With the world on pause, perhaps music will save us, or not.

As the creativity never seems to stop I shall upload some songs recorded during these trying times.

Never Too Late

Inspired and driven by change, by trying again, by forever growing and searching for that dawn across the Milky Way.

Hope it makes you feel less gloomy.

Recorded at Between the Ocean and the sky with the participation of Joe van der Linden on Bass and Electric guitar.

Never too late

Music and lyrics by Ced

Recorded at “between the ocean and the sky”: Acoustic guitars, electric rythm, drum programming, vocals by Ced

Recorded at Joe’s home studio: Bass, electric guitar and slide: Joe van der Linden

It’s never too late

To reinvent your dreams

Even if time has played, the card you thought you had.

Learn to embrace,

Learn to forget the scars you wear

Even if fear still feeds the shadows in your heart

Second chance you need to separate

What’s real from fake ‘cause fake will bring you down

You’ve got to learn to teach to face each day

Like a new dawn splashed across the Milky Way

Remember the time

When you believed all that they said

But then you chose the road that took you far away

Second chance you need to separate

What’s real from fake ‘cause fake will bring you down

You’ve got to teach to learn to face each day

Like a new dawn splashed across the Milky Way

Don’t be afraid,

The past can’t touch you now

And we’ll protect this space from the storm and surge somehow

And if the boat, should suffer in the storm

Know that we surfed the wave

Of universal truth

Where no ones to lose

Where two and two can also add to nine

Into the Fire

I have been sporadically spending time in the studio during this restricted movement period. I think this song started off positive, but it might have gotten lost.

Into the fire

Sunrise

Lyrics music and all instruments by Ced

Time is a concept

To measure things that cannot be measured

Space is the distance

You keep between the courage you require to throw yourself once more

Into the fire

If love is the answer

Chorus:

When you feel you’ll come undone

And you feel your mind is Numb

Remember to believe in yourself like you believe in the sun

When you long for what you crave

All the love that you once gave

Remember to believe in yourself before you give it away

You’re given the key

To elevate emancipate your future

Hold on to the treasure

You found sleeping in the corner of your mind before you took the leap

Into the fire

If hate is the cancer

Chorus

A world filled with vision

Of dreams and screams

Of hope and thoughts of wisdom that live under the ashes

Of the everlasting fire

That must burn with your desire

Chorus

Info Junkie

Info junkie man, save yourself while you can

Don’t become Junk info man

Info junkie girl, save yourself from this world

Don’t become junk info girl

The world has gone crazy

There is no right from wrong

There is no truth from fake

And no time for this song

The media has no scruples

Plays you like a pawn

When everything falls apart,

You’ll be left on your own

Info junkie man, save yourself while you can

Don’t become Junk info man

Info junkie girl, save yourself from this world

Don’t become junk info girl

You live for the drama

Social media disease

Pharmaceuticals smile

With the pills that you need

We listen to leaders

With their own evil plan

Spreading fear in your soul

Through the palm of your hand

Info junkie man, save yourself while you can

Don’t become Junk info man

Info junkie girl, save yourself from this world

Don’t become junk info girl

Does it help if you worry about all that they said

And no one is accountable for the panic they spread

It’s 24 /7 breaking news alert

A reality that just becomes too absurd

And fear is the weapon on both sides of the blade

It’s about your consumption

How much money they made

Info junkie man, save yourself while you can

Don’t become Junk info man

Info junkie girl, save yourself from this world

Don’t become junk info girl
