    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

Originally from 'FORM" by HANDBENDI BRÚÐULEIKHÚS (www.handbendi.com)

The repeated rhodes pattern always sounded like it wanted to be a bit cooler than it was allowed to be in the show and so the idea came to sing about that too. I had assumed I'd get somebody actually cool to sing it but I liked it so much I kept it to sing myself.

lyrics

we were never cool kids
we had no pride
Hiding in our rooms
all the summertime

missing out on hanging out
with the wrong crowd
living it like they loving it
in the sun shine
in the sun shine
in the sun shine

now I walk the road I walk with head held high
knowing only I can live my life
all the things I used to be that brought me here
although sometimes dark
ah they made that spark

and that spark has grown into a fire
and that fire is mine all mine

we were never cool kids
and that's just fine
every fire burns in its own time
you never know what's down the road
and that's alright
you'll be living it like you’re loving it
in the sunshine
sunshine
sunshine

so walk this road with me with head held high
knowing only you and I
can be the ones to live our lives
all the things we used to be that brought us here
although sometimes dark
ah they made that spark

and that spark is burning as you grow
and its fire is yours and yours alone
