Brooklyn

lyrics

She said show me all the ways that you would hold me
The way that you feel empty to know I’m not around
Teach me all the things that you find holy
About living in the city and finding your way home
Tell me I am not alone
Tell me I am not alone

All the way out
All the way down

Brooklyn, she’s like poetry in the morning
She mends my faith when I am broken, a bridge over the past
She says baby, I’ll change my shoes and pull my hair back
Throw some hope into this backpack and see what comes of the day
They say love gets in the way
They say love gets in the way

All the way out
All the way down
All the way in
Leads me back to Brooklyn

Leads me back to Brooklyn
Leads me back to Brooklyn
Fate won’t let me down

Brooklyn follows birds across the ocean
Leaves her white Honda running and settles on a star
They say love can break your heart

All the way out
All the way down
All the way in
Leads me back to Brooklyn

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.
