Live performance of “Pirates” and “When Your Heart Follows A Lie” @ The Rotunda, Philadelphia, PA

Hey folks, a little musical reprise from the Survivor Knights event at the Rotunda in Philadelphia, PA  – Live performance of “Pirates” and “When Your Heart Follows A Lie” –

Some tunes of mine addressing the traumas [“Pirates”] of life & the lies and the beliefs I [perhaps you have as well] have followed and then finding some truth…and love.  These are some of the reasons these songs came to pass.

PIRATES” © Michael Skinner Music

Walking down to the dock of the bay

Just take care in selecting you ship, moored at the quay

A sturdy ship from those at hand will help your passage

Deliver you to a new land

Before you set sail, remember why you chose to leave this place

Changing your mind in a storm tossed sea

Keeps you, floundering upon that misery sea

– Chorus –

Taking shots from a cannonade

High seas pirates chasing your sails

Throw your caution to the wind

Position your ship so the sun shines in their face

And though your crew has abandoned the sails

I can still feel the wind and the waves, at your hand

And though your crew has abandoned the sails

I can still feel the wind and the waves at your hand, at your hand

– Middle break –

– Chorus –

Taking shots from a cannonade

High seas pirates chasing your sails

Throw your caution to the wind

Position your ship so the sun shines in their face

And though your crew has abandoned the sails

I can still feel the wind and the waves at your hand

And though your crew has abandoned the sails

I can still feel the wind and the waves at your hand, at your hand

Before you set sail remember why you chose to leave this place

WHEN YOUR HEART FOLLOWS A LIE”© Michael Skinner Music

See your life unfold, wasting away

All those things you thought, they’ve been betrayed

I seemed so sure, of what I felt

Little did I know, soon that ice would melt

I have seen the fire and I’ve felt the rain

Love that felt so good, that too betrayed

All the mysteries of life, I’ve wanted to taste

My pursuit of truth and life, soon laid to waste

Chorus

And yet what I find, is not what I thought

Have I been so blind, in what I lived for

Now I know I was blind

Now I know I was blind

You feel so all alone, in this space

Try so hard to hang on, what’s left of your faith

Your hand reaches out, they slap it away

Once more you feel that knife, you’ve been betrayed

Chorus

And yet what I find, is not what I thought

Have I been so blind, in what I lived for

When your heart follows a lie

When your heart follows a lie

When you follow people of the lie

When your heart follows a lie

– Middle break

Chorus

And yet what I find, is not what I thought

Have I been so blind, in what I lived for

And now I know, I was blind

Oh now I know, I was blind

When your heart follows a lie

When your heart follows a lie

Now I follow truth, love and light

No more following a lie

We shall follow truth, love and light

We shall follow truth, love and light
