    Here's what CP said:
    "David, I have been listening to your music for well over 20 years. The honesty of your lyrics has always connected with me… from Light As A Rail to Help Yourself (#10). Even now when I listen to Silver Pen I think “those are my words, not yours” Good job Dave. The new website rocks too!"

A power wood trio with just acoustic guitar (David), upright bass (Chris) and drums (KO) put this threadbare story of loss and departure out there.


River of Dreams - David Elias

I sleep by the fire, your song’s in my dreams. I run off to find you,
you’re nowhere it seems. The blue clouds float higher, metallic skies gleam. Your shadow’s the answer, this river of dreams.

A fortnight’s a long time to wait by the door. Your footsteps
don’t echo, they been here before. I pull my coat tighter,
look out one time more. Your shadow’s the answer, it lies
on the floor.

I’ll cast one more time, to the river of dreams, with a net made
of willow and sycamore leaves. I won’t look behind me as tears
turn to streams. Echo those answers in rivers of dreams.
