Always On My Mind

from Venus in Flight by Krister Axel

/

about

One of the very rare romance songs that was written before I met my wife. For the record, this one was written for Vanessa, who used to surprise me in LA by driving down from her apartment in San Francisco. The backing band here is pretty much an intact iteration of Paper Sun, the band started by Joel Eckels, and his then wife, Sally, which I joined, and we fronted as three co-lead singers for a number of years. We had an amazing live show and you can kind of feel that vibe on this track. Mixed by Chris James.

lyrics

I believe the colors and the silent words
There's a reason for the meeting between last and first
You're the road to North Beach on a summer night
You're the love that drives forever
You're the light that always shines
That always shines
That always shines
That always shines

I can keep a signal in the night for you
At your window by the ocean
In your cold bedroom
There's no cause for alarm
On a summer night
When you've wrapped yourself around me
You're the light that always shines
That always shines
That always shines
That always shines

It's all, it's all in time
The way the days combine
And I walk this crooked line
And you're always on my mind
You're always on my mind
You're the light that always shines

I believe the colors and the silent words
There's a reason for the meeting between last and first
You're the road to North Beach on a summer night
You're the love that comes together
You're the light that always shines
That always shines
That always shines
That always shines

It's all, it's all in time
The way the days combine
And I walk this crooked line
And you're always on my mind
You're always, always on my mind
You're always, always on my mind
You're always, always on my mind
You're the light that always shines
You're the light, you're the light that always shines
You're the light that always shines
You're the light, you're the light that always shines

Krister Axel New York

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.
