Abrahams.

Victor really looks like he was a true fashion icon on this. He could have been as big as Peter Frampton! It's always good to have a pretty (thing) boy in the band to pull the young ladies, eh Rob?
Any idea what he has been up to all these years?

Love & peace to you all

Have to agree with above comments, my dvd arrived yesterday and it's stunning, made me feel 17 again:-)

Only Liverpool and Fulham left in Europe then Rob, let's hope it saves Rafa's job, we don't want you to lose him:-))

Sorry to gloat Dazza, but I'm still watching this space. EPL Champions record number of goals scored and stopped the mancs from overtaking your record. The (football) future is rosy blue at the moment, enjoy next years run in the Europa league, and please keep Rafa, we love him:-))

Hung parliament? All trying to do their dirty deals, In my opinion they should all be hung!!!!
