Illuminate The Sky

lyrics

I woke up today and my voice was
Older than my heart
Which carries a new scar
The image of a better place
Let me see the earth dressed
For the seasons

Diamonds in the street
Spotlights in the wild
Tonight I watch an angel
Shoot across the sky
Illuminate the sky

Even as my dreams run slowly
Beneath this printed sunset
They begin to die
We replace the impossible
With the same wicked fever
That burned heaven to the ground

Diamonds in the street
Spotlights in the wild
Tonight I watch an angel
Illuminate the sky
Shoot across the sky

I opened up my veins
Showed you what I believe
I hope you never change
I hope you never change
I hope you will always shine
I hope you never change

The stars in your eyes
Illuminate the sky

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.
