A Golden Thread

Each songwriter has a place inside themselves where they tap into their creativity. Music inspires us and connects us to ourselves and others in a unique way. The phrase 'a golden thread' is taken from one of my songs about creativity and a musical and spiritual link 'to another world'.  

I wrote 'A Golden Thread' as a tribute to Nick Drake. His songs have a spirituality and 'other world' feel that I have always loved. My song is released on the Soundzanobi album Other Visions in 2016.

A golden thread leading to another world
The chords of hope that light the room and darkened walls
Sound of the ‘horn’, its magic fills the evening air
Sound of a horn in melancholy cheer

Do not despair, music’s everywhere
Do not despair, music’s everywhere
For those who dwell on the magic of the evening air
Do not despair, music’s, cause everywhere

The fading light at dusk begins to fall
And hunched he sits, guitar and face turned towards the wall
A London bedsit stand with shutters closed
But the thinnest string brings forth the sweetest notes

Do not despair, music’s everywhere ………

Where is the secret land living by the breeze?
Where is the River Man hidden in the trees?

A golden thread leading to another world
The chords of hope that warm the hearts and darkened walls
A horn does sound the parting of the day
A horn does sound the parting of the ways

Do not despair, music’s everywhere ……..
