about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

Hi, my name is Krister Axel. I am a roots-rock veteran of the indie music scene, and I have a degree in Poetry. I am a published lyricist, composer, and songwriter. 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.
My music blog is called CHILLFILTR.

Track Name: Follow the Light
Black cat walking by the side of the road
Come down from the hills to the valley below
Walking, running or waiting to die
For a few kind words in the cold of the night
It's all right
Follow the light

Blood moon rising up the side of the hill
The trees are all burning and the buckets are filled
Walking, running or waiting to die
For a few kind words in the cold of the night
It's all right
Follow the light
To where the water becomes life
To where the stars fill up the night
And it’s all right
It’s all right

Follow the light
Track Name: Someday
Someday I will fall
Into the river, into the river
I will fall alone, into the river
Into the river I will fall
Someday, into the river
Before the hills are white with snow

Someday, some day

Someday I will fall
Into the river, into the river
I will fall someday, into the river
Into the river I will fall
Alone, into the river
Before I’m underneath the world

Someday, some day

I know that you’ll be back again
I see you running against the wind

Someday I will fall
Into the river, into the river
I will fall alone, into the river
Into the river I will fall
Someday, into the river
Before the hills are white with snow

Someday, some day
Track Name: A LIttle Dying
All my days and all my nights
All my love and all my wine
Every stretch of open space
And vintage lace
It’s all for you
It’s all for you
It’s all for you
Oh my love
Oh my love

All these flames of love and war
All these wounds and all these cures
And the road to paradise
Is in your eyes
I wait for you
I weep for you
I die for you
Oh my love
Oh my love
