introducing new song, Mahogany Hawk...

It's been awhile since i have journaled, and i can only say it's because i have spent the majority of my time on the business side of my music career - namely booking, promoting and performing live shows. it seems to take all my time. happily, i get to express the art - the creative side of my profession - during my live performances. but i have let the time for writing my new ideas, new songs, slip on by.

but - here is Mahogany Hawk, my first new single in FOUR YEARS. 

want to honor nature with me? i am pleased to share in a song my feeling that nature and creatures - in particular this beautiful hawk - are clean, simpler, and more pure and natural than being human.

have a listen to Mahogany Hawk here on my website.

if you like what you hear, then to download/buy this song, please click here on Mahogany Hawk. Below are the lyrics.

i look forward to hearing from you! if you'd like to leave a comment, please do so, or sign my Guestbook/Gästebuch

thank you, Peace,

MAHOGANY HAWK - Words and Music by Beth Wimmer c2015

Beth Wimmer - acoustic guitar and vocals / David Raven - doumbek

recorded and mixed by David Raven at Honky Abbey studio in Los Angeles, California

 

Mahogany Hawk in the treetop staring me down

your eyes reflect light from the skyline   wings downy brown

i see you circling high over my town

you keep your calm in the sky, scanning the ground

 

ooh you're so good at what you do

humanity's so complicated  i wish i were you

 

Mahogany Hawk in the vineyard looking so fine

i see your life as a clean one, nothing like mine

you've only a few simple needs and the patience of saints

actions based purely on spirit, not greed or hate

 

ooh your moment is now, each second is new

society's hurried and wasteful  i wish i were you

 

oooooh    oooooh   oooooh

 

Mahogany Hawk at the highway as i'm passin' by

my heart is glad to imagine you're here at my side

consumed by calls coffee contracts and video cams

at times i lose faith in the nature of who i am

 

ooh but you've known your place from the moment you flew

humanity's so complicated   i wish i were you

 

most beautiful creature sharp eyes of star gold if i could hold you i'd kiss your wings

my animal teacher, my avian saint, and prayer of patience and natural things

most beautiful creature sharp eyes of star gold if i could hold you i'd kiss your wings

my animal teacher, my avian saint, my prayer of patience and natural things

 

ooh you're so good at what you do

humanity's so complicated  i wish i were you
