about

1. Spectacular Failure (Acoustic) is song about me.

2. I Want to Dance with You (IW2DWU) is about being in love with someone and that first important (and scary) step. It's the dance of life!

3. Higher and Farther continues the love theme. I like the idea of Shakespeare's "He doth protest too much!". It was nicely done in the 10cc song "I'm not in love". It's the same deceit that I used in this song where the lyrics are saying something like "stick with me babe and you'll go far" and the truth actually is "I'm no-one, nothing and no-where without you!"

4. Our Sons are Alright is a song about realising that, despite parental fears, our kids are okay! Everything's good!

5. Little Sister is a song about a little sister!!!

6. Set Course for the Sun is an "autumnal" song about dying! (In a warm and happy way! A resigned approach.)

7. Only We Remain is a love song. This started life as a much bigger song but it was heading waaaay in the wrong direction, so this is a back to basics version. The sentiment is that "nothing can come between us", literally, because the emotion is so powerful that I could rip the world apart with my hands.

8. The End of Time (VA) was written for the Mayan End of Time contemporarily predicted for 21/12/2012 :-)

Track Name: Spectacular Failure Acoustic
Spectacular Failure Acoustic by Jackson Greenhorn (2010)

I remember you waving your arms through a window
I saw you from the street and knew that you were flying
I had tears in my eyes and was so proud
At how you win the world without even trying

And if I had my time again
I would tell you, It would all be just time
You'ld believe me, You would need me
And I would not be this spectacular failure

I hear your stories and all the episodes of your day
I form opinions but fear for your health
I can't be dispassionate about the things you say
But though the world keeps changing, you're still true to yourself

And if I had my time again
I would tell you, It would all be just time
You'ld believe me, You would need me
And I would not be this spectacular failure

Oh I know I know I know I could have done better
The only way to learn is by making mistakes
And I've tried my best to do things to the letter
But experience tells me that I don't have what it takes

And if I had my time again
I would tell you, It would all be just time
You'ld believe me, You would need me
And I would not be this spectacular failure

I was there at a time I wasn't needed
I hung around not sure of what to do
I couldn't tell if I failed or I suceeded
But I failed to be there when I was needed by you
Yeah...

And if I had my time again
I would tell, you it would all be just fine
You'ld believe me, you would need me
And I would not be... this spectacular failure

And if I had my time again, which I don't
I would tell, you it would all be just fine, which it won't
You'ld beleive me, you would need me
And I would not be... this spectacular failure
Track Name: I Want to Dance with You
I Want to Dance with You by Jackson Greenhorn

I Don.t have any words and there;s nothing I can say...
...I just want to dance!

It's now or never, this dance could last forever.
Track Name: Higher and Farther
Higher and Farther by Jackson Greenhorn

I,
I took a ride,
Into the great unknown,
With you.
Flying higher and farther than I could do on my own.

You,
Are much better,
Hanging around,
With me.
Flying higher and farther than I could do on my own.

We,
Should always be,
Close at hand
To each other.
Flying higher and farther than I could do on my own.
Track Name: Our Sons are Alright
Our Sons are Alright by Jackson Greenhorn

When I was a boy and looking for a faith in something
I was swimming in the warmth of a belonging
And feeling like a new self was dawning
I would fantasize I'm walking through the street
Touching all I meet and living on air

We are each of us, survivors
Of all the genetics gone before
All the ancestoral echoes
That make us who we are
And it gives me hope for the future
Because our sons are alright.

We are each of us, survivors
Of all the genetics gone before
All the ancestoral echoes
That make us who we are
And it gives me hope for the future
Because our sons are alright.

And now I'm hearing angels in my head
And even though I'm a scientist now instead
I still have a need for a spiritual self
A sense of common bond
A feeling I can call upon
To help me reach out to my fellow man

Our Sons are alright...
Track Name: Set Course for the Sun
Set Course for the Sun by Jackson Greenhorn (2010)

The day has gone...
I'm feeling weary and my eyes are burning
The time has come to go home
And we all know...
That life continues when the world stops turning
So stand beside me when you are alone

We'll be like red sails in the sunset
What a happy time we'll have
And if we drift apart sometimes
Your anchor is in my heart
So give me one kiss goodbye and set course for the sun

You and I...
Know each other well enough by now
To understand how we feel
But now and then...
A little tiny bit of doubt emerges
So don't feel bad if you have tears to conceal

We'll be like red sails in the sunset
What a happy time we'll have
And if we drift apart sometimes
Your anchor is in my heart
So give me one kiss goodbye and set course for the sun

Yeah we all know...
That life continues when the world stops turning
So stand beside me when you are alone

We'll be like red sails in the sunset
What a happy time we'll have
And if we drift apart sometimes
Your anchor is in my heart
So give me one kiss goodbye and set course for the sun
Track Name: The End of Time (VA)
Once in a lifetime, we build, we dig, we sow,
And indomitably, we breath, we learn, we grow.
All the endeavour, and the clever things we do or treasure,
Fade in a moment, of what seems unscripted cruelty,
And so, goodnight.

I'll be with you at the end of time,
And we'll hold hands... At the end of time,
Where nothing begins again... The cycle begins.

With so little lifetime, to see, to do, to be,
And we in our infancy, our lives are filled with need,
And so, what of dignity, and humanity of soul and kin,
To be ripped from another, by a synchronous, universal whim,
And so, goodnight.

I'll be with you at the end of time,
And we'll hold hands... At the end of time,
Where nothing begins again... The cycle begins.

All the clever things we do, fade in a moment.

Just stay close, hold my hand, I have so much to tell you,
I always felt, I always knew, this moment was approaching,
Say nothing to me, hold me close, words are not important now,
I believe we'll be together, somehow...
Because I won't say never.
No I won't say never!
