Dreams of Avalon (Song I Wrote Dedicated To Jesi)

Walking down the boulevard
Making my way through Scotland Yard
Finding the place where we first kissed
And through the crowd I thought I caught a glimpse
Stopping fast, I felt my heart began to race,
Looking ’round, I swore that I had seen your face.

Five Years had passed since we’d been here
The time had simply disappeared.
An hour glass of time had gone
And still your memory will lead me on.
In a daze, my weary legs carry me on.
Just like the days when we would dream of Avalon

A Horseback Ride through the Everglade
Living on the vows that we had made.
King Arthur’s Knights singing our song.
When we would dream of Avalon.

My one last time in Scotland Yard
Passing by a stoic guard
I found the place where we first kissed.
There you stood, my eyes became amist.
Standing there, I smiled as I began to cry.
You blew me a kiss and your ghost began to fly.
In a daze, I watched your spirit sail beyond.
As you sailed along the winds of Avalon.

    I wrote this song last winter, and I’m currently in the studio and will be recording this song.
    But i thought it was appropriate at this time to officially dedicate it to Jesi.
    Mighty-Joe and Jesi have become friends of late. I speak with Joe every single day, and over the past months, I would talk to Jesi every morning.
    She will be sorely missed. I feel that all I can offer is my music.
    When we record it – i will make the song available to everyone @Ficly for free..
    Song is about a man who found his soul-mate in London. They agreed they be married in London because it reminded them of King Arthur and Avalon.
    5 years later after her passing he returns to where they’d met and sees her ghost who gives him a message…. that he must live his life to the fullest even if it meant living without her.
    A sad reality for those of us who’ve lost those we love.
    Peace Eddie-Joe. My thoughts and my music are with you.

    Well.. Truth be told. Life still goes on .. one day atta time. But now it’s up to you to keep the memory alive – and tell us all what made you smile about her..
    Believe it or not – as hard as it is to talk about now … later on, those memories will comfort you.

    Believe it or not – as hard as it is to talk about now … later on, those memories will comfort you.And yes, you will talk to her every night before you sleep… That’s ok too!

    That’s right too…. A Girl in A Dress is also suffering this loss…
    Finished part of the arrangment for the song last night. Sent it to the guys in the band to learn.
    One of the guys is creating a Cubase arrangment on that in the studio and we’ll begin recording next week.

    I love the lyrics so am really wanting to hear the music. It is such a lovely gesture and I know Eddi and Eden will be over the moon when its released.
