History


The first single

History was clearly a standout song from when Simon first wrote it. Various arrangements in different bands have seen a wide variety of bass lines, percussion and even the way the guitar riff is played. This recording incorporates the best of all of them.

This version of History was released as a single in early 2017 after Simon completed shooting and editing the video (below). It has recieve airplay on numerous radio station particularly in Australia and New Zealand where Simon ran a small promotional campaign and was put on the high rotation list on several stations.

Favourable comments have been recieved from many people including a number of industry professionals who wanted to know when they could see Simon play live - one of the reasons Simon decided to put the new band together.

Lyrics


History


You know me, you think you own me,
But there’s still time to console me.
You may fight it, while I write it,
And you might find, I’ll change my mind.


Still today, you want to play,
With deadly toys awhile in style so you say.
And if we keep, the ways of past,
A wave of History will cover us at last.


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.


Hey Baby, try maybe,
And if it works, will you still hold me?
Can you see her? I used to love her,
But after time, she changed my mind,


So watch it now, come see how,
The world of girls and boys performs and takes its bow.
And if we open the ways of past
A wave of History will cover us at last.


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.


We run for you, we’ll see it through
The gates of depth that our time drew.
And if you steal, hearts of another,
The gates will open up in time for another.


And you cannot say, which yesterday,
I saw the open door and now the path will stay.
And if we seek the ways of past,
A wave of History will cover us at last…


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.
