I only discovered this guy in the past year.   What a voice. Passionate.  Lyrically this song recalls "for everything there is a season", "a time for everything under the sun".   There is even a time for waiting where you may feel "all locked down chained in the hole".   And that waiting may take years.   But when the waiting is done, "give it a whirl".   An anthemic sound similar to Peter Garrett of Midnight Oil and dark intesity of Nick Cave.    For those new to the talent of Sivert Høyem - he's had several solo albums.   Prior to being a solo artist he was the voice behind, award winning, Norwegian rock band Madrugada who were popular primarily in Europe.  This song originally from his 2011 album LONG SLOW DISTANCE. 

Lyrically might be the perfect theme song for exiting the pandemic era.  Maybe we're all a little wiser, a little more cautious, a little more appreciative of life, freedom and so many things we've taken for granted.     

This track reaches deep into me right now.   I hope you enjoy it.   
If I was to expire on a day like this
Then pay no heed at all
Returned again, my secret fire
From confusion trails
To death's own roll call

And you know that I don't know what to do
But I could wait a thousand years or more
Settled in to the point where I...
I don't know what the hell I'm waiting for

It's my time to be waiting
All locked down, chained in the hole
But when my waiting is done
I'm gonna give it a whirl
[x2]

Again, try to rewire
The connections of your tired machine
Well, you know you've been a liar
A good for nothing two-faced go-between

It's my time to be waiting
All locked down, chained in the hole
But when my waiting is done
I'm gonna give it a whirl
[x6]

sunday verses #14

3 MORE HAIKU 


Framing seasons three
Winter starts and ends the year
Annual bookends

***

A breath of warm air
She comes around the mountain
Chase Winter away

***

She pushes forth life
Her pungent verdant bower
Earth's labour's give birth
