about

This was a very early version with my band "albion moonlight" about 6 or 7 years before the solo "albion moonlight and the sea of troubles" concept album. the song in this style, instead of the waltz style on my album, was actually born out of a version done with warren zevon and don henley's band and the then drummer for the wallflowers. i think you will really like that one when i finally release it around the same time it appears in a TV show about warren zevon coming less than a year from now.

lyrics

Lord
found another place to put my passion,
if only for a night 'til morning shines.
a heavy make-up, drunken, cheap replacement,
to hold me 'til i leave this night behind.
lord it might be hard to reach me now,
sometimes it hurts to try to smile
i’ll drop a line if i can find the time...
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
forgive me just this one denial
lord, i’ll be busy for a while...
i’d brave the night alone if i were crazier,
pull my collar tight against the cold.
and drop my feet to steps i’ve laid before me,
but i’m not growing, only growing old.
lord i guess i’ve gone astray for now,
sometimes i’m sadly juvenile,
don’t try to call, i wont be home at all...
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
forgive me just this one denial
lord, i’ll be busy for a while...
makes no sense pretending i’m surprised lord,
we both knew i’d only give so much.
seems i’m always planning for the ending,
but lord if you can hear me, keep in touch.
lord forgive me, but it’s over now,
sometimes it’s hard to reconcile,
so now, you see, you must watch over me...
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
lord, i’ll be busy for a while
forgive me just this one denial
lord, i’ll be busy for a while...
