lyrics

If this old world is going to pass me by
I won't try, I won't try
If this old world is going to pass me by
then I won't try at all
we've never met but you know my name
just leave me here, just leave me here
we've never met but you know my name
just leave me here alone

pain and joy
my pain and joy
my pain and joy

just leave me here with the precious night
in all my pain, in all my pain
just leave me here with the precious night
in all my pain and joy

pain and joy
my pain and joy
my pain and joy

all my pain and joy
my pain and joy

holds all these walls together
can't keep a bed for very long
can't see the sun is rising
don't know the way to get back home

all my pain and joy
my pain and joy

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.
