Crossing Abbey Road     

(v1)
A woman I once loved
Walks towards me slowly
Wraps a maxi-coat around her
In a gesture almost holy
She looks quite normal
An impression that won't last
She's caught in amber
A jewel from the past

Pre-chorus
Those were the days my friend
For her they'll never end/never end

Chorus
Her mind's a Bermuda Triangle
Filled with psychedelic waste
It's all unchartable space
And the only thought she holds
Is to count aloud the zebra stripes
While crossing Abbey Road/crossing Abbey Road

(v2)
We strolled once through Hyde Park
Giggling in the rain
Ate a 99 Flake
From the ice-cream van
Watched a three-dimension rainbow
As it glorified the skies
And when the sun returned
I saw it dancing in her eyes

Pre-chorus
Those were the days my friend
For her they'll never end/never end

Chorus
Her mind's a Bermuda Triangle
Filled with psychedelic waste
It's all unchartable space
And the only thought she holds
Is to count aloud the zebra stripes
While crossing Abbey Road/crossing Abbey Road

Short instrumental break

Lift
Her elevator stops at the 13th floor
At a room that's never locked
The dead are always grateful
When she comes to sit and talk

Longer instrumental break

(v3)
Now she lives by herself
But is never alone
Voices laughing in her head
Though no one ever phones
She fell from Lucy's diamond sky
But can still describe the ways
She hears the colours in her mind
Sees notes when music plays

Pre-chorus
Once the woman held me fast
Now she walks blindly past

Chorus
Her mind's a Bermuda Triangle
Filled with psychedelic waste
It's all unchartable space
And the only thought she holds
Is to count aloud the zebra stripes
While crossing Abbey Road/crossing Abbey Road

Ray, excellent job. Your unique musical vision matches the theme and mood of the lyric so well. Thanks, Neal, John, Jay, and Steve, for your fine performances.
Wonderful work all round, gentlemen.  Smiley

I'd like to thank Andy too. He in fact approached me with the overall idea and asked me to write the lyric. He was a gracious mentor.  Wink

First listen! Very interesting, I think I just got an acid flashback to the 60's! Not that I was old enough to have a flashback to the 60's!  Grin I got a kick out of the 13'th floor vocal area. Excellent performance, guys, and Donna you always write some cool lyics!

Hey Everyone,

A great listen.

Super write, performance and production.The Beatles 67-68 era sound has been captured perfectly.

I too enjoyed the 13th floor vox squiggle and the "seagull" like loops from Tomorrow Never Knows that Ray slipped in.

Thank you Donna for the kind words but as Steve said the original vision was all yours and Rays. Well done!



Cheers
Andy

Paul and Jay, thank you.  Smiley Everyone did a marvellous job.

Gentlemen, here are a few kudos from off-site.  Wink

Donna

Very cool stuff here! Kudos to all!  RJC

Nice flowing story I enjoyed the Beatles-like music and presentation. James

Very Beatle (ish)! Sounds great! Really nice write! Way enjoyed it! Ben

What a production. Sure does bring back memories of the Beatles. Kudos to the crew who put your lyrics to music. Lot of work there!
Enjoyed the listen! Robin

A million flashbacks!!!!
Wow Donna, and the music soars and the vocal is spectacular!!!!!!
whooooohooooooo!!!!  Richard

Dig the 'big' intro vibe. there's a tension throughout but in a major chord sense (hope that makes sense). Also way dig the movements. Gives me a feeling of travel'n the musical universe. Way way enjoyed and thanks for sharing. Rard

This is an Awesome trip!! What a great job, both in the nice writing and the well done demo. It really takes you there. Really nice!!! Sheila

LOVE THIS! I feel as though Alice in Wonderland took me to visit the Beatles. It was a great journey as I found the singing so evocative and your lyrics alive with possibilities. You are an amazing story teller. Thanks for the pure pleasure you give. Annie

Playing catch up, glad I caught up with this one! Lots of great pictures in this one, really enjoyed it! Nanci
