Description
Hello Macjammers! I see I haven't posted a new tune here since last year around this time when I participated in Feb Album Writing Month (http://fawm.org) Truth is, I haven't written a tune since then. Just never have any time. But I decided to do FAWM again this year. It's nice since it forces you to write even when time is limited. So here it is... my first tune for FAWM 2009 and I'm already late! This is the first song I've done for a little concept I came up with last week. I'm hoping I can write a bunch of tunes for it. Briefly, it's about a time traveler who, as a side effect of time travel, looses some of his memory and must wait for it to return. Blah blah! We'll see where it goes...

Lyrics
It was a flash of light,
A blinding sight
from above the trees

The sky was giving birth
to the shaking earth
we dropped to our knees

And then before us rose
a man in funny clothes
His stare was bleak

And though it seemed absurd
we stood without a word
and waited to hear him speak

"I'm a future man
I've been sent to warn you all.
but my mind is blanked
and I'm unable to recall
I'm a future man
But I don't know who or when I am

I remember a light
when I took flight
through time and space

Now I'm standing here
In your current year
with my head erased

My thoughts aren't far behind
Just in another time
and they're on their way

let me hit the sack
and when my memory's back
I'll have a message to convey"

He's a future man
Like magic he appeared
Can all he says be true
Or is he someone to be feared?

"I'm a future man
And I don't know who or when I am"
