Through The Cave - June 14, 2011

Not music related, but Bill's book 'Through The Cave' has been submitted for publishing and will be available over the next couple weeks. It is listed as sci-fi, but its really a mix of many genres - some action, adventure, young adult, fantasy, romance, mystery and sci-fi all rolled into one novel. Some musical references are cited as some of the different characters have different musical tastes.

July 21-Through The Cave is now available through Amazon Kindle and a few e-book sites. Barnes & Noble coming evidently. It is under the name 'Wilbert Gillham' as there is already an author named Bill Gillham, who writes childrens and/or religious books.

lyrics not on lyric sheet - October 16, 2008

Here are the three songs that due to space, and the fact that 2 of these were bonus tracks, were left off the lyric sheet. ...

I Can Only Wonder -

Although the sun was shining, gray was the color I was seeing-world of adventure for the taking, then called to me, outside my door - And as we walked together, all of the birds would sing so sweetly-And then the morning sun would shine much brighter, calling to me, outside my door. - I can only wonder where I'd be, here without your love to set me free. - Who really knows what love is, so many things are so subjective-until our lives become just like a river, that flows uphill, into the wind. - I can only wonder where I'd be, here without your love to set me free


Don't think of it as a problem - (lyrics by Sharra Acle) I sat back for a while, watched the evening sky slide into place, over you over your little dark empty worlds, I jumped into place, and filled the missing element, the vulnerability was so apparent... I watched, I used it, I really did, I learned something vitally unimportant, and woke back up to learn it all over again .... what we think we need and what we think we want, we only think we need and want 'cause we know we dont have it ... the moment had arrived, and I was quite unready, I brushed by hair and put on my shoes, I would have killed for this so long ago, its a protection to visualize the impossible ... it's a subtle protection to keep you clearly in the possible, once the impossible becomes possible, life makes a twist and chokes you to death...
Timesteps -
We stand today, on the steps that lead away, far far away they lead into a misty haze, though you look behind there's only one way to go, cannot go back ... at dawn we awake, do we wish it was midday? Late in the day, do we miss those morning rays? Youth, like the spring it fades away, and a season never stays, nor days as you cross each step beneath the sun, reaching out toward the final one .... The artist stands, carving lines upon our faces. Time is her name, and we wish our lives away....
