MY SOUL, MY SPIRIT

MET YOUR TRAIN DOWN AT THE STATION
YOU WERE WALKING THROUGH A DREAM
I HAD
LAST NIGHT I WAS SO FULL OF PASSION
YOU HAD NOTHING MUCH TO SAY
EXCEPT THAT I LOOKED SO SAD
THAT YOU HAD TO JUST LOOK AWAY
MY SOUL, MY SPIRIT, MY LOVE FOR YOU
ONLY IN MY DREAMS DO FANATSIES COME TRUE
SPINNING IN REVOLVING DOORS
YOU WERE FEELING SO CONFUSED
THAT
YOU WOULD NOT CRY OUT FOR MORE
I WAITED ON THE PLATFORM
I WAS DANCING WITH A MUSE
OR TWO
YOUR SMILE MADE ME WARM.

FAMILY PICNIC JULY 4, 1991, IN A PARK IN LYNDHURST. A PLACE THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR KANE BEING NAMED KANE. I WAS TELLING TD ABOUT THIS DREAM I HAD LAST NIGHT. AND HOW I HAD FIGURED TO PUT IT TO SONG. HE ALSO WAS HAVING A RESTLESS NIGHT…THIS TUNE WOULD NOT GO AWAY. SO HE FETCHED THE GTR WHILE I JOTTED. THE MELODY WAS PRETTY MUCH IN MY MIND, AND THE TUNE AKIN TO PORTISHEAD. TD STARTS FINGERPICKING THIS THIS THAT WENT PERFECT. AS BALLAD IT WAS AWESOME, AND THE DREAMY VERSION IS THE SHIT. BUT I HAVE A LAMENT ABOUT THE RECORDING. I LOVE MY TAKE ON THE VERSE AND BBC’s TAKE ON THE CHORUS. SO TECHNICALLY I HAVE NO VERSION I CONSIDER PERFECT. THOUGH THE ACCUSTIC VERSION HAS MANY MERITS, MOSTLY TD’s SOLO.
17 YRS LATER…
I’M CHECKING OUT YOU TUBE VIDS AND SEEING THAT PEOPLE LIKE WATCHING SMOKERS.
WELL DRIFTING SMOKE IS A STABLE OF MOVIE SHOTS, CASABLANCA ANYONE. I INVISIONED A SERIES OF SHOTS OF PEOPLE SMOKING. ‘SONGBIRD’ WAS THE FIRST CHOICE. BUT IT WAS TOO SHORT FOR ALL THE SHOTS I HAD IN MIND AND I WAS HESITANT TO USE A BBC SONG WITHOUT HER PERMISSION. SO THIS ONE GOT THE DUTY AND THE VIDEO KNOWN AS ‘SMOKE AND MIRRORS’ WAS BORN. SUCSESSFULL AS MUSIC VIDEOS GO AND MISSING ABOUT HALF THE SHOTS THAT WOULD BECOME ‘SMOKE AND MIRRORS 2’. IN 2 I USED ‘SONGBIRD’ SINCE AFTER ALL IT IS MY SONG AS MUCH AS HERS. THERE IS A LAMENT TO THIS VID THOUGH. . .
THE FIRST SHOT I SAW WAS OF SUSAN SMOKING ONE DAY. (THE SECOND SHOT OF ALISON IN THE FIRST VIDEO) BUT WHEN FILMING TIME CAME SHE PASSED ON BEING IN IT. I PRESSED HER AGAIN IN PART 2 BUT SHE AGAIN PASSED. THIS TIME I DID NOT SHOOT THE SCENE WITH SOMEONE ELSE. SO THE VIDEO IS MISSING THIS…
THERE IS A SHOT OF A GIRL AND GUY SMOKING WITH EACH OTHER,
A SHOT OF TWO BOYS,
AND THEN WAS MEANT TO BE TWO GIRLS.
