about

Here and Gone (written 01/2005, recorded 02/2005) A reminder to myself not to spend so much time missing the past that I miss the present. (guitars: 2002 Breedlove C25, 2001 Regal Duolian, Cremona upright bass)

lyrics

Here and gone, it’s here and gone
Hang on for the ride, don’t you look back for too long
Driftin’ thru the past, you know time keeps walkin’ on,
til close enough to touch is here and gone.

Sometimes I think I’ll find, that you’re still waiting,
or that the years have gone by and nothing’s changed.
Put the top down in the sun and we’ll go riding.
Never let this day fade away.

There’s a thousand yesterdays that I go back to.
The old times are so sweet in memory.
History ain’t nothin’ but just a shadow,
of everything that’s standing here today.

It’s here and gone, it’s here and gone
You hang on for the ride, don’t you look back for too long
Driftin’ thru the past, you know time keeps walkin’ on,
til close enough to touch is here and gone.

Intro Melody

Bridge:
Every now and then, I go driftin’ back
but you smile at me and say, ”Honey, where are you at?”

Here and gone, it’s here and gone
Right here and now, ain’t gonna wait around too long.
While it’s close enough to touch, you better hold it tight in your arms,
‘cause sometimes the sun comes up,
and what was close enough to touch,
sometimes the sun comes up…

about

Brett Allen Gregory Livermore, California

I've always been compelled to write.

Early on it was journaling and poetry, but then that merged with my guitar addiction to become songwriting.

The process was always a bit manic, pressured, as if a large gorilla had stepped into my room, grabbed me by the lapels and said, "I will not let you sleep until you write this idea down." And so for years the gorilla and I danced madly thru the night.
