My Rose

from Fast Train by Krister Axel



When I was 25 I tried to drink the sky all up
I knew enough to know that I was getting older
and change was going to come soon
soon so soon
now it's been so long
since we both went off and started something
I know enough to know
that's where I want to go
I was the runaway
You were the runaway too
I had my days to find
I had my nights to find you

the seats are taken
but I feel there's room at the bar
and I'm not tired unless you are
you're my water in the desert
you're my wings to fly above the sun
my winter my summer
my rose
you started something

I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down yet

oh my rose


from Fast Train, released September 5, 2008

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.
