Spirit Like You (Lyrics)

Download MP3: Web Sheldon - Spirit Like You

They say you'll lose
Because you sinned
But sins are just
Strings 'round your mind
They can all be undone

There's many times
You sat and sighed
And couldn't see
How a step could be taken
If there's nowhere to go

There's many doubts
Need letting out
It's amazing how free you feel
Once you deal yourself
A good hand

You watch them trace
Lines on your face
But you miss it when
They're wishing for a
Spirit of life just like you

Mistakes will happen to you
You're only human so
Don't cut yourself up, don't get down
Regrets are only regrets
If you don't learn from them
You know you can turn it around

Theories From Von Krahl (Lyrics)

This is actually about the same guy as Good Friends is about and some of the lyrics were written back in 2001.

Download MP3: Web Sheldon - Theories from Von Krahl

Oh, so it's true
You've kissed somebody else now, haven't you!
And don't I feel a fool, pushed you away
Talked me down to your friends
What do they say?
But then again, I promised I wouldn't dig
But I'm having a hard time
Me and my stiff upper lip
Are going away for some time

So what if maybe Peeash is the one?
Cos you deserve now, no more hurt now
Bad times should be gone
His running around and kissing girls you could never understand
And that one night apart when he couldn't keep it in his pants

I enjoy being there for you
That I'm a someone that you can talk to
That we're still considered friends
After all we've been through, I'm glad I have you
But he's just a concept to me
He's only a story, it isn't real
If I saw him, how would I feel?
You and your new 'see how it goes' deal

Everybody makes mistakes, hoping this isn't yours
Cos you deserve now, no more blame now
You were not the cause
He always acted like he'd got something to hide
He always pushed you as far as he could
Till you stepped to one side

Are you learning from the past
Or letting it ruin your last chance?
Are you applying Theories from Von Krahl
Or simply learning how to fall?

Hope you appreciate
I left you to your man
Because I understand
And all I ever really wanted

Was your happiness
I had the things he lacked
But I couldn't give you that
That's why I left you

On the way home I collapsed
You'd taken all my strength
But added another complex
And add another to the

'It wasn't meant to be' list
But you were more to me
So that's my good deed
And I don't care about the karma

Song Collections

There's so much planned in December that I'm starting to think like it's the end of the year now because if I don't, December will sudddenly be gone and I won't have done all my usual end of year things like making compilations of my favourite songs of the year and Top 10 albums etc...

So I was thinking in relation to Web Sheldon, this has been one of the best years of my life for my own music... And thats kind of a weird thing to say because I haven't played ANY gigs (apart from playing for friends :-) ) and I've only written a few new songs but this year I have recorded about 10 songs... And making a record of those songs has really made me feel like I have something down in concrete and will set the scene for next year...

If you know me, you'll probably know that I hate to limit myself too much and I've found it very difficult trying to confine myself to write or record a certain type of song so they all fit on one EP and sound coherant... So instead I've split the different types of music I'm recording into different parts...

There's a collection called "Eight English Months" which are acoustic guitar based, mostly quite old songs that I am recording only now...

There's "5 Minutes" which is a collection of cover songs...

There's "No Soul I Know Could Live Without Love" which willl be a collection of Piano based songs...

Then there's a couple of songs I've recorded that are more upbeat but I haven't got a name for this yet... but this is my main and most exciting project...

So I'll just keep adding song to these as and when they are recorded and see how it goes...

I'm hopefully buying an iMac soon so it will be v nice to work with a something faster than a snail too... I do expect a lot from my poor lappy though and he does very well considering *hugs to lappy*
