True (free) 02:58
What once was lost is still so far gone what once was true is a part of you because I don't know if you're thinking what I'm thinking too but I will be there with you we join in praise of all those who gave let he who doubts see the sun come out because I don't know if you're feeling what I'm feeling too but I will be there with you because I don't know if you're thinking what I'm thinking too but I will be there with you with you with you

What You Got (free) 03:21
Won't you believe me I won't change a word don't you deceive me or no one ever learns that now is the best of times and all these lies just make us blind and everybody knows the only way I'll leave is with you by my side the only place I'll go is where you hide when I see your face you lift me up the only thing I want is what you got now that I see you and I can feel your heart now that I see you and no one is in the dark this fortune is in our hands there's no way out if it goes as planned and everybody knows the only way I'll leave is with you by my side the only place I'll go is where you hide when I see your face you lift me up the only thing I want is what you got you're the way I waste my time you're the way I lose my mind just a rose beside the road the only way I'll leave is with you by my side the only place I'll go is where you hide when I see your face you lift me up the only thing I want is what you got the only thing I want is what you got the only thing I want is what you got you're the only thing the only thing I want is what you got

The Light 03:24
Sometime in the morning I was not myself having stood, and lost and fallen in debt I know what you're doing I know what you've done but you won't have to change me because I won't use too much You're the light I want to shine for you're the light I want to shine for you You're the light I want to shine for now, and ever when I was a liar when I was a thief when I wore the chains of my own grief somewhere in the distance I could see myself falling down the mountain with nothing left You're the light I want to shine for you're the light I want to shine for you You're the light I want to shine for now, and ever when you leave take a part of me when you leave you take a part of me You're the light I want to shine for now, and ever

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.
