about

This is a song I originally wrote for slide guitar in Madison in my college days. It took me almost 10 years to get it recorded properly. Lately, this song has been getting crazy spins on Pandora for some reason.

lyrics

Stay if you want to stay
take what you want to take
love who you want to love
and break what you're tired of
and don't worry
that the world wants to self-destruct
don't worry
just stay until you've had enough
don't leave before you've had enough

run if you want to run
I'll find you in another life
singing about the lazy sun
waiting for my girl to come
and don't worry
that the world wants to break you down
when it hurts me
my pain doesn't make a sound
it's the sex that gets the feelings out

and don't worry
that the world wants to break you down
don't worry
just stay until it comes around
just stay until it comes around

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.
