Alexi Murdoch - Some Day Soon

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!


Alexi Murdoch - Some Day Soon (2011)

"Daddy, this is go-to sleep music", is the phrase from my 4 year old when I play this song. If only she listened to the lyrics! Alexi Murdoch is a Scottish singer/songwriter who has released a number of critically acclaimed albums, Time Without Consequence (2006) and The soundtrack of the 2009 film Away We Go.

Some day soon, features on his 2011 release, Towards the  Sun and is a poignant song about the loss of a parent and has all the qualities of a Nick Drake masterpiece.  I highly recommend that you give them a spin!

I love my father and I love him well

I hope to see him someday soon
I love my father and I love him well
I hope to see him someday soon



Cause where I live, it gets dark at night
The kind of dark eats up the light
Yeah where I live, it gets dark at night
The kind of dark eats up the light
And you know that, mother, I'd be lying
If I didn't tell you I'm afraid of night



And as I dream I'm falling down
The world moves without a sound
I'm lost as sure as I was found
The sun comes up without a sound



So I up and face another day
And I hope that kindness comes your way
Yeah I'll up and face another day
And I hope that kindness comes your way
This for you I pray
I pray for you today



And in the morning I'll be gone
Wherefore and to cannot be told
Yes in the morning I'll be gone
Wherefore and to cannot be told
A mind filled with memories
Weigh me down like gold



I love my father and I love him well
I hope to see him someday soon
I love my father and I love him well
I hope to see him someday soon
