As you all know, I’m not one to do covers and usually concentrate on writing my own music. This song by Serena Mathews @paintingangels just took me away to somewhere that I’ve not been for a long time, that place, as a musician which is quite foreign, is total admiration for another fellow creative soul. Now, there are many many great musicians here on Steemit that I love to listen to, but there’s just something magical about Serena’s songwriting that I’m addicted to. I really hope you like what I’ve done with your song ‘Wish Away’ Serena, and will no doubt be speaking to you very soon.
I don’t sleep well anymore now that you are gone
I place to pillows in a row imagining you’re home
Your aftershave still lingers low
like Heaven lost in my bed
I don’t drink and I don’t smoke and I don’t like to cry.
I guess that I’ll just wish away this pain.
This wicked dream is killing me,
I wish that you still loved me.
Here I lay before I sleep
whispering prayers into my sheets
If I should fly from here tomorrow
please don’t linger in my sorrows..
Darren Claxton is a Songwriter, Musician and Producer of his own music, from Derbyshire UK. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’ . But most of all, it’s his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.
