Lyrics – Whole life Through

Nov 16 2014

Hey gang

The next song that we will be recording – after releasing battles this week- is a song called Whole Life Through. First draft of this was written two yearw ago. Its a love song, hope you like it.

WHOLE LIFE THROUGH – words by Dan Patmore

Worlds collide in our eyes
We’ll be fine, if we stick together.
You and me, lets raise a family,
And we will growth forever

We’ll learn grace
And we’ll hold hope
We’ll stay strong
This whole life through

Hand in hand, we’ll dream our plan
And Walk the leaves in love.
In our peace, we’ll find belief
That we can do anything.

We’ll learn grace
And we’ll hold hope
We’ll stay strong
This whole life through

If we stick together
We will be fine.
If we keep it simple
You know we’ll be alright.

We’ll learn grace
And we’ll hold hope
We’ll stay strong
This whole life through

And I’ll love you,
This whole life through.

Peace

Dan x

Starlings and Sparrows update

Nov 16 2014

Hey gang

Firstly, while the site has been pretty quiet, there are a few more updates being made through the Starlings and Sparrows Facebook page.

Been working through lots of songs, and now have a hatful of unfinished songs to still work through and a fistful of finished songs, the first of which has now been shared – listen to battles now

Starlings and Sparrows open Rehearsal

I’ve spent some time blooding new material live at The Sunset Lounge (both on guitar and uke – the guitar was ill advised) as well as doing some open rehearsals with Rich and our good friend The Plucky Haggis

A Sunday Poem

Aug 23 2014

hey

scribbled this quickly in the garden last Sunday, thought I’d share it. Trying to warm up my creativity and imagination again….

Wrapped in swirls
the wind hugs my soul
as I idly give in
to peace on earth

a setting sun falls away
behind trees and sheds
and another day

clouds draw in
as shadows change
a mind slumber
yet still awake

I choose this bliss
I choose to be free
and allow myself
to be really me

lyrics – Battles

Aug 16 2014

Hey

exciting week, doing some writing, getting a band member and starting recording.

First Starlings and Sparrows session with Rich from Rise Bailey Rise involved ukes, harmonies, hand claps, finger clicks, djembes, tambourines and some recording!

Few bits of tidying to do on the track, plus Rich is going to add some melodica, bass and other vocals. after that we will set to mixing it. Really looking forward to sharing it with you all.

In the mean time I thought id share the lyrics with you.

Battles by Starlings and Sparrows
(words by Dan Patmore)

I’m sorry to say
But I won’t fight you.
As it turns out,
There’s not much that I’d die for.

I wanna live my life and carry on

I fought battles
When I was young.
I fought kings,
And everyone.
Thought I knew,
Who I should be.
I made myself,
So unhappy.

I wanna live my life and carry on.

Since then,
You’ve changed me.
We’ve built our lives, happily.
And I’ve become,
who I wanted to be.
Where you are,
Is where I’ll be.

We wanna live our lives and carry on.

I’m sorry to say
But I won’t fight you.
As it turns out,
There’s not much that I’d die for.

Hey world wide web

things other than work and parenting are happening. I’m drawing and im writing music again!  I’m even going so far as to set up a new music project, which I’m calling Starlings and Sparrows.

It’s going to be an indie folk thing, working on new material and hoping to hit some open mics soon. going to use those to drum up a band to play with. I’ve set up a facebook page to track what’s going on, please head over there to like it.

In the meantime im going to start updating the site a bit.

cheers
