Two Track Mind

by David Elias (solo acoustic)

Mend My Mind - by David Elias Mend my mind on a summer day Arguello said what he had to say No one wants it any other way So mend my mind on a summer day Mend my heart on the open shore Where winds will blow then they blow some more Colors fade away from rich to poor Mend my heart on the open shore Clear my head on an autumn day The sun is strong and the winds are grey The party’s over ain’t no one would stay So clear my head on the autumn day There’s nothing wrong with a rainy day The skies may cry for yesterday Winds will sing to find another way There’s nothing wrong with that rainy day ____________________________________
And I Said - by David Elias, 9/11/2001 It's the end of summer see the red lights running Cross the open interstate And the wind feels good through the summer wood The evening's getting late I'm with my little boy he's wearing corduroy And he's looking up at me He says why they kill those people there In New York City And I Said... So we lit three candles sitting on the wall While the stars were coming on And we said our prayers in the early fall For those never really gone One for the bodies of the innocent Good God let them rest in peace And one for the minds in the universe That learn from tragedy One for the spirit and the souls at large May we find true unity In a little boy wearing corduroy He's looking up at me And I say...
Heaven's Destiny - by David Elias The moon was golden just like the sun Clouds were furrowed just like your brow These days of old have just begun To catch up back where we are now And those dreams of gold don’t grow on trees They seek the bottom of the sea When you are old and look like me You’ll follow heaven’s destiny Dreams of old have just begun Shining through the dust and sun When you are old and you look like me Remember heaven’s destiny That ring of fire may burn some wings Sure as the crow and sparrow sings Well they’ll float on down to easy street And call it heaven’s destiny
The Riddle Song - by David Elias I took a little piece of thread from the pillow on my bed I put it underneath my arm to keep it safe and keep it warm It found its way into my heart Where it was destined from the start That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes I picked a penny from the floor Walking through the hardware store I put it into my old shoe, it seemed to be the thing to do It found its way into my soul filling up an empty hole That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes A feather landed on my knee When I was leaning ‘gainst a tree It wasn’t any kind of test Just looking for a place to rest It found its way under my skin Grew to spread its wings within That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes _____________________________________


This was the first MQA CD released anywhere worldwide in January 2017

No one has heard these solo acoustic tracks before this new release in 2017. They are recorded with just 2 microphones (2 tracks!) on voice and guitar. There is nothing edited. Recorded and mixed digitally as hi-res, then mastered for CD release (16/44.1).

Plays with Studio Authenticated MQA from CD or ripped (ALAC, FLAC, WAV, AIF). I don't know where else MQA CD's are being sold, but here's one online through good old CD Baby.... Aloha!


released December 21, 2016
