A Song Without A Melody

Lyrics to a song without a melody
Music to a song that never was
We all go down fighting for a cause

A time for observation and compulsion
Of dragging the show back up to the stage
Of giving up on getting clean
And drinking my way down to New Orleans
You can run but you can't
outrun Mr. Hyde

Falling in love for the last time and
Exhibiting all of the signs
Of a slow and a steady decline

Does anyone know at the time,
or only when they look back,
which time will be their last?

What is it that happens to lovers
When they no longer make love?
What is it that lovers become?

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.
