about

Sugar Mountain
Many of the songs on this album are “cathartic” type songs, heavy and intense. I needed to write a “comfort” song. There is comfort food, and this song falls into that category. Here is a piece that tells of a place and time where every- thing is perfect, as it should be, filled with peace, equality and experiencing love fully.

lyrics

SUGAR MOUNTAIN

To that place, to that time, where clocks do not tick
and there will be no sign of rush or of worry,
of sorrow or fret we will be in no hurry to run from deathbeds.

A pillow of peace, no more tears in our eyes,
as we lay down our heads and breathe a deep sigh.
Relief, oh relief from all of the past,
and here I hold onto all that did last.
Looking deep into the eyes that quench my parched soul.
At last, this is the moment, I am completely whole!
I’ll meet you there, upon that bright shore,
hand in hand we will walk as the heavens adore.
This reunion, this communion, this festival, this feast
to toast to the best for here there is no least
all are valued, oh all are loved all are celebrated in glory above

AND THAT’S NOT TO MENTION PLAIN OLD ROCK AND ROLL WHICH BLACK SWIFT KEEPS TUCKED AWAY IN THEIR TRAVELING BAGS, TO BE USED AS NEEDED. ... more
