Mark Anderson Got to know of Taylor purely by accident! I was u-tubing Mel Brown and found 'Answer your questions !
Been a fan ever since!

This cd is brilliant ! Best track is Come Now' ! But that may change as it continues to grow on me!

about

2016 Release of new Taylor Mesple Music! Arguably his finest album yet, this album is the culmination of 25+ years as a recording artist. Deeper lyrics, more refined mixes and more mojo as a storyteller. Only available BACKSTAGE.

“Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.” - Rebecca Solnit (from "A field guide to getting lost")

Track Name: A Prisoner I've Become (Salvation Blues)
Make the water into red wine
And pour it out to fill the sea
Turn the pebbles into diamonds
This is all you think of me

So a prisoner I’ve become
Of your laws that weigh a ton
Your book I can’t escape
As I try to stop the blame from falling down on everyone

Ask my Father for forgiveness
They know not what they do to me
They follow principles and shadows
They’re always deaf in hearing me

So a prisoner I’ve become
Of your laws that weigh a ton
Your books I can’t escape
As I try to stop the blame from pouring down from everyone

It’s quiet here in the silence
The cold night enveloping my breath
I know they’ll think it was my Father
Who sent me to a painful death

They’ll make up legends and instructions
Their books are idols on the throne
I’ll tell them how it’s truly finished
How death and hell I’ve overcome

But it’s hard to be a savior
And find what now is lost
And it’s hard to lead the people
When you’re nailed to the cross
Track Name: My Resolution
No matter the season
I'll paint with cerulean
Halfway between blue and green
The road less traveled
Where magic does battle
I will not just play 5 to lead

In a realm that's major not minor
I will make my way to find her
She's my muse and my song
This is my resolution

No matter the instrument
Guitar or piano
I'll find a way to speak what's hidden
The minor 11
Not just minor 7
I'll even bring you chords unbidden

In a realm that's major not minor
I will make my way to find her
She's my muse and song
She's my resolution

I will find her
She's my muse and my song
I'm gonna find her
She's my muse and my song
This is my resolution
Track Name: Come Now (Surrender Your Love)
I will know you with my hands
As you reach the dreamed of lands
You will know and understand

I will hold you steady and firm
As you glimpse through hidden stained glass walls
You will learn with me love's slow burn

Gentle yet strong
Patience and wild hunger
Come now surrender your love

You will know me as you drift from sleep
I will be consuming and deep
You will find your hidden treasure keys

I will play your heart sweet melodies
Songs of earthquake ecstasy
You will ache as you dream of me

Gentle yet strong
Patience and wild hunger
Come now surrender your love
Track Name: Keeper of Dreams
Life is a paradox
And it's troubling my fragile mind
It feels like the sun is getting farther and farther away
Life has me paranoid
Anxious and paralyzed
It feels like my heart is beating softer and softer each day

Be gone, J. Evans Comfort Zone
I'll find a way to solve and untangle
The lies and these illusions
And walk toward the source of Lux Aeterna

I wanna fly so free
Over the seen horizon
I wanna dance with you
The Keeper of Dreams
You hold the key

Once I was just a child
My domain was the magic realms
I traveled beyond the visible wardrobe doors
I'm like an exiled king
Often dead in this apathy
But never again will I fly this white flag and be a pawn

Be gone, J. Evans Comfort Zone
I'll find a way to solve and untangle
The lies and these illusions
And walk toward the source of Lux Aeterna

I wanna fly so free
Over the seen horizon
I wanna dance with you
The Keeper of Dreams
You hold the key
Track Name: In An Iron Cage (feat. Nelson Rangell)
My face against this wall
Waiting for the call
To step beyond the door
And to return to our home where we stay
To wipe the tears from your eyes

In an iron cage
Many miracles away
My faith won't disappear
We were made to stay
We're not the kind that break

My thoughts again return
To prisons made of my words
I never got to explain
Without any context they sang their parade
And then drove me to the grave

In an iron cage
Many miracles away
My faith won't disappear
We were made to stay
We're not the kind that can (ever) break

So now it's been a year
This lonely life in here
I dream of the smiles
Of my wife and children in morning sunlight
'Cause they lied - I'm alive!
Track Name: Hallelujah
Your kingdom grows
As strongholds crumble
Your mercy for me (flows)
Hallelujah

Our old men dream
Our young men see visions
You speak through me
Hallelujah

We're free indeed
You ran to redeem us
Eternal light in me
Hallelujah
