about

Aaron Bowen San Diego, California

When you think about 'art' your mind is probably led toward canvasses of oily classics or undecipherable works of modern elitism. The music and creative energy of Aaron Bowen likely won't feature near the top of your list; that is, until you've spent an hour or so in his company where you'll find that for once, the term 'true original' is deserved and appropriately applied. ... more

Track Name: And When the Fall of Rome
A servant’s role I have endured
And I’ve endured for so so very long
I spent my days to polish your crown
The only role I thought that I deserved
Pay no attention to the jester
He’s told his story time and time again
To reassure him no ones watching
You’re all alone and no ones listening

Chorus

Oh and when the fall of Rome
The streets will fill with lions

Now her majesty sends her armies
And her court is filled with many spies
Mirror mirror on the wall
For too long you told your ugly lies
You never let me see the flowers
And never let me hear the sirens song
You kept me locked up in your tower
When they were singing to me all along

Chorus

Oh and when the fall of Rome
The streets will fill with lions

Now that your court is gone
Will you ever know my love again

Bridge

Can you feel it coming on
How will you hold on to your heart
Now that your court is gone
And all the leaves have fallen
How will you make it through this driving rain

Chorus

Oh and when the fall of Rome
The streets will fill with lions

Now that your court is gone
Will you ever know my love again
Track Name: Song #2
He’s a boy he’s just like everyone
But he’s not like anyone
With his dimly lit flashlight
He tried to sail the seven seas
Now he dreams in black and white
And hums a stardust melody

Chorus

When the mysteries of these rhymes no longer linger on
What will become of the moon
Just a light that the day turns off

She’s a girl she’s just like everyone
Has no time for anyone
Holds the poor boys fascination
Like the rising of the sun
Kiss me quick she said
There’s no more room for romance
Are you blind or can’t you see
It only lives on the silver screen

Chorus

When the mysteries of these rhymes no longer linger on
What will become of the moon
Just a light that the day turns off

In my dreams a million electric eyes now they surround me
And the gray around my silver lining is all but gone
And the birds they bring to me a joyous melody
But in the morning when I wake
All the mystery can be balanced on the edge of the dime
Where do we go from here
Track Name: Strawberry Wine
It looks like reflection of gray skies
The kind I see in my dream
But here with me its not as it seems
So put away your reservations
Lord knows I didn’t bring mine
Its here in this bottle of strawberry wine

Chorus

And I could say -----
And you’d know just what I mean

I hear your heart its speaking to me
Cause I wrote this song you hear in your dreams
It’s time to take my hand now
And leave your worries behind
It’s hear in this bottle of strawberry wine

Chorus

And I could say -----
And you’d know just what I mean

Bridge

Don’t say you don’t know me dear
When your lips they still whisper my name
I’ll take you away from here
And show you things that you’ve only dreamed
Track Name: Jeanne
Everyone’s asleep
Do not make a sound
This is when he goes wandering wandering now
Through the city streets
He does not speak a word
He holds it all there in silence
His love for her

Chorus

He paints her silhouette by memory alone
He’s guided by a hand
In the gaslight on the morn
Every time he hears her name he drifts away
Jeanne, oh Jeanne

He remembers the time
She came into him
She flowed like a red red river of wine
Now her eyes tell the tale
She’s ragged and frail
She knows now his ghost will not leave her behind

Chorus

She paints his silhouette by memory alone
Now she hears his voice
It’s calling her to go
Every time she hears her name she drifts away
Jeanne, oh Jeanne
Track Name: Teacup Boat Live
Oh cast Afloat in my teacup boat in silent seas waiting for you
thoughts in my head of what was said they fill the sails that took me from you

Chorus

Now I am all alone in the hell
come and rescue me form myself

Set adrift in my one man ship lost at sea that's never ending
waves on regent for what said on my head and left me longing

Chorus
I am all alone in the hell
come and rescue me form myself

and old paper moon in a poster sky is all that I see before me
so far from home so long to go I speak in rhyme to keep me company

Chorus
I am all alone in the hell
come and rescue me form myself
I am all alone in the hell
come and rescue me
Track Name: It's Always Raining Here
All I hear now
Is the static sound of conversation
I see your lips move
But can’t make out a word you say
But that’s okay
I’ll just open up my eyes and then I’ll realize
It’s always been this way

Chorus

And now it’s always raining here

It’s been so long now
I can’t remember life without my umbrella
So won’t you come along and join me in its shade
Don’t you be afraid
Because lightning always follows thunder
Take my hand now
Because it’s always raining here

Bridge

I can hear your cries
Quick to dry your eyes
Tears like these will stain your wings
And you will never fly

And we’re alone now
And my misery it loves your company
A headboard of stone
And a blanket diamond sky
Oh it’s time to say goodnight
This kiss has sealed our pact forever
The sun has said goodbye
And now it’s always raining here
Track Name: Don't Mind Me
Don't mind me I've only been loving you all this time
don't mind me I've only been wanting you my whole life
so do me a favor and don't say goodbye
I only want to stare into your angle eyes

Don't mind me I've only been watching you to keep you safe from harm
and I have been counting up all your tears as he's stringing you along
do me this one thing and don't say goodnight
I only want to stare into your angle eyes

how can a heart as sweet as yours o broken for all time
how can a love as strong as mine go lost in your eyes
Track Name: Mr.A
Mr. A was never the kind to have a lover
He just sat there drinking his wine
He sat in the corner watching her red dress
With only her on his mind

Chorus

I know you love the way I watch you
As you romance for pay
Late at night when the lights have gone out
And I’m the last one to stay

Madame Ore had many men that called her honey
That called on her time after time
And from the piano in the corner
Mr. A became a crooner
Sang for her night after night

Chorus

I know you love the way I watch you
You sing to no one you play
And harmony is what I offer to you
If you’ll ask me to stay

A new moon has ended
A long cold winter
Spring is here and its time now to go
I put away my notions and packed all my potions
Mr. A’s traveling curio show

Chorus

I know you love the way I watch you
You danced alone while I sang
And in the twilight are friendship was made
By the piano I played
Track Name: Macaroni
A faint light in a spiral stairway
That leads to nowhere just anywhere but here
I make my way to the garden rooftop
To watch the twinkling lights
Of my own funeral parade

Chorus

Of knighted men and pawns
Are the sums of their ambitions
How can I hold on to my heart
In a town you tear down just to build a slum
Of which I want no part

As day fails in a lonely town square
They all don their masks
To hide their true intent
And it’s all for the love of my painted lady
Of whose kiss I dream but I know I’ll never get

Chorus

Of knighted men and pawns
Are the sums of their ambitions
How can I hold on to my heart
Would you follow me down my twisted spiral
So we would not be apart
