lyrics

this emotion
this combination of colors
this congregation of lovers
I believe I've been confused
by the tragic
the melody of black magic
and all my bad habits
I believe I've been confused
You're changing hands
and i can see through it
I'm falling short and no one can prove it
there is nothing left
but ashes and fools
falling in love
ashes and fools
what do I know
the valley of old love
the symbols that washed up
like a fog on the river
what can I give her
what life can we both live
reflections of winter
like a fog on the river
this emotion
this combination of colors
this congregation of lovers
I believe I've been confused
by the tragic
the melody of black magic
and all my bad habits
I believe I've been confused
I believe
I believe I've been confused

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.
