Out-of-tune guitars

I was born on a hill
and I must have rolled a long way down to get here
The bell that used to ring in the tower
went quiet a long time ago
So now the only way we acknowledge the
passage of time and the
feast of the saints and the
total eclipse of the sun is with
out-of-tune guitars

She was born in the valley
and she must have worked hard to rise so high
The wolves that used to howl at the moon
went quiet a long time ago
So now the only way we celebrate the
aching in our hearts and the
hunger of our nights and the
loneliness of the moon is with
out-of-tune guitars

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
