Wait for the Sun to Be Born – Ben Newman

Dark and cold, dark and cold
The Sun he has perished as ever of old,
And here in the darkness that never knows morn,
We wait for the sun to be born.

“Wait for the Sun to Be Born,” by Ben Newman, downloaded from his website, with lyrics and chords available here.

 

Starseer – Ben Newman

Out in the dark at the edge of the system,
Drifting along where the comets spin cold,
One frozen planetoid, one lonely victim;
Try to remember the lies you were told…
“If you wish on a star you shall never grow old…”

A cryptic space song on the level of “Ship of Stone,” “Starseer,” by Ben Newman, downloaded from his website, with lyrics and chords available here.

A Long Way From Home – Ben Newman

You’re a long way from home, such a long road you’ve traveled,
And while you were away, many years went by…
So feel free to roam, for the world cannot hold you.
Maybe you’ll be the one who will teach us to fly…

“A Long Way From Home,” an oddly cheerful song about temporal distortion by Ben Newman, downloaded from his website, with lyrics and chords available here.

 

Go Forth By Night – Ben Newman

Step out your door
When darkness falls
Don’t ask what for
Don’t ask who calls

“Go Forth By Night” by Ben Newman, downloaded from his website, with lyrics and chords available here.  A little bit eerie, in the most inspiring way possible.

In This Cup – Ben Newman

Every autumn, every spring
Her touch changes everything
She knows the way down, and the way back up
Come taste Her secret in this cup

“In This Cup,” a neopagan song by Ben Newman, downloaded from his website, with lyrics and chords available here

This song is just…charming.  I don’t have another word for it.  I love Ben’s style, always unassuming but poignant.

Dragon for Sale – Ben Newman

This came up on the Pegasus Awards brainstorming poll for “Best Time-Related Song,” and I’d say it deserves a shot.  Ben Newman is wry and clever as always.

Glass Half Full of the Sea – Ben Newman

This was suggested by animatedamerican when I mentioned selkie songs tend to be tragic.  This one is not tragic.  It is adorable.
