about

I was still in my 30s when I wrote this song. I produced this with my friend Angel in his living room, right off Hollywood Boulevard and Cherokee st. We had to play all the instruments between the two of us. One of the only songs in existence where I am actually playing electric bass. No punches y'all! They call me the one take wonder. Still, you would really only call this demo quality - I had to release it anyway because I love this track so much.

lyrics

Take the highway to the coast
Down Manhattan beach
Together, separate
Almost out of reach
There's no other way
Faces made of clay

I believe in a gift
Sweet and bitter breath
Holding out for waterfalls
Something I can't forget
What I never had:
A taste for looking back

And I go through the motions of devotion
You're a treasure, I'm a hunter
Night is ruled by
Venus in flight
Watching over you
Watching over you

She'll be watching over
Watching over you
She'll be watching over
Watching over you

And I go through the motions of devotion
You're a treasure, I'm a hunter
Night is ruled by
Venus in flight
Watching over you
Night is ruled by
Venus in flight
Watching over you
Watching over you
Watching over you
Watching over you
Watching over you
Watching over you

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.
