WATCHING MY SHADOW LEAVE

Watching My Shadow Leave, by Harry Rogers – Vocals and lyrics, and Ashley Cadell – music and mix

I wrote this poem in 2015. Sent a recording of me reading it to my old friend, Ashley Cadell who lives in Melbourne, Australia. He sent me back this amazing finished mix. I post it now in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

WATCHING MY SHADOW LEAVE

I know when things are bad
When I break down and cry
Even when they’re not sad
I cry and cry and cry
The look in people’s eyes
My heart bleeds on my sleeve
Such darkness in the skies
I watch my shadow leave
What can we all do
This is nothing new
What can we all do
This is nothing new 
I want to love them all
Be right there for them
In Al Yarmouk they fall
Also in Bethlehem
I hear them when they call
So loud they need their friends
The world still does fuck all
Whilst this war never ends!
What can we all do
This is nothing new
What can we all do
This is nothing new 
The look in people’s eyes
My heart bleeds on my sleeve
Such darkness in the skies
I watch my shadow leave.

Harry Rogers – In the old study, Aberbanc – 06/04/2015
