letting go with love is so important.

about

Parker Ainsworth Los Angeles, California

“Parker Ainsworth has the voice of a man whose lived many lives in one lifetime. He’s a mystic wandering bard…you can hear the Texan smoke in his voice and his finger picking should be studied. He’s a painter with words and his palette is plentiful. I was a fan in an instant.” ~ NohoArtsDistrict ... more

Track Name: Awake
Awake
music and lyrics by parker ainsworth

the alarm clock sounds the horn
echoing the day is born
as you open up your windows
circles beautifully adorned
light pours in washing the room
many shadows become few
are we waking from a dream
or are these dreams we're sleeping through?

once i felt your warm breath upon my cheek
wide awake then i fell right back asleep
somewhere in my dreams i see the outline of your face
as you whisper in my ear awake

rising from the ruffled sheets
that were once as white as geese
flying south above reflections
cast upon a tranquil sea
waves of feathers curl and lift
in a gust of ocean mist
on the beach below a man deciphers all the things he's missed

once i felt your warm breath upon my cheek
wide awake then i fell right back asleep
somewhere in my dreams i see the outline of your face
as you whisper in my ear awake

i opened up my eyes for a moment in a dream and glimpsed eternity

once i felt your warm breath upon my cheek
wide awake then i fell right back asleep
somewhere in my dreams i see the outline of your face
as you whisper in my ear awake...
Track Name: Hope you understand
Hope you understand
music and lyrics by parker ainsworth

heidi can we stay?
for another day
laying in the wake of the dappled shade
the taxi ride is nice
and such a tiny price
to spend some time with you

the planes above await
where the road divides
maybe if we're lucky there delayed tonight
for now we'll watch the world
as it speeds away
resting face to face
our hearts on display

oh... oh... oh. oh. oh.
it just won't feel this way again
you know i got to
go... go... go. go. go.
i hope you understand

are bags now rest behind
where there out of mind
leaving precious room in which to see
the colors of your eyes
as they shift between
sunlight in a dream
to an amber breeze

oh... oh... oh. oh. oh.
it just won't feel this way again
you know i got to
go... go... go. go. go.
i hope you understand

there's little left to say
the embrace remains
fingers speaking soft and fluently
i can't ignore the news they communicate
a part of you is about to leave with me

oh... oh... oh. oh. oh.
it just won't feel this way again
you know we got to
go... go... go. go. go.
i hope you understand

heidi can we stay?
for another day
laying in the wake of the dappled shade
the taxi ride is nice
and such a tiny price
to spend some time with you
Track Name: Rain......
Rain......
music and lyrics by parker ainsworth

all i can say is that life is a song that i'll
sing even if it belongs to the silence
i heard footsteps moving away in the darkness
scared till acceptance of death gave me solace
i've seen yellow flowers float gently on water
so blue in reflections that dance in the moonlight
here in an instant i live between dreams
so real that reality's fake and pretentious

rain keeps on fallin and fallin and fallin...

high then a low again see me i'm flyin
then falling through clouds feeling lost feeling missing
i look in your eyes and i see there's a question
deep in the center exists true affection
lost is the truth in a world of deception
yet kind individuals bring back the reason
i live for the music i'm facing a sunrise
that bathes skin en route to epiphanies realized

rain keeps on fallin and fallin and fallin...

all that i can say
is that i'm tired of all this rain and thundering
but what is a soul to do
except keep on moving towards the skies of blue
all that i can say
is that i'm tired of all this pain and suffering
but what is a soul to do
except keep on moving towards the skies of blue

rain keeps on fallin and fallin and fallin...
Track Name: We just forgot
We just forgot
music and lyrics by parker ainsworth

a child is born with magic deep in their heart
knowing that they here to shape a life with all that they are
a drop of brilliance from a radiant sun
choosing to dive into night to experience dark

all we are
a flock of angels born to dance in the stars
clipping our wings so we can know what we're not
it's ok my love we just forgot

i heard a painter cursing all of the world
exclaiming it all looks wrong there's nothing real anymore
a fortune cookie fell from up in the sky
when it cracked open at his feet it read
"your thoughts make you right"

all we are
a flock of angels born to dance in the stars
clipping our wings so we can know what we're not
it's ok my love we just forgot

who we are
with our halos covered
forgetting what we're here for
born in sacred service

sweeping my arms up i surrender my plans
leaving impressions of my essence in the snow and the sand
we got our feathers ringing jingling bells
laughing and flying toward the sun with these wings that don't melt

all we are
a flock of angels born to dance in the stars
we clip our wings so we can know what we're not
it's ok my love we just forgot...
Track Name: Higher up
Higher up
music and lyrics by parker ainsworth

i'm sitting way up high 
on this mountain taking in the view
you're out there wearing a smile 
on your mountain too 
now the wind is blowing stronger
and we know we have a bit more to climb
but the view right now is opening... opening up
opening our eyes

(we know)
there are oh so many more 
many steps until the top
and so we both surrender 
to a picture from higher up

our vision's growing wider
out over the trees of the world we knew
and the trails we followed for miles
only echoes in the altitude 
and as the veils that hid are essence
are blown away like specks of fire and gold
we're getting closer going higher becoming smaller
so much smaller
like the stars along the road

(we know)
there are oh so many more 
many steps until the top
and so we both surrender 
to a picture from higher up...
