I filmed this acoustic version of ‘For my Sins’ in some magical faerie tale woods in Kent this Aug 2014. The song is dedicated to my bestie Velda Lauder who passed over a year ago and will be included on the ‘All The She Devils’. I had a dream while in Ham Green Cottage that there was a garden and in it were decapitated crow heads. There were also mother crows birthing their babies in silver weblike triangles. I walked carefully over the green trying to avoid stepping on the deceased ones and asked one of the live crows if they could fly somewhere more safer but he said they needed to stay for the time being. I looked up and saw Velda with long blue curly hair teleporting back and forth. She then began balancing on low earthbound stars to try and hug me but we both couldn’t reach other.
I looked in my hands and in a silvery web nest was a baby crow waiting for me to mother it…

For My Sins
Don’t think I’ve ever prayed to a rosary with honest intent
But when I think of the friend you were to me, I can’t help feel negligent
Now you’re with the crows, those damn greedy birds and I am with the dirt
Left sucking my thumb like a 5 year old the skin on my knees al broke
So I’m writing this song and hope it gets to you for my sins, for my sins
The feather of truth has beaten me black and blue for my sins, my sins, my sins, my sins, my sins
What a cruel mistress fate is to never let you say goodbye to the ones you loved
How could you know that you would go to lie and never wake your pretty head head up
Now you won’t come away from those greedy crows
Are they so beautiful you can’t play?
And though I try to go back to the times I know, I won’t wake up to yesterday
I’ll see you in the stars
I’ll see you in the flowers
I’ll see you in every child
I’ll see you in their smiles
I’ll see you in the owls
I’ll see you in their wise eyes
I’ll see you in the light
I’ll see you in the night skies
For my sins, my sins, my sins
Hope you enjoy my new video ‘Touched’…I’m touched by the flesh that seals my bones and keeps my insides open….
Filmed in Brighton 2014
