lyrics

All for you
The long expensive road to nothing new
These unappreciated lines for you
Falling on this tough love crowd, it’s true
I did it all for you
Open arms
There’s nothing better than those ample charms
Somewhere waiting for the world to start
Somehow afflicted by a broken heart
Looking for those open arms

When I was a prince of the world
All I had was a long list of words
All I saw I could touch with my hands
All I needed was
All I needed was a chance

Those days are gone
I think I see your yesterdays moved on
They left behind that dirty smile you’ve got
Younger than your timeless ways
Your yesterdays
I know all your tricks
I hate the way your heart can hurt like this
I hate the way my plan can miss like this
But there’s no changing what my future is
I know all your tricks

When I was ahead of it all
And I could see what was coming along
Everybody knew the way to get home, but me
All I needed was
All I needed was a dream

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
