OUT NOW – Who knows the dangers we might meet?
Inspired by listening to the book To Rule the Waves by Arthur Herman, about the British Navy and Herrmann’s The Great Age of Discovery about great explorers I have written a track called Seize the Day. These chaps must’ve had balls of steel. Heading out into the unknown. Makes our over scrutinised lives seem rather small in comparison.
I have used this painting as the base for the artwork to go with the single. For more information about the painting click here.
Seize the Day
Throw the dice and say your prayers
The World is yours, if you dare
Who knows the dangers we might meet?
Crashing waves or the guns of the mighty Spanish Fleet
It’s the great adventure of our time
I’ve got the chance to know what is or isn’t mine
And this ripple could become a mighty wave
No-one knows if their souls are ever safe
So, they should seize the day
In a burning sun on a breathless sea
With thoughts of home and a waiting Virgin Queen
Francis Drake and the Golden Hind
Lived on hope of all the treasure he might find
Who knows the dangers we might meet
