about

These are songs that were recorded in the past 5 years but were not included in any of my albums.

The cover art is by my wife who took a picture of me in a park and decided to paint it later.

Track Name: Yalda
Leaves are falling, my baby's on her way
Far from me and there's not much left to say
She'll ride the river of my tears on her way
Seven Sister (are) rising from the east
The hunter's comin' and my baby's without me.

Ten thousand years' gone by since I've been left alone
My baby's gone and I've been livin' on my own
In mist of black forest of love I'm sent to roam
Seven Sister (are) riding to the west
The hunter's comin' and my baby doesn't rest.

Leaves are falling, my baby's on her way
Far from me and there's not much left to say
She'll ride the river of my tears on her way
Seven Sister (are) rising from the east
The hunter's comin' and my baby's without me.
Track Name: Pervenova
Guess you heard 'bout a bad man
Pervenova was his name
Hangs around the night clubs downtown
Looking for his simple prey.
Came across a lonely woman
who was standing by herself,
nurturing a drink in one hand,
'nother hand on a sterling shelf.
Hey here we go, way to go, Pervenova!

"No reason to be concerned,
No reason to be afraid.
I'm just a normal nice guy"
said the deceiver to prey.
"Let's finish our drinks for now,
then we shall go to my place.
I'll show you my collections
of my exotic taste."
Hey, what a pitch for a bang, Pervenova!

"What a dingy place you have got"
said the beauty to hunter.
"I'm getting real hot now
tell me the way to your bed."
When he started to undress her,
she said it was time to say.
She's not a real woman (but)
she'd be one for a handsome pay.
Hey here we go, way to go, Pervenova!
Track Name: One Sunday Afternoon
On a sunday afternoon
standing with a red balloon.
She'll be with me soon
or I will meet my doom.
It's only three o'clock
wont freeze with any luck.
I anticipate my way
to a blissful happy day.

On a cold and sunny afternoon,
I'm standing here staring at the moon.
Waiting for my baby because
she's coming on a 60 bus.
Waiting for her to show the way
to ecstasy and a happy day, yeah.

Got my love on my mind,
a love so hard to find.
My baby's one of a kind.
She'll tease me, I wont mind.
I'm filled with anticipation
but running out of patience.
If she wont be here in an hour
My life will be so dire.

On a cold and sunny afternoon,
I'm standing here looking at the moon.
The 60 bus is being late,
my darling one aint here yet.
Think I'm gonna loose my mind,
no solace here or there to find.
Track Name: Renea (pseudo live)
Oh Renea, where're you goin'?
Sat down and told me you love me, now you're leavin'.
Oh babe, I'm your man.
Gonna love you (and) keep you satisfied.

You say:
"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
(You) got me goin'.

"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
(You) got me goin' Renea!

Oh Renea, you make me crazy,
flirting around with bunch of other guys.
Oh babe, don't you know
I'm the one who loves you all the time.

You say:
"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
(You) got me goin'.

"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
Where're you goin' Renea?!

Oh Renea, don't you love me?
I wanna be with you every day and night.
Oh babe, can't you see?
No one got the hots for you more than me.

You say:
"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
(You) got me goin'.

"Round and round, go around, turn around"
(It's) same old story.
"Come on in, (no) don't come in, you're too fast!"
You so so tricky, Renea!

Oh Renea, you're so fine!
Swear to the heavens above that you'll be mine.
Oh babe, you're so groovy.
Won't you shake your body next to mine?
Track Name: You & Me & Me & You
On the way to a swimming pool,
saw a brown eyed girl who made me think about
all the happy days with you.
How we use to laugh and how we sang along
very loud and out of tune.
Nothing to fear and nothing to be ashamed about,
there was only me and you.

What I cared about was you and me,
me and you going home.

When I got to 'swimming pool,
I was surprised to see you hanging out
getting tan and looking cool.
Saw you close your eyes with your body on the ground.
Thought of making my own move.
Then I saw a chap who was tall and well around,
sitting there next to you.

Wrap my head around, you and him
he and you going home.

Went down to south of Georgia,
taking myself up to task,
finding the better half of mine
who wont make think of past.

Came across a lady who was drinking pretty fast,
singing "Hallelujah, my time's come at last."
She said: "Do you believe in destiny?"
"No, I don't M'am."
"It's relief!" she said to me, "My name is Anne."

Staring at the corner of the pavement and the wall
came to realization and the beauty of it all.
Change's ever lasting and nothing's made to last
all the empty moment will some day come to pass.

She said to me sarcastically, "Are you my man?"
(I) said with a glee, most cheerfully:
"Yes I am M'am!"
Track Name: Devil's Tea Party
Pour your rage right on me
Rave up, set yourself free
Shake your head in fury
Relish your lunacy
Follow your destiny
Receive insanity
Rage on, live out your days
in frenzy serving me.

I'm the black of your fears
Shady part of your dreams
Taught you 'bout your own greed
In your soul plant my seed
Showed you' beauty of lies
Take stock of your own pride
Live only for today
Pay for eternity.

Despise humanity
Offer gift of cruelty
Give them your liberty
From their homes and country
Replace God with Money
Beg and barrow and steal
Come and feed on this soul
'cause he will never know.
Track Name: Soldier Boy
I was once a soldier just like you
young and restless, mean and rude.
Thought I could conquer the world
till one night I faced the truth.

On a patrol on a foreign land
came to see, kill to defend
my country and all its worth
thousand miles away from home.

And I'm bound in contradiction
and a sense of pride
I can't say what I want to
without a sense of contrite.

Now I see the rest of my days
spent with regret, full of despair.
Wish I could take those days back
relive every single day.

Take my advice little boy
don't become their soldier toy.
Spend your life with true honor,
learn to become a doctor.

And I'm bound in contradiction
and a sense of pride
I can't say what I want to
without a sense of contrite.

I was once a soldier like you
young and restless, mean and rude.
Thought I could conquer the world
till one night I faced the truth.

On a patrol on a foreign land
came to see, kill to defend
my country and all its worth
thousand miles away from home.
