All That Lifts You Up

lyrics

You look good up there
With the lights on your face
I saw someone that’s
Better than this place
I sing your praises
From the rooftops baby
Give me one more chance

And even if tomorrow comes
I’ll be around
To prop you up when you come down
When you come down
When all that lifts you up
Lets you down

It’s like we were never young
Sometimes the strings get cold
But you just get better
The more that you get old
So save me the last kiss
And we’ll never let it go
We’ll just be here standing by the road
With all this time

even if tomorrow comes
I’ll be around
To prop you up when you come down
When you come down
When all that lifts you up
Lets you down

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.
