Light (2)

The Smokstik song Light appears on the Smokstik album 2 that was released in 2010. Recorded in 2002 and featuring Kingvegas on Warr Guitar and vocals and Joe Meyer on drums this album features a new era in Kingvegas’ playing and songwriting. This album was recorded using Steinberg’s Cubase DAW and drum tracks were recorded at Sally T’s in St. Peters, Mo. (RIP)

Light is an upbeat, groovy, jazzy little number about believing in yourself despite what the rest of the world may believe.

Light (2)- music and lyrics by John Kingvegas Kiehne
An idea- unleashed
Is runnin’ around
No place to go yet
It don’t make a sound
The princes are scheming
The lady’s laid down
Across the green meadow
I leap and bound

My car isn’t running
I can’t find my shoes
Do I hate the devil
Do I love booze
How many midgets are in the Oz
When is mom’s birthday
Where am I going
What did I say

When I see you- do you see me
When I need you- do you need me

There’s a light- in my head
Shinin’- in and out
Maybe- you can see it
Maybe you can’t see it- see it at all…

I’m playing in the stars
I’m making love on Mars
Gods flying all around me
There is so much to see
Faith and hope run amok
Hate and fear make bad luck
Four times 6 don’t make sense
It’s just a dream anyway

When I see you- do you see me
When I need you- do you need me

There’s a light- in my head
Shinin’- in and out
Maybe- you can see it
Maybe you can’t see it- see it at all…
