Story

Still Screaming Her Name: 

 

A Rock guitar anthem about the pain and isolation of a relationship gone awry.   "Speak to me child, you are so far away, won't you come with me today? You're fading so fast I can scarcely believe you once held my hand really warm".  But then things changed.  "But it can't last the time you are distant and cruel I cannot believe you are the same, but you can't stand the time you sit all alone , your heart's still Screaming Her Name".  Promises broken and dead on the floor...darkness hangs thick like the night all around, something is wrong with your game.  The guitar screams out in pain and anguish un-leashing its fury.

Posters and pictures and roads all go by , a blur of the rush in my head, cities and states and roads all go by, I scream things I never said.  Fighting my fears back with Navajo blade, how did I let you down oh... until I saw you weren't the angel you seemed and I'd find that girl just for me."

An intense electric guitar solo expresses the wordless agony of betrayal.

Lyrics

Track 11:  Still Screaming the Name

 

Speak to me child you are so far away,

and won’t you come with me today?

You’re fading so fast I can scarcely believe

you once held my hand real and warm.

But it can’t last the time, you are distant and cruel,

I cannot believe you are the same.

But you can’t stand the time you sit all alone,

your heart still screaming her name, oh babe!

 

You come to me now with your head in the clouds;

you want to be on your way.

Your voice is a shakin,’ though mine is still strong,

that is the end of my day.

 

But it can’t last the time,

you are distant and cruel,

I cannot believe you are the same.

But you can’t stand the time you sit all alone,

your heart still screaming the name, oh babe!

 

 

Promises broken and dead on the floor,

is that the reason you came?

Darkness hangs thick like the night all around,

something is wrong with your game.

 

But it can’t last the time,

you are distant and cruel,

I cannot believe you are the same.

But you can’t stand the time you sit all alone,

your heart still screaming her name, oh babe!

 

Posters and pictures and names all fly by,

a blur of the rush in my head.

Cities and states and roads all go by,

I scream things I never said.

 

Fighting my fears back with Navaho blade,

how did I let you down oh?

until I saw you weren’t the angel you seemed,

and I’d find the girl just for me.
