about

This song was originally written in honor of my sister's wedding and was meant as a reflection of how I see their relationship with each other.

lyrics

If I could heal myself
the way I always think of you
when the sun is not so high
or the sky is not so blue
it's always like you said
there's nothing left to do but
smile along the way
and wait for something beautiful

If I could always love myself
the way you taught me to
when I'm walking down the road
and I'm holding on to you
it's something that you said
this much I know is true
I can see it in your eyes
the future is so beautiful

everything I know
everything I feel for you
nowhere is too far
even in the dark for you
baby when it rains
all I want to say to you
is beautiful

If I could heal myself
the way I always think of you
when the sun is not so high
or the sky is not so blue
I'm thinking to myself
if I could stay with you
I could grow into this love
sounds like something beautiful

when it rains
it's beautiful

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.
