I am so excited to go see Peter Mayer tonight. Well, technically I’m working the concert, but that still means I get to benefit by hearing him play live. His lyrics are so rich with imagery, peace, and a feeling of passionate comfort with his spirit.
When he was here in February, I got to talk to him. I asked him if his lyrics came easily to him. He looked at me as if I’d grown another head. He said it was the hardest part of what he does. He works and reworks the lyrics until they breathe on their own. He was not condescending as he spoke. I described how it feels when I get the poem spark, where the lyrics sing on their own. He spoke warmly with me. I was an instant fan.
I’m sharing two videos with you. One is where the lyrics are so perfect, it made sense to me. If it doesn’t for you, that’s okay, but I hope you’ll give it a listen.
My favorite song by him:

I’m thinking you’ll be in for a treat! I liked the first song, but I loved Everything Is Holy Now. If it’s on You Tube can I download it to hear again?
He is indeed on YouTube. There’s a playlist of his music. I think you, Linda Looney, may also like My Soul which is a lovely song. I love every one of them but Blue Boat Home is my favorite because I like the way it rocks back and forth with some rolling waves in it. Pretty.
