    Not many of these will be printed, so get them while they are here. Digital downloads are greener but some people really love cds so I had to do at least one run.

lyrics

Once upon a dreamer, once upon a dream
I try to be forgiven for all the things I’ve seen
time is just like water flowing to the sea
never to return but always a part of me
we all have our prisoners and we all have our chains
we all want to be here, we all want to be saved
waiting for the sunshine waiting for the rain
waiting for the blue sky waiting for the gray

Let this be the day, we put our past away
let us try to change the wars that we have made
let this be the day we throw our guns away

help me with my fortune, help me lift my heart
help me change the patterns of correction in the stars
don’t believe the chatter or wander in the dark
see the sun is rising and walk into the fire

Let this be the day, we put our past away
let us try to change the wars that we have made
let this be the day we throw our guns away

I throw my guns away
so throw your guns away

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.
