Music for the Soul

Sit back and listen to the music
let it flood over you stirring your soul
as you listen to the oh so haunting notes
close your eyes and drift away on wings

Each note so sharp and crystal clear
what need for words as you hear
angel's wings beating up high
sails flapping aimlessly

As circling  the dying ship
The albatross sweeps the sky
Hear the whoosh as he passes
the sounds of dead souls  cry out

Ah Mr Fleetwood you inspire me
as I hear the hauntingly lovely notes
telling the story without words
just letting the notes speak for you

    Have you ever heard the Buckingham Nicks album. It's awsome. So is Mick's band album shortly after Mac days. The Zoo or something like that. I had it, but the mover stole my album collection. :( Peace. :)

    hi Gerald albatross has always been my favorite piece of music and to think Mick didn't think it good enough to release lucky the record company overrode him. glad you enjoyed Shadow x smiles
