lyrics

You came in close from far away
You sat in the broken midnight
Breathed in the silent darkness
Unfolding lighthouse eyes
Unblinking eyes that nod
Screaming photon rods
A magnetic playing wonder
Headlong in the thunder

I can stare through the touch of your eyes
I can hear the wolf
I can see the night
I can see the night
Burn and howl
Burn and howl
I can look with eyes anew
Reality’s a harsh fusion blues

An unblinking eye that nods
Screaming photon rods
A magnetic playing wonder
Headlong in the thunder

Stare right through your eyes
Smile right through your eyes
I can slide right in your eyes
Smiles of screams of butterflies

I’ll strike out on my own
Strike out on my own
Is it me that’s looking back
Is that a smile I left behind?
What’s the price of going on?
I’ll just keep staring
Find the soul of the night
In the shine of your eyes

Stare right through your eyes
Smile right through your eyes
I can slide right in your eyes
Smiles of screams of butterflies

And when the stars come down to slumber
I will calculate your elusive number
In the misty sequence of time
I will know you’re mine

I can see the night burn and shine

about

Pete Gioconda Brighton, UK

PETE GIOCONDA is a unique, edgy singer, a protest poet with penchant for historical reference. This mix of punk attitude and psychedelic-folk feel teases the audience to take sides ... like a Johnny Rotten (who hasn’t slept in four days) meets Times they are a-changin’-era Dylan and strolls into Cat Power’s bedroom for consolation. ... more
