about

I was a huge Police fan back in the day...still am I have to say and Steve and I do a cover of Tea in the Sahara from Synchronicity. This song was one of my favourites from Sting's Dream of the Blue Turtles album recorded after the unofficial breakup of the Police and Eddy Grant played congas on the original. I love the jazzy stuff on this record, this track probably being my favourite. I've seen lots of great live cover versions, I seem to recall my friend Kevin Ford doing a fantastic live arrangement of it. This one features the lovely Steve Lawson on bass. It's my new favourite duo tune to do! Enjoy!

lyrics

There were rooms of forgiveness
In the house that we shared
But the space has been emptied
Of whatever was there
There were cupboards of patience
There were shelf loads of care
But whoever came calling
Found nobody there

After today, consider me gone

Roses have thorns, and shining waters mud
And cancer lurks deep in the sweetest bud
Clouds and eclipses stain the moon and the sun
And history reeks of the wrongs we have done

After today, consider me gone

I've spent too many years at war with myself
The doctor has told me it's no good for my health
To search for perfection is all very well
But to look for Heaven is to live here in Hell

After today, consider me gone
