will it. be still.

from St. Gil and other songs by Crave

The humanitarian side of Gil Scott always came out not only in the overtly political poems and songs with Brian Jackson, but in the sly way he would slip in a ballad. this is our take on that.


If you won't let me
be in this you
at least grant me
a walk along with you.

see i've been searching for a place
and like you, whispering at pixies
perhaps we can get close
placing all magic in the slight

of your hand
trying my best to be
this man who does not falter
that does not scare

lets dazzle lovelorn
let me play in your hair

well my momma told us stories
of a bliss so rare

lets dazzle them moons
let me play in your hair

see my father
was not so wise
a cuss and liar
what he was
he was just for show
just for passing through
can't be that way
can't be that way with you.

let me move these mountains
climb up your thigh
let me play in your hair
while i die in your eyes.
