Good days come and good days go leaves will fall and grass will grow the river is low the mountain is tall I’ll be there to catch your fall All those wars will never teach you because the darkness never breaks just beneath the dirt we’re moving there’s only more of what we make I have so much love for you in my heart I can feel tomorrow’s new day is ours I believe I saw your face in the stars last night I dreamed I was awake last night I dreamed I was awake Now we see we are together Now we see we have so much the only point to being happy is if it is something you can touch I have so much love for you in my heart I can feel tomorrow’s new day is ours I believe I love you just as you are last night I dreamed I was awake last night I dreamed I was awake When the flames rise up But the light won't shine When you lose your way in the dark I will catch your fall I will catch your fall Good days come and good days go leaves will fall and grass will grow the river is low the mountain is tall I’ll be there to catch your fall

Pretty Lies 04:02
I had a feeling That we were halfway gone before tonight That there just might be no more one-last-time There’s no resistance Nothing that can fight this downward spiral Whiskey-smoke and the blunt force of denial Burning all your letters in the fire I knew you were coming You never could leave bad enough alone Never had the good sense to stay home But you look too good to leave out in the cold With your pretty lies, pretty lies You can stay, but just for the night every time I put my heart on the line You leave me lonely... This time is different All the games we play are getting old Freedom is a long and lonely road I've had some lovers But no one makes me feel like calling back Maybe this is what I’ve come to now Wishing I was somewhere in your arms With your pretty lies, pretty lies All I have is pretty lies Every time I put my heart on the line You leave me lonely Maybe I can keep you warm? I couldn’t sleep and your light was on Pretty lies, pretty lies All I have is pretty lies Every time I put my heart on the line You leave me lonely

Yellow Moon 02:53
The sky is clear now The clouds are gone The air is cold and I just put your sweater on I still miss you Every day I'm looking for the strength To find another way It was always you and our perfect love That kept me together when I'd had enough Always you, showing me the truth A yellow moon is shining down On nights that last forever now The sun that always rises without a sound What am I supposed to do now What am I supposed to do now There is no religion No kind of drug That can make me feel like there's a chance of waking up Every day is a prison Every word a lie In every face I see a hope I know I'll never find It was always you and our perfect love That kept me together when I'd had enough Always you, showing me the truth A yellow moon is shining down On nights that last forever now The sun that always rises without a sound What am I supposed to do now What am I supposed to do now What am I supposed to do now What am I supposed to do now

about

With production help from Tyler Fortier and Sean McCoy, I made this album early this year and we finished up production and post during quarantine. I am very proud of these songs, and I hope you enjoy them.

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.
